2017 Omaha Boats, Sports, and Travel show
« on: January 21, 2017, 09:39:01 AM »
I was just looking up when the boat and travel show is in Omaha this year. Looks like it will be held February 24th, 25th, and 26th per the Century Link's web site. Amber and I are off that weekend, so we will be free to attend the show either the 25th or 26th.

Just throwing it out there to see if anyone wants to do what we have done the past few years (meeting up and going to the show as a group and then going to the Mat  for a meal after the show?

Thanks

     I should be available, at least nothing scheduled at this point for that weekend.  Are you thinking Saturday or Sunday?

Looks like a good group. Would lunch work better for everyone to go instead of supper?

I'm open to either lunch or dinner.  Meeting everyone for a good meal and comraderie is actually more the event, having a boat/RV show is just excuse to get together.  What say ye all?

After seeing the weather forecast for Friday and Saturday for the central part of the state, we are on the fence if we will be in Omaha or not. We will be playing it by ear

Sioux city is the current bullseye, so it will likely track through central Nebraska to get there.  Be safe, see ya when we see ya.

Looks like it's just down to us two and the wives.  We're probably going to go early and eat lunch at the show.  We have to leave around 3:00.  we'll still meet up whenever you get there.
