|SKIPPER’S BLOG: NAFWS Fast Approaching
North Atlantic Fish and Workboat Show (NAFWS) is little more than a week away
(it all happens Nov. 30-Dec. 1, for the record) and I have to say – in all
honesty – things are getting exciting and hectic.
the official Show Guide is being released TODAY – you can go ahead and check it out
is a big year for us at The Navigator.
our 15th Anniversary for starters and it happens to coincide with
show itself is jam packed with exhibitors including everything from marine
products to pick-up trucks, publishing and design (that’s us, by the way...
Just saying) to boats and all point in between.
big thing The Navigator is thrilled to be involved with in partnership with
Master Promotions Ltd. is the launch of the Atlantic Canada Marine Industries
Hall of Fame. Three members from Newfoundland and Labrador will be inducted
into the hall at 2 p.m. on Nov. 30 in three categories: Mariner, Processor and
nominations are in, and the selection committee has completed its work. An
announcement will be coming VERY soon on who those three people will be.
that night, a major reception will take place at Club One, hosted by The
Navigator and the TriNav Group in conjunction with Master Promotions Ltd.
you don’t have a ticket to this thing, you’re going to miss the marquee social
event for the industry this year. We’re talking about prize giveaways, food,
drinks, and musical performances by two different acts including NL television
personality and country artist Sabrina Whyatt, as well as the rock/country
quartet Raggedy Band and Andy.
doors open at 7:30 – so you better get there early.
fishing and marine industries can be tough businesses in Newfoundland and
Labrador and Atlantic Canada as a whole. But the economic activity they create,
and the amazing people that make their livings off ocean based resources, are
worth acknowledging and certainly celebrating.
going to do that on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
