The Keys suffered much damage from Hurricane Irma. They have been working hard to get most of the repairs done; so many of your favorite places will be back in business. We are the largest Tarpon Tournament in Marathon, possibly one of the largest in Florida. The locals really need our help. We can do that by having the biggest Tournament that we have ever had. Doing this will not only help our charity but also the economy in Marathon. Please sign up as early as you can so we can accommodate as many supporters as possible. All of our facilities that we use will be ready for the Tournament.
As a supplier attending this years Tournament please consider some type of sponsorship or perhaps increasing you Sponsorship from last year of our Tournament because all of the sponsors’ monies go directly to our charity, “The Ronald McDonald Summer Camp Program”, to which we donated $ 46,000.00 last year. We welcome all levels of sponsorship. But it is truly the sponsorship dollars that help us to donate more money for the kids. Please give Mark Freeman or Bob Traa a call and we are sure we can find something that will fit your budget and will really help our Kids and the Summer Camp program.
Last year we caught and released 110 Tarpon. This year we are out to break the all time record which was set in 2008 of 184 Tarpon. There is a bounty on Fish # 185 this year the Captain of the Boat, and the team that catches it wins $ 3,500.00.
We hope you will consider joining us this year. The Tournament is always a lot of fun and we have been very successful raising money for “The Ronald McDonald Summer Camp Program” of the Delaware Valley.
I think this tournament is a great example of the three-legged stool. Our success has been due to the participation of Owner/Operators (both present & past), Suppliers, and McDonald Corporate personnel and along with the many guests that have attended over the years.
Looking forward to seeing you this year in Marathon! Condo availability tighter this year, so early commitment is highly recommended!
