Figured I ought to kick this off and get it started, the prizes this year are absolutely rocking, and over the next couple of days, I will be putting up items that you will see on the prize table come Sunday morning.

Re: St Pete Open PRIZE TABLE!!!

Next up in the lineup, we have longtime tournament sponsor E-SEARIDER bean bags. I am not sure of the exact lineup that Pat at E-SEARIDER will have, but I can just about guarantee it will rock. If you have not ridden in rough seas on an E-SEARIDER, you truly do not know what you are missing.

H & L Electronics is stepping up this year as a first time sponsor. Board member **********tampa is the owner/operator of H & L Electronics, and he truly has some killer prices. I may very well be their biggest customer to date, as I re-rigged portions of my boat, and my Dad's entire boat through H & L Electronics.

H & L is putting up a Garmin GPSMAP 76. This is a killer little handheld, I have the exact model and I love it.

Re: St Pete Open PRIZE TABLE!!!

Not going in any particular order, I am trying to show a wide array of items that will be on the prize table. Next up we have Igloo's MAXCOLD 80 quart coolers. These are perfect drink coolers, and passable fish coolers. They do hold ice forever. We will have EIGHT of these on the prize table.

We will also have several of the 150 quart cooler (Coleman, I think) on the prize table. I am working on a pic for that

We will also have 2 9CUFT chest freezers! Perfect for freezing fish, these are really nice chest freezers.

Re: St Pete Open PRIZE TABLE!!!

Armorbags has always been a BIG BIG sponsor of the tournaments, and Dave Carmichael has always been there for the spearfishing community. I have a ton of Armorbags, and I use them for all kinds of things, not including diving. Shoot, I use one of their giant rolling dive bags to keep my snowboarding gear in. I do not know what Dave has in store for us this year, but I am sure it will kick ass

www.armorbags.com

Here are just a few pics of some of their products

Re: St Pete Open PRIZE TABLE!!!

Well, that is it for now, as I am tired and am going to bed. Stay tuned for more (MUCH, MUCH MORE) tomorrow!

If you are on the fence for the St. Pete Open, get off the fence and get onboard! This tournament is going to rock, and the weigh in is a spectacle (at least the portions I can remember)

Re: St Pete Open PRIZE TABLE!!!

KBI Industries, the manufacturers of Flexi Pave have put an entire new driveway on the prize table. This surfacing system is very high end. I can promise you, if its on the table when I pick, I am grabbing it and I will finally be able to get rid of my asphalt driveway.
