The 2023 St. Louis Boat & Sportshow... Cancelled

 

 

24 October, 2022

Hi Bill:

The following email went out to our exhibitors this morning:


Dear Exhibitors,

We wanted you to be the first to know that the 2023 St. Louis Boat & Sportshow has been canceled due to the America’s Convention Center Complex ongoing renovations. The NMMA is committed to upholding a presence in St. Louis, retaining the show’s assets for future opportunities. We are exploring the viability of other venues to produce a show in the St. Louis market, while also working with the convention center on securing future dates.

We’ll be in touch with updates and opportunities impacting your business.

Thank you for your understanding and support. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at denvall@nmma.org.

Sincerely,

Darren Envall

Vice President, Midwest Boat & Sportshows
National Marine Manufacturers Association

The MDC's free virtual program Fish Skills:  Cleaning Scaled Fish will be held online from 2:30 to 3 pm on February 8, 2023.  This program will be presented by the staff of the MDC's Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center in Joplin.

 

The program will focus on cleaning scaled fish such as bass, bluegill, crappie and hybrid sunfish.  MDC Education Administrative Assistant Tim Smith will discuss equipment and techniques used for fish cleaning.........

Sierra Club Illinois’ Three Rivers Project and the City of Alton’s 4th Ward Alderwoman and Committee to Host Litter Clean-Ups

Sierra Club Illinois’ Three Rivers Project and the City of Alton’s 4th Ward Alderwoman and Committee to Host Litter Clean-Ups

ALTON, IL --
The Three Rivers Project of Sierra Club Illinois and the City of Alton’s 4th Ward Alderwoman and Committee are calling for volunteers to support two litter clean-ups in celebration of President’s Day! These litter clean-ups will help rid the environment of debris that harms habitats, threatens aquatic life, pollutes our rivers, and endangers coastal environments. Learn more and register to volunteer at one (or both!) of the river clean-ups at sierraclub.org/illinois/piasa-palisades/events.

The first clean-up is hosted by the Three Rivers Project of Sierra Club Illinois and will launch from Clifton Terrace Park at 9:00am on Saturday, February 20. This clean-up will focus on removing litter and debris along the Great River Road between Clifton Terrace and Stanka Lane. The second clean-up will launch at the James Killion Park at 11:00am on Saturday, February 20, and is co-hosted by the City of Alton’s 4th Ward Alderwoman, Rosetta Brown, and Committee.

“The Metro-East community is situated at the confluence of the Mississippi, Illinois, and Missouri Rivers, and the Three Rivers Project aims to preserve the integrity of the rivers, wetlands, forests, and floodplains in the region,” said Three Rivers Project co-Coordinator Christine Favilla. “Removing litter and debris from the region’s natural areas and waterways is critical. This work ensures that debris doesn’t make its way into our rivers, wreaking havoc on the environment and public health.”


“Protecting and preserving the natural spaces throughout our community is one of my top priorities as Alderwoman, and I’m excited to join Sierra Club Illinois and local volunteers to clean up one of our beautiful parks,” said the City of Alton 4th Ward Alderwoman, Rosetta Brown. “Alton’s hard-working families deserve access to clean parks, outdoor recreation, and protection from pollution and environmental hazards. I hope residents will join us on President’s Day to help make that vision a reality, together.”

Spring Arrives......

 

Daylight saving time is fast approaching this year.

People should expect to turn their clocks ahead an hour in the early morning of March 12. More specifically, daylight saving will begin at 2 a.m., meaning that at that time, the time will jump over to 3 a.m.

As a result of the time change, sunset will be an hour later on March 12 than it was on March 11. Sunrise will also be an hour later, meaning more darkness in the early morning hours, but more evening light, as well
