What's your email address? I would like to submit my registration and payment today to make the 7/15 deadline. Thanks!

I sent it to you in PM. Spammer blog scrapers can snag email addresses in open forum posts. See you Sunday Flip.

Re: BBO 2014 Registration is Open - Battle the Best Tournament in the Spear Wars Gala

In answer to the queries regarding Lionfish, we felt that adding Lionfish as a category would encourage those with no prior Lion-sticking experience to compete. As we do not want anyone getting stuck by one, we decided to leave them "off the table" so to speak. The concern was that a shooter would feel obligated to take them in order to remain competitive points-wise, and the risk of injury is not something we will ask of anyone.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday at the weigh-in... shoot straight, be safe, and catchemup!!!

Rob Torelli is back once again. He has moved his opertion to the east of Australia to the Kingdom of Tonga which is near Fiji.

This freedive only trip is for Spearfishing or Whale Swimming and cannot be transferred to anyone else.
