National SportFishing, Hunting & Outdoor Expo 2010

The SportFishing, Hunting and Outdoor Expo 2010 is headed to the fishing capital of the Northeast United States. That’s us!

Starting at 2 p.m. on Friday, April 9, Floyd Bennett Field will be all set up with exhibitors and news media.

The big trucks will be rolling down Avenue U with their kayaking cargo, so let’s hope they read the recent news about overpass clearance problems or be ready to catch a k-turn.

If you missed the application deadline to be an exhibitor, you can still check out the application for some really surprising facts about our area. For instance, did you know that “60 percent of all hunting licenses in the entire state of New York are purchased by Long Islanders and NYC residents”?

Not much of an exhibitionist, you say? You can pack up the kids, drive off (yes, there’s free parking), and go check out the kayaks, boats and water-related vessels that the trucks dragged in. Check out the website for the full details.
