2nd Annual Spartan Tournament


Recommended Posts

As some of you know I run a fishing club at Monsignor Pace High School. Last year we had our 1st Spartan Fishing Tournament as a fund raiser for our school/club and a way to get friends, family and the community together for some fun. Thanks to over 20 sponsors, club supporters and Capt. Blanco getting a great group of guides together we all had a great time!!

We are now hosting the 2nd annual event out of La Siesta in Islamorada on August 28th. Registrations and tournament details have just started going out and we are already shaping up to easily double last years event...last year we had 12 boats (6 inshore teams and 6 offshore teams).

La Siesta has put together a group discount for us with great room prices and free dockage for the weekend for all tournament participants!

If any of you would like to join us as a team, a sponsor, a guide etc we would love to have you!

All of the forms and information (as well as the details and pictures from last year) are on our club website: PaceAnglersClub.com

Let me know if you have any questions
