Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

You furthered your SCUBA Training and Education beyond Open Water Diver, didn't you?

Then why not further your Firearms Training and Education beyond the Basic Firearms Course you took to get your CWP?

Keith Hardesty, of Adaptive Defense Solutions, can take you to the next level. He is a current State of Florida, K Licensed, Firearms Instructor and provides handgun, long gun and shotgun instruction to new and experienced firearm owners. As well as provide Florida Concealed Weapons and Firearms License instruction too.

After 4 years in the US Air Force as a Security Policeman he spent 6 years as a Police Officer in Atlanta, Georgia where he served as both a uniformed and plain clothes officer. He mostly investigated and focused on violent crime throughout North West Atlanta.

Additionally, he served as a Federal Special Agent in the following capacities: Criminal Investigator; Firearms Instructor; Defensive Techniques Instructor; Special Response member; and Use of Force Instructor. Over 20 years of providing Firearms Instruction to local, state and federal law enforcement personnel makes him the right choice for you too.

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

New to the spearfishing tournament community, please welcome Freedom Boat Club! An alternative to boat ownership, the club offers members unlimited access to all locations in the bay area, as well as access to every location worldwide. With new additions to Tierra Verde and Hernando, FBC has over a 100 boats in the Tampa Bay area to meet the needs of every style boater. The biggest question for us would be, "can we spearfish from the boats?" The answer is yes!

From family outings on the pontoon, to running offshore in a 23' center console, members look forward to coming into the dock and letting someone else clean the boat for a change! Look for Freedom Boat Club of Tampa Bay reps at the weigh-in and prize ceremony.

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

Salt life Sunglasses are 100% made in Italy using Swiss made TR90 material and Zeiss lenses, the finest lenses in the world. Our Zeiss lenses have a proprietary 5 layer anti-reflective coating on the inside of the lens that eliminates glare and a double ri-pel coating on the outside and inside of the lens that functions like rain-ex so water bounces off our lenses. All of our coatings are vacuum sealed on so they are permanent and will not delaminate. Colors appear vibrant and natural with Zeiss's exclusively formulated tints that bolster contrast and clarity without distorting the color spectrum. You will see a significant difference between our Zeiss lenses and all other brands. Our polycarbonate lenses are lightweight, shatterproof and scratch resistant. Our lenses are polarized and offer 100% UV protection from harmful rays. Salt Life Optics is a new Platinum sponsor this year so look out for a variety of their Sunglasses to be on the prize table this year!

Re: 2016 Tournament Sponsors

The Tampa Bay Spear Fishing Club would like to thank local spearfishing pioneer, Ray Odor, for once again supporting our tournament. Ray has been killing fish since before most of you were born and continues to support our sport. Ray has everything a serious spearfisherman needs: shafts, stringers, spear points & tips, spear extensions, pole spears, and poppers of all calibers. All made in the USA by the legendary 'Lobster Mobster' himself. Check out Ray's site online or better yet, give me a call directly and go check out his inventory in person.
