Smile Announcing the 2009 Spear Wars Blue Storm Tournament Series

We are now accepting registrations for the 2009 Spear Wars Blue Storm Tournament Series.

Go to www.SpearWars.com to register now!

“Spear Wars Blue Storm Tournament Series” is about the spirit of competition in the rapidly growing sport of Spearfishing. The series has raw excitement, danger, and competition. Contestants compete against each other for prizes and trophies in the largest such aggregate scoring contest in the world.

The three tournaments for 2009 are in these locations with these dates below.

First up is the SBO which is in the same place as always on the west coast of Florida. We will be doing most of the same things as in the past years.

Then, we move to the east coast of Florida to a wonderful venue that has a cool waterfront restaurant and a nice meeting hall at the popular diving marina in Riviera Beach.

Lastly, we cap off the series in Key Largo. This location is in relatively easy driving distance for all traditional SBO contestants.

This is your weigh-master checking in. I will be there!

Remember to have your fish properly gutted and iced. Also, check out the rules very carefully...there are some changes from last year. Go to this thread to check out the rule changes.

Since they are indo-pacific it is a little odd for them to be on our Gulf of Mexico/Atlanic tourney shirts.

Thanks for posting all of the information for all three tourney's at one time this year!

We will be ready for the storm.

Ahh.....that is one of the mysteries set out in this trilogy of the 2009 Spear Wars.

Notice the clownfish is a courtier of the mermaid.

The species mermaid is located where?

That is the most scientific question.

Quote:
courtier   Spelled Pronunciation [kawr-tee-er, kohr-] –noun

1. a person who is often in attendance at the court of a king or other royal personage.

2. a person who seeks favor by flattery, charm, etc.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Origin: 1250–1300; ME courteour < AF courte(i)our, equiv. to OF cortoy(er) to attend at court (deriv. of court court ) + AF -our < L -ōr- -or 2 ; suffix later conformed to -ier 1
