    Default The 2015 Tournament Season Kickoff Event-Florida Freeshafters Spring Trash Can Slam

    The Florida Freeshafters will kickoff the 2015 tournament season with the Spring Trash Can Slam on Sunday March 29th. The rules could not be any simpler. No captain's meeting. Begin shooting at dawn after leaving the port of your choice on Sunday, and be in the weigh in line by 5PM with your largest single legal grouper, snapper, hogfish, sheepshead, and grunt. They are weighed in a trash can, and one point is given for each pound of fish. Highest three aggregate totals win. Cash prizes......1st place takes $150, 2nd takes $100, and 3rd takes $50. In addition there will be an optional calcutta where the heaviest legal fish (does not necessarily have to be one of the five trash can eligible species e.g amberjack, black drum barracuda, cobia etc) takes 100% of the calcutta money. Each competitor will receive a ticket for a dive and non-dive related prize raffle after the weigh-in.

    The weigh-in will be at the new location of Get Hooked Grill (Get Hooked Grill - Almost Waterfront Restaurant and BarGet Hooked Grill | Almost Waterfront Restaurant and Bar) at the Port Hudson Marina. Food and drink specials after the weigh-in TBA. The pre-party and registration will be at the Sunlake Beef O' Brady's located at 18835 State Road 54, Lutz FL 33558 just east of the Veteran's Expressway on Wed March 25th beginning at 7PM. Tournament registration is $50, and includes a tournament t-shirt. Part of the proceeds will benefit Multiple Sclerosis. You can also register via Paypal (see attached flyer for Paypal address). The optional calcutta entry is $10 winner take all.

    Keep checking in on this thread for tournament updates. Hope to see everyone there.

    Thanks Bill, we would love to have you and some of the Apollo Beach boys come up for the event. You can shoot down your way and run up I-75 or the Veterans Expressway to the weigh in. We are trying to do the tournament twice a year (Spring and Fall) and keep it simple and fun for anyone. Just want to have a fun family oriented one day event and raise a little money for some charities.

    We have always had a blast at your Brandon weigh-in, Scott! My wife is out of town that weekend so we may just have to put a team together.

    Anyone undecided about shooting this, it really is a fun - no pressure day. Shoot 5 fish, bring them to the weigh in that afternoon, get a t-shirt, drink some beer with fellow spear fishermen and help a charity at the same time! Last year 25 lbs. total weight put you in the top three so anyone has a chance. Come on out and start the season off with us.

    The tournament is on! Check out Sunday's great forecast below. Thanks to Kyle of Diver City Scuba for stepping up with the lion's share of the raffle prizes. You can still register.....just contact Rob or Greg whose phone numbers are listed on the tournament flyer attached to post #1 of this thread.

    Florida Freeshafters are always well represented at other tournaments, and we urge other dive club members to do the same this weekend. Where are you TBSC, SPUC, SUC, Seals??? A little quid pro quo goes a long way. See everyone at Get Hooked Grill Sunday afternoon.

    Due to high winds the tournament was postponed until April 19. Now all you procrastinators have more time to sign up and dive in warmer water!! See everyone at the TBSC and then the following week at The Trashcan Slam!
