THE SHORT REPORT - REFRESH (F5) OFTEN
5:15 a.m. - Fri. Aug. 27, 2015. Erica has passed the Virgin Islands and with very little rainfall or wind. After two storms in a week we are not sure of what can be done to salvage the 2015 ABMT. Boats have scattered from the storm and we have not been informed of their intent to return. We are going to poll those who remain and possibly run a 2 day (Sat. Sun.) old fashioned "Boat Tournament" while the observers are still in town. At this point the 'Wet N' Wild' center console is still on for Saturday and Sunday.
Everyone purchase your raffle tickets (great prizes!) because the online sales end tonight at midnight (28th.).
Plenty going on here - Not just a world renowned marlin tournament but also the 3rd. Annual 'MarlinFest' which is staged over the same dates. Picture 'MarlinFest' as a full week of fun activities including a golf tournament, Jost Van Dyke, BVI snorkel/beach trip, a 2 day center console tournament and a chowder contest!

Have you checked out all the raffle prizes that have come in? Our goal is to develop a world-wide raffle that fishermen everwhere will look forward to each year on the August Moon. There are industry offerings of fishing trips with famous Captains, fishing lodge discounts, fishing reels and valuable art. If you win we'll mail your prize to you anywhere in the world! To see the latest offerings and to purchase raffle tickets: Go Here Purchase tickets early (we email back your ticket numbers) because online sales will end at midnight Aug. 28, 2015. Winning ticket numbers will be displayed Sept. 1st. on the same page as the prize listings.
There is excitement brewing over our 2 day 'Wet N' Wild' Center Console Tournament (Aug. 28-29).
