Re: Early report & photos from the FSDA Southern Open, Treasure Island, FL.

Just wanted to say thanks to the FSDA; Bill, Scott and the rest of the voluntaries for putting on a great tournament, it was both fun and a great way of losing 10 lbs. of water weight.
A special thanks to Dan for coming up with a dive trip that put us on some awesome fish.
Ricky

Re: Early report & photos from the FSDA Southern Open, Treasure Island, FL.

heh, 70th place, man im a true champion!!! HAHAHA!

Anyways, the gutting rule was part of the divers meeting deal. They changed that rule so everyone who was at the meeting would know they didnt have to. this way people who skipped the meeting would wind up at the weigh in with gutted fishes thus resulting in a Dis-qual for not being at the mandatory divers meeting ensuring a fair start for all divers.
