    SpearfishingPlanet is donating another 45" Black Grouper to the prize table, same as last year's #2 pick off the table. This is a great event that benefits diver's rights. Don't forget the Winghouse Party is this Wednesday night at 8pm at 7790 US19 in Pinellas Park. Early registrations, shirts, raffles, free beer, and food. Everyone is invited to attend.

    Thanks for putting this thread up fellas!!! If anyone missed last years tourney, they missed the new venue for the Southern Open....Gators on The Pass. Plenty of room, plenty of food, and plenty of beer. I hope to see all the regular faces at this years tournament and I expect to see a lot of new faces as well. We have had several new enthusiastic clubs form this year and the Southern Open is a great tournament to "cut your teeth" in. I look forward to meeting everyone at the weigh in and awards ceremony. Don't miss the kick off party this Wednesday, June 10, at the Wing House in Pinellas Park.
