Once again, the Calgary Boat and Sportsmen’s Show drew large crowds when it came to town on February 6-9, 2014. It was held at the BMO, Stampede Park.
According to Laurie Paetz, Alberta Show Manager, “the Calgary Boat and Sportsmen’s Show caters to those that enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, whether it is camping, hiking, adventure tourism, hunting, fishing, or time at the lake, this year’s Show has it covered, and the beauty is that it is all at one easily accessible location.” There were over 75 marine manufacturers represented at the show with a huge selection of watercraft, and over 17 million dollars in marine products that delighted many outdoor enthusiasts.
Southern Albertan’s were in for a big treat this year when they were given the chance to meet Troy Landry from the Swamp People® television series on HISTORY®. In addition, award winning artist Jack McEntire, known to many as “Chainsaw Jack” was at this year’s Show presented by Husqvarna. He demonstrated his craft and working on a sculpture. The Show also featured Outdoor Writer and Photographer Brad Fenson, Claudio Ongaro, one of Canada’s largest Waterfowl Outfitters, and TJ Schwanky and Richard Mellon of Outdoor Quest TV. They shared stories as well as techniques and tricks they have mastered over their decades of experience.
Family fun was also at the show this year with children under the age of 12 could try their hand at catching a live trout for a donation of $2.00, which goes directly to the Calgary and Sarcee Fish and Game Association. As a non-profit corporation, Canadian National Sportsmen’s Shows is committed to conserving Canada’s outdoors and instilling Canadian youth with an appreciation for nature and outdoor activity. CNSS uses the proceeds from these shows to support and promote outdoor campaigns and programs in Canada. Since the first Show in 1948, more than $32,000,000.00 has been donated.
