Cabin Fever Hits Hard (02/25/11)

Hello Folks,

There is a lot of cool seminars and sales coming to our area over the next few weeks. We have already seen the "Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show" in Harrisburg, Pa. and the Philadelphia Show, which was held this past week.

The Harrisburg Bass Pro Shop is holding it's Spring Fishing Classic over the next few weeks and a lot of great anglers will be on tap. Kevin Van Dam was at the BPS today. Tomorrow, Chris and Woo Daves (2000 Bassmaster Classic Champ) come to the Harrisburg BPS for Bassmaster University Seminars.

As you can see, there is a lot of cool seminars and events happening locally. BPS has their reel trade in which started today and runs through March 4. You hand in an old and used reel and BPS gives you a certificate for a certain % off any new reel you buy. The percentage off depends on the cost of the reel you purchase. I have taken advantage of this program in the past.

All used reels are evaluated and fixed. They're then distributed to children for use... Cool beans!

The Calvary Church Outdoor Expo will be held in Souderton, Pa. on March 26, 2011.
