    For those that may be interested, the Canton Boat Show is this weekend. They have moved it from the Civic Center to the Stark county fairgrounds this year. In years past, they have given out a $10 coupon for Gander Mountain - not sure if they will this year or not. I found the following from the timesreporter.com:

    Outdoor notebook: Shirhal, Kiser will be putting on seminars at Canton Boat Show
    A few big names are coming out for the 21st annual Canton Boat Show that will be held at the Stark County Fairgrounds.

    The three-day event will be held Feb. 5 and 6 and will feature outdoors writer and EverStart Series Pro Bass fisherman John M. Shirhal, and Jack Kiser, host of the “Buckeye Angler,” which is televised on PBS.

    Shirhal has been an Ohio bass tournament fisherman for 30 years and has competed nationally for the past five. He has written and presented seminars explaining various techniques for catching largemouth and smallmouth bass. Shirhal, the author of “The Complete Guide to Bass Tournament Fishing,” will host four seminars at the show.

    Kiser’s show is a PBS program whose focus is on fishing in Ohio’s public waters. He will present seminars on the correct way to begin fishing and catching northern pike.

    Both will host seminars under the following schedule: Saturday – Noon, Shirhal; 2 p.m. – Kiser; 4 p.m. Shirhal. Sunday – 1 p.m. Shirhal; 2 p.m. – Kiser; 3 p.m. – Shirhal.

    The show will run Friday from 4-9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

    Tickets are $3.50 at the door for adults and children under 14 are free. Parking is also free.

    interesting! Is there a real simple way to get there coming from I77 south?? Or will I be better off looking for directions online?? I am not super familiar with all of Canton, so I may get lost. I just did not know if there was a real easy way to find it.

    Sure. Get off at the Timken Stables, head west to the first light. Take a left. Right at the first light. Then, left at the nest light (should be a Speedway gas station on the left). Fair is on the right.

    I wouldn't mind going to that. I'll be busy.

    FYI for those of you heading to the Canton Boat Show, Crankus's directions are correct . . .thought I would add some street names for ya . .:) . . .get off of I-77 on the 13th St. exit you will see both Mercy Medical Center and The Stables restaurant . . . head west on 13th St. and make a left turn on Wertz Ave. . . . fairgrounds will be on your right a few blocks down Wertz Ave. . . . . guessing it is about a mile or two tops from the exit . . . hoping to make it there on Sunday . . .see ya there. . ;)

  7. There is an easier way to the Stark co. fairgorunds. Go past the exit they talk about past the stables. Get off at the next one 6th St. N. Downtown exit. Go through that light and turn right at the next one. Five blocks you'll dead end at the fair grounds. Turn right for the main gate.
