5/1 – 3 Key West Trip

 In LHPSSA News

Gentlemen,

Our trip is now less than a week away. Even the weather looks like it is cooperating. We have 5 boats fishing the tournament on Saturday. Rules and teams are listed below. Sherman Nicks will be master of ceremonies. All the team captains (whoever is listed first for your boat below) should contact Sherman after you are done fishing to report your catches so he can determine the winner.

Trash talking to your tournament opponents will commence Friday evening over dinner at Benihana (3591 S Roosevelt Blvd). Dinner reservations are set for 7pm. We have 35 people signed up (see list below).

We have a set menu for the group:

Menu: $27.00 (including tax and gratuity) per person.

Teriyaki Chicken Dinner: Served with Hibachi Fried Rice, Japanese Onion Soup, Benihana Salad, Shrimp Appetizer, Hibachi Vegetables, Homemade Dipping Sauces and Japanese Hot Green Tea.

If anyone has issues with the menu, they can order whatever they want from the general Benihana menu. Everyone is responsible for paying their own tab. In addition, sushi platters for the group will be at your tables. The club is picking up the tab for this.

If for any reason you will not be able to make dinner or will not be able to make it on time, please contact Sherman Nicks (954 610 3639) so that he can coordinate with Benihana. Benihana has been very flexible and accommodating with us to handle our group so please be sure to communicate any changes in plans.

We currently do not have any events organized for the ladies/anyone that will not be fishing on Saturday. There was a lunch at Sunset Key in prior years. We have the contact information for Sunset Key to try to set it up if there is a group interested. I would like to get someone to organize this if there is sufficient interest so please let me know if there is any interest in the event and if anyone’s spouse would volunteer to coordinate.

Let me know if there any changes to the list below. I will only be around until Thursday morning to help coordinate things. If something comes up after that, please get to Sherman.

Thanks,

Mark
