NavAid2, geeks on guitars

NavAid1 cPanbo

It’s amazing how many marine electronics sales and product people can really make music. I learned that during last year’s Miami Show when Navionics hosted a benefit to aid victims of Hurricane Wilma (the one which did so much damage to South Florida just before the 2005 Ft. Lauderdale show). The Navionics “house band” played with many guests “artists” (that’s a Raymarine Product Manager wailing in the photo), and the event raised $7,000. Navaid2 will take place this Thursday evening, starting at 5pm in Room B118 of the Miami Beach Convention Center, and will benefit American Cancer Society and to the Ian McWilliam Saints Fund (McWilliam was “a friend and well-known marine industry colleague, who passed away this past fall after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer”). More info here.  Be there, or be square.
