Quad kickoff at boat show

According to the BYM News online, the 2008 New York National Boat Show, which takes place from December 13-21 in Manhattan, is a BIG day for the Quad. (BYM reports on international boating, marine & maritime news.)

Here is some of what they report:

The official kick-off celebration of the 400th birthday of the Hudson River -- the Hudson River Quadricentennial -- takes place Saturday, December 13, in conjunction with opening day of the show. The Quadricentennial (is) a year-long celebration that will include many local boating events and takes a rich look at the history of the Hudson River, a waterway essential to the history and present enjoyment of recreational boating throughout all of New York.

So if you like to float on the Hudson River, this is a date you might want to mark in your calendar.
