2018 Tournament Sponsors

The Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club welcomes all shooters to the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge on June 1st-3rd, 2018.

This not-for-profit tournament's success depends on all our participants as well as our sponsors. We would like to thank all of our returning and new sponsors for what is shaping up to the best prize table ever. Please take a minute to scroll through this thread for updates on all those participating sponsors in this year's Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge. Also, visit our club Website and Facebook for tournament updates.

Our TOP FIVE aggregate shooters will get the top five prize picks. All other participants will get a random pick from the prize table as is in keeping with tradition. We are also scheduling one (1) rain date: June 15-17th, 2018. If that second date has bad weather, then we'll just have a huge party at Ferg's Sports Bar on June 17th and still give away all of the prizes that our sponsors so generously donated. Thanks again for the support!!!

We look forward to seeing everyone on the following dates:

Wednesday, May 16th - Kickoff Party/ Early Registration at Ferg's Sports Bar
Friday, June 1st - Captains Meeting at Aquatic Obsessions
Saturday, June 2nd - Spearfishing Tournament from Dawn until Dusk
Sunday, June 3rd - Weigh-In/ Awards Ceremony at Ferg's Sports Bar

For tournament and sponsor updates, follow our event on Facebook: 2018 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge

While AJs won't be open for this year's tournament, there will be plenty of Reef Donkey APA flowing so get registered and come enjoy a cold one on us!!
