Chicago outdoors: Bedford Sales’ 50th leads the week of shows, 10-day Indy show opens

Dan Hampton is one headliner at Bedford Sale’s 50th anniversary open house and the Indianapolis Show opens

SACK TIME, Bears Otis Wilson (55), Dan Hampton (99) and Jeff Fisher (24) sack Bengal QB Ken Anderson.

This week in outdoors show around Chicago includes one of last 10-day shows in the country—the Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show—and Bedford Sales 50th Anniversary Open House, featuring Dan Hampton, Edwin Evers, Jason Przekurat and Jim Saric.

I am hoping to poke my head into Bedford’s 50th on Saturday after doing another story in the morning. And, with luck, I will finally go to the Indianapolis Show on a weekday next week.


The Chicago RV & Camping Show opens today, Feb. 13, and runs through Sunday, Feb. 16, at Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont.

The Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show opens Friday, Feb. 14, and runs through Feb. 23 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.

The Midwest Musky Club’s annual swap meet is 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15, at the Village Sportsmen’s Club in Alsip. There will be free hot dogs around noon.

The Bedford Sales 50th Anniversary Open House is is in Morris on Saturday, Feb. 15, and Sunday Feb. 16. Click here for the flyer.
