2017 Tournament Sponsors

The Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club welcomes all shooters to the Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge on April 28th-30th, 2017.

This not-for-profit tournament's success depends on all our participants as well as our sponsors. We would like to thank all of our returning and new sponsors for what is shaping up to the best prize table ever. Please take a minute to scroll through this thread for updates on all those participating sponsors in this year's Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge. Also, visit our page, Tampa Bay Spearfishing Club, or check out the other threads on Spearboard for tournament updates.

New to 2017, our TOP FIVE aggregate shooters will get the top five prize picks. All other participants will get a random pick from the prize table as is in keeping with tradition. We are also scheduling one (1) rain date: May 12-14th, 2017. If that second date has bad weather, then we'll just have a huge party at Ferg's Sports Bar on May 14th and still give away all of the prizes that our sponsors so generously donated. Thanks again for the support!!!

We look forward to seeing everyone at Ferg's Sports Bar on the following dates:

Wednesday, April 12th - Kickoff Party/ Early Registration at Ferg's Sports Bar
Wednesday, April 12th - Early Registration ends at midnight
Friday, April 28th - Captains Meeting at Aquatic Obsessions
Saturday, April 29th - Spearfish Tournament from Dawn until Dusk
Sunday, April 30th - Weigh-in/ Awards Ceremony at Ferg's Sports Bar

Re: 2017 Tournament Sponsors

We want to welcome back, Tampa Bay Brewing Company as our title shirt sponsor! Dave and the Doble's have been brewing beer in the local area since 1995. They are also passionate about our sport and have participated in The St. Pete Open, Southern, Suncoast Challenge and other local events to support Reef Donkey APA one of their best beers in the collection. This Dry-hopped American Pale Ale is made using a secret selection of hops to give this nice dry beer a lemon/lime aroma and citrus & slight tropical fruit flavor. Although this brew Hits the classification of an APA, it drinks like a session IPA perfect for a day on the boat fishing the reef. Reef Donkey is slang for the Greater Amberjack game fish which inhabit our coastal wrecks and reefs. We hope to see some large AJ shot during the tournament this year while we enjoy a few cold ones! Take a look at our shirt design this year since you will see TBBC with Reef Donkey featured in our tournament artwork. Thanks again Dave for creating beer to match your hobbies since you have hooked most of the spearfishing community with your amazing award winning beers!!!

Please visit the Ybor City Brewpub at 1600 East 8th Avenue Ybor City Tampa, FL 33605; Westchase Restaurant 13937 Monroe’s Business Park Tampa, FL 33635 or on line at Tampa Bay Brewing Company | Craft Beer from Tampa, Florida.

Re: 2017 Tournament Sponsors

The local and esteemed Flatline Spear Guns is back for the 2017 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge!!

As always, we are proud to gain support from local companies such as Flatline Spear Guns based in Treasure Island, FL. All Flatline Spear Guns are custom-designed, individually hand-crafted, and built with 100% re-purposed wood, including Burmese teak, mahogany or reclaimed Florida cypress. These guns are easy to maneuver and laser accurate. Designed specifically for free-diving, every gun is built with the highest quality components. The extra time and attention to detail ensures each gun is a beautiful, unique killing machine.

Word has it that one of these functional pieces of art will once again be showcased in our tournament raffle, but make sure to check out Flatline Spear Guns online and support them on Facebook prior to the tournament.
