The return of warm weather is not very long off. That means many of us soon will be looking at new golf clubs, baseball equipment, workout clothing, bicycles, fishing tackle or camping gear, among many, many other sorts of sporting goods.
So this week's Readers' Choice focuses on sporting goods: Who's the best local purveyor? Is it because of great service? The wide selection? Or the great prices?
Beginning today -- Monday April 16 -- and through 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, we'll be asking for your recommendations for the best place in town to buy sporting goods.
Give us your recommendation in the comments section below. With your help, we'll put together a list of nominees. Then look for our poll on Thursday, April 19 and vote! We'll select a winner at 5 p.m. Friday, April 20 and announce it in a story on Saturday, April 21.
In judging, we'll consider comments, poll votes and reviews in our complete directory of local businesses.
Voting results posted in real time shall not be deemed official until Patch has reviewed and confirmed all of the votes. Be sure to check out our contest rules in the PDF above.
