Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

Tim and Denny O Hern from Soothing Scents (aka Quease Ease) are sponsoring the "Challenge" this year. I have to say, "this stuff really works". This is the best over the counter sea sick remedy ever made. Bill with AO has witnessed that about 50% of our scuba students WHO ARE ALREADY SEA SICK, take this and it gets rid of their symptoms and they can continue to dive. What product does that....NO ONE ELSE. We always have Quease Ease in our dry box ready to go. Thanks, Soothing Scents for once again supporting the diving community.

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

A huge thanks to Dano and the entire MAKO Team for continuing to be a sponsor of the TBSC, the FRA, the Fisher House, and MANY other spearfishing events. Dano and his Team at MAKO Spearguns offer superior quality custom railguns, plus high quality spearfishing gear, such as camouflage wetsuits, floats, floatlines and dive gear. MAKO Spearguns was founded on a unique concept of being more than just a manufacturer and supplier of high quality spearguns and underwater hunting gear. Mako focuses their attention on the spearfishing community, instead on the business of selling gear. By combining a deep connection to the spearfishing community with a line of high quality spearguns and underwater hunting gear, Mako Spearguns will continue to grow and of course, continue to give back. If you’re looking for some quality gear and superior customer service, look no further than MAKO Spearguns, please visit them on line at MAKO Spearguns, Spearfishing Gear and Freedive Gear.
