For the first time ever, Pontoon & Deck Boat magazine is opening up its annual Shootout Boat Test to the public to help celebrate its 20th anniversary. PDB Days is a two-day event that kicks off Friday, September 19 at the Chateau on the Lake in Branson, Mo., on beautiful Table Rock Lake.
PDB is the only magazine dedicated to pontoon and deck boats and in September all the major manufacturers will have boats on the water for demo rides as well as its latest models on display throughout the show.
“We’re excited to be hosting our 20th boat test and we’re going to try something a little different this year,” said PDB Editor Brady Kay. “For those dealers looking for a new line to feature there’s never been a better time to check out the competition.”
PDB Days is more than just an opportunity to see the latest boats on the water, the unique one-of-a-kind venue will also offer exhibitor displays—both on the dock and inside the showroom of the high-end resort that over looks the lake.
Events planned for the PDB Days celebration include the annual McKainer Barrel Race Friday afternoon where attendees will be invited to watch as manufacturers race their performance model pontoons through an obstacle course as they compete in four different engine categories for top honors. Following the race, a sunset tie-up/evening cruise for all boats will be held on the lake and then live music by the pool to end the evening. On Saturday there will a pontoon boat giveaway where one lucky attendee will leave the show with the complete engine and trailer package.
Mark your calendars today and plan on getting a sneak peek at the 2015 models at PDB Days in September in Missouri. For more information visit www.pdbmagazine.com/pdb-days.
