From Jan. 9 to 12, the annual Kansas City Boat, Sport and Travel Show is happening at Bartle Hall in Kansas City, Missouri, with over 130 vendors from all over.

There are representatives from Canada, Illinois, Kansas and Missouri at the show.

Illinois had brochures not just on fishing and hunting, but also on the wines the state has to offer, for wine enthusiasts.

Kansas was well represented, with brochures on virtually everything that goes on in the state.

Missouri also had a lot of brochures, and had very knowledgeable representation.

For those who love to fish, who doesn’t think of a Canadian fishing trip? I am one of those dreaming of a fishing trip on a cold winter day.

As I went to the Sports Show, fond memories of my childhood occurred. This is where I met Harold Ensley, the Sportsman’s Friend. Ensley passed away 14 years ago.

On a cold winter day, this is the place to go. Spend some time, there is a lot to see and learn about. They even have fishing seminars.

For the $12 admission price, you can hardly beat it. It’s an event you and your family must do on a cold winter day.
