When DFW Summer Boat Expo returns to Market Hall in July 20-23 on display will be many of the in nautical lighting trends in, on and under the water.
“The lighting and accessories are always strong draws for our guests,” stated Bron Beal, executive director of the DFW Boat Expo, in a press release. “There continue to be innovations and ways that people can distinguish their boats and other watercraft through unique lighting, especially LED lighting.”
LED lights use only 10-20 percent of the power needed by traditional incandescent bulbs and also save power compared to fluorescent lights. LEDs can operate at lower temperatures and tolerate vibration better than incandescent bulbs. Their service life surpasses traditional lights, with some LED lights able to last for up to 50,000 hours.
LED lights also have multiple uses out on the water. For utility purposes, they can help with navigation, illuminate a dock, attract fish and light the water for nighttime swimming and diving. The lights are both functional and fun. For decorative purposes, they can illuminate a cabin, light up a deck and add an accent glow to a console. Some of the higher-end systems can even connect to Wi-Fi and iTunes, causing the lights to pulse to the beat of the music and creating the perfect party atmosphere.
“Our crowds love to see how many customizable options there are for living a life on the water. And after our record-breaking DFW Summer Boat Expo in 2016, it seems fitting that we keep the party going in 2017,” Beal stated.

Texas Woman’s University student-athletes captured their fourth consecutive Lone Star Conference Academic Excellence Award presented by Balfour alongside Cameron for the women’s award as the athletic departments with the highest collective team GPA among its teams for the 2016-17 academic year while Eastern New Mexico claimed the men’s honor.
The Pioneers, Aggies and Greyhounds each will receive a cash reward and custom trophy.
TWU recorded the top team GPA in volleyball with three individuals posting perfect 4.0 marks. CU posted the top team GPA in softball with three individuals with pristine 4.0s, and ENMU boasted the top team GPA in five of the 10 men’s sports including baseball, football, indoor and outdoor track and field, and soccer with five individuals with flawless 4.0s.
The award winners were determined by a point system, with points distributed according to finish by sport in which there is a NCAA Division II Championship after a conference-wide comparison of team GPA’s. The member institution with the highest team GPA in each sport was named the sport’s Academic Champion and earned five (5) points toward the overall award. Each sport’s runner-up picked up four (4) points and third-place three (3) points toward the overall award. Any program with a Team GPA of 2.00 and above earned one (1) point. Points for each member institution were totaled by gender and then divided by that institution’s number of counter programs in that gender to arrive at the comparison value.
The following are the sport academic champions:
