It is time to get organized for our upcoming Key West trip. We are planning to have our fishing tournament on Saturday, 5/2. This will be a Boat tournament – you can choose your own teams but there must be at least 2 club members on the boat. Tentative rules are below. Everyone will be on their own for booking boats for the tournament. I will get out a list of potential boats but there are plenty of excellent captains to choose from. Remember, that weekend is the opening of grouper season and prime time for the mutton snapper spawn so please organize your teams and book your boats early. I will help put people together that are looking for a boat or looking for anglers to fill their boat.

Everyone typically stays in a variety of hotels so you will be on their own for booking a room. I will try to get out a list of potential hotels and rates.

Frank Schmidt and Sherman Nicks are organizing a dive for any members interested in diving on Friday. Please contact them if you are interested.

We are also organizing a group dinner for Friday evening at Benihana. Everyone thought they did a great job for us at our tournament 2 years ago so we will put something together again.

At this point, we need to get a list of those people interested in attending. If so, please email me the following info:

How many (and who) in your party –

Do you need a boat –

If you have a boat booked, are you looking for additional anglers (if so, how many) –

Are you interested in attending dinner at Benihana Friday evening and , if so, how many in your party –
