On January 10th, a fellow captain and friend of mine, Captain Dean Parks, passed away from a heart attack.  In his honor, and in an effort to raise funds for his fiance Amanda and their two children, Marlee and Fisher, there will be a fishing tournament on March 30th.  With a good high tide mid afternoon, we decided to run the tournament from 11AM to 4PM to maximize fish catching opportunities.  There will be no prizes in this tournament as our goal here is to just have a good time and raise as much money as possible. If you would like to participate in your own boat, the entry fee is $125.  This includes 4 free dinners at the Ozona Pig Restaurant in Ozona, Florida on the evening of the tournament.  There will  be plenty of good food and music to be had at "The Pig" following the tournament.  Should you want to fish with a captain, the charge is $450 for 4 people.  Dinner for 4 is included on a guided boat as well. As this is a fund raising tournament, all payments  and tips to the captains will be donated. I am looking for a crew for the tournament so if you would like to participate, simply respond to this email.  I will take the first person or group that responds. When you do respond, please let me kow if you would be willing to fish with another captain as well.  If so, I will try and get you lined up. For more information on Dean and the tournament (registration forms included), simply go to www.captaindeanparksclassic.com. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
