Wishing Everyone a Safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

As we close 2017 your Board of Directors would like to Thank You for participating either as an angler, sponsor or both during the 83rd Suncoast Tarpon Roundup. We are hoping 2018 will be even bigger and better. We continue to struggle with angler participation and we need everyone to understand that the more regular division anglers we have entered into the tournament, the more opportunities our anglers will have to win. We paid out over $10,000 in cash and prizes again this year, and was able to donate another $1,000 to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation on your behalf. You have a completely all volunteer Board of Directors so if you have any ideas on how to grow the tournament….we are all ears. The junior division is free. The school division is free. So we need your help to grow the tournament and invite new anglers.

Hope you have a Safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
