I just want to say thank you to all of the sponsors who helped out in our tournament last October 30th. There were 367 fish landed with an estimate of over a 95 percent release rate. Nearly 300 anglers participated and it could not have happened if not for the sponsors and volunteers. Pictures are included.
Last month, my company was bought out and I was laid off. Because of this new free time I have, I am starting the search on new sponsors early (while looking for a new job) this year hoping to keep/retain all of the old sponsors for 2011.
Next fall will be our annual 10th surf fishing tournament. If you are a manufacture, tackle shop or know a manufacture or salesman of any fishing related product and want to promote your product and help a non profit organization at the same time, then please contact me. All we want is your product. Maybe a few lures, a rod or a reel or rigs or terminal tackle. Not a lot, just something you are proud of and we could give away as a prize.
Thanks again to all of the sponsor from the 2010 HRFA surf fishing tournament and Happy Holidays to all.
