New England Boat Show - Free Tickets



I have two complimentary tickets for the New England Boat Show to give away to some lucky reader.

The New England Boat Show is at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from February 16-24.

All you have to do to have a chance to win two complimentary tickets to the show (valid for any day of the show) is to leave a short comment on this post telling me why you want to go to the New England Boat Show.

Is there a particular exhibit you want to see? Are you shopping for a new yacht? Do you want to do some comparison shopping and need to quiz a number of vendors about their products? Are you aiming to check out one or more of the seminars? Or are you just looking for somewhere interesting to go on a cold winter afternoon in Boston? Whatever the aim of your visit, just explain it in a few words in the comments.

I went to the show with some friends last year and we had a blast. I particularly enjoyed Sailfest and the Remote Control Sailing Pond and checking out all the incredibly cool charts on the Old Charts of New England stand.

But if you're currently not sure what you want to see at the show then check out Features at a Glance or browse the list of Exhibitors or peruse the list of Seminars. You are sure to find something to give you a reason to visit the show.

I will randomly pick the winner from all the entries received by 6pm EST on Wednesday 6th Feb and announce the winners shortly thereafter. So come back on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning to see if you have won.

If you are the winner I will need your snail mail address (via email) ASAP after that so I can mail you the tickets to arrive in time for the first day of the show, Saturday 16 Feb.

Go for it!

PS. Don't leave an Anonymous comment. You won't win that way! Contest not open to relatives of mine. Only one entry per person please. Decision of the judges (me) is final.

Because it's cold, I have sailing withdrawal, and I don't live too far from Tillerman!

I want to go to the boat show because as a child my dad dragged me to it every year and I was miserable. The misery of my childhood have become my obsession as an adult and now I enjoy passing on the same misery to my children and wife.

Tillerman said...

LOL Michael. I did say I would pick a winner at random. But if I were going to pick the "best" answer I think you would win!

Because...what better way to spend a day when my usual sailing grounds are frozen solid?

Michael Caswell said...

Thanks, If I don't win it is okay. I will still buy some tickets and attend the show for the sake of my family.

I would like to go to the boat show because I need n+1 boats, where n is the number of boats I own (it's in the rules) and what better boats to look at than ones I can't afford?

I think today is February 5th. I thought the deadline was the 6th. Well, we will probably go anyways since we need a new Zodiac. Thanks anyways.

Big Bad Dad and mamameeshka - you accidentally posted your comments on my post about LAST YEAR'S New England Boat Show. On the assumption that you are not time travelers I have moved them here, and posted warnings on last years post and in its comments to help other readers sent there by Google to find this year's post!

Because my wife finally gave me the okay to buy a new boat after 6 years of asking... Who wants to make a deal on a 28cc?

Tillerman said...

OK. Entries are now closed.

Anonymous at 5:36pm and 2:09PM are DSQ, I specifically said you couldn't enter as Anonymous. That leaves 7 entries.

Tillerman said...

According to randomresult.com #2 is the winner.

Well done Michael Caswell.

If you email your snail mail address to tillermeister at gmail.com I will send you the 2 free tickets.
