    I deserve to win because not only do I believe the Vancouver Boat Show is the best but because I want to support the local businesses that exhibit

  3. Dean

    I feel I should be given a chance to enjoy this wonderful event because the sea is in my blood. I am an islander born and bred so I can truly appreciate the joys of owning any of the beautiful vessels that will be on display at the show. That freedom of being the captain of your ship is just priceless.

  4. Kristy

    I’d love to win because I want to take my senior father. Our bonding time has always involved the outdoors so I’d like to take him to find some great fishing gear for next season.

  5. Olivier

    This is great! I was looking to go to this event as my wife and I are on the market for a boat. Would love these free tickets.

  6. Donna Sorenson

    I’m going to win the lottery then buy the biggest boat! Gotta dream!

    I would love to see all the new boats.
    with the low pay and high cost of living….it’s hard to get the funds to go to stuff like this.

  8. Kay

    Living in Toronto I have always missed coming back to Vancouver as it has boat shows. .. beaches… lovely friendly people! !!! Would love to take my bf from Toronto to see this boat show !!! He needs to see why i wanted to come back so badly back to Vancouver! !!!!

  12. Cathy Z

    I haven’t had a good reason, such as this event, to visit downtown Vancouver in a very, very long time. Moved to Surrey 10 years ago, and honestly cannot remember the last time I crossed Boundary Road :o) As well, hubby & I are huge fisher-people and are always trying to keep up-to-date with the newest boating needs. Would be very appreciated :o)

    I moved to Vancouver from Dubai because of the outdoor lifestyle that Vancouver has to offer. Growing up in Dubai, I saw a lot of yachts and boats growing up and found a deep interest and love for being in the sea. I’d love to win these free tickets and check some boats out :)

    My brother has had quite a year dealing with his wife’s medical issues and he loves the boat show. It would be wonderful if I could take him especially to see the latest Double Eagles, our favorite boats.

  27. Deb Robertson

    Hello!
    We live in Vernon and are making a special trip to Vancouver JUST to come to the best Boat Show in North America :)
    We have a 1991 Bayliner that we’d like to upgrade.
    I am on medical leave and my husband was laid off when the Safeway store in Salmon Arm shut down this past November.
    We could use some good luck in 2016!
    Thanks for considering us :)

  28. Mag

  30. Tanis Gies

    We recently moved to beautiful BC from Winnipeg and this is our 1st. time going to a boast show in Vancouver.My husband gave up his dream boat (Cabin Cruiser) to move us to BC as I wanted to move here to be near the ocean, we spend many hours out at the water, now if we could only dream of owning a boat !

  31. Joanne Doubrava

    I would love to take my husband to the boat show this year, his birthday is on January 22nd and he’s been looking to buy a new motor for his boat. I believe he would love to spend the day talking to the dealers and looking at the latest fishing gear that’s available. Thank you for your consideration.

  32. Jamie Grey

    I would love to we tickets to take my wife and 4 kids to see somethings they have never seen. I’m a broke marine student (BCIT marine), who has been living away from his family, and working hard to get my captain’s ticket (master500). I’m from Campbell river, and my family wants to come visit me, and do something fun in Vancouver.
    Please consider me…

  33. Would love to attend show this year as I’m finally able to purchase a boat and plan on doing so at the show because of all the great deals to be had
