    There will be a daily weigh in with daily winners and then an over-all winner in at least three groups...Largest, smallest and most and the groupings like male, female and youth. Teams will be up to 4 divers, but more people can be on boat...just no more than 4 divers. You can leave from Indain River, martin or st lucie counties, but weigh-in is in ft pierce. location of collections(gps) are required...not for each fish, but for collections so we can track them. Researchers will be here to do DNA testing on fish to further track them. further details are coming after next meeting with State FWC officials... and prizes and awards will be announced as sponsors line up. there WILL be a 25% discount for earlybird registration.

    you do not see this because it will all be announced in two weeks. I just wanted to get a save the date out there. Captains meeting and safety classes will be on Friday night June 28th on Avenue A where street will be blocked off...all near Ft Pierce Yogurt shop (sponsor). Rules will follow REEF rules from the Keys. Lawyers are fine tuning the waiver and liability issues with City now.
