I was able to sneak away from work to stop by International Sportsmen’s Expo and Arizona Boat Show being held at WestWorld in Scottsdale.

It was great to see John Kirk, Director of Communications for International Sportsmen’s Expos and he always takes time out to chat and introduce me to some of his great vendors.

Attendance seemed brisk for an opening Thursday and the good news is that you still have three more days to fully experience ISE in Scottsdale. The show runs March 23rd through the 26th and there are tons of things to see and do, for the whole family.

There are lots of great live presentations

There’s some cool new stuff:

NEW—Watersports Pond—flyboarding, wakeboarding and SUP demos
