Preparations are in full swing for Venezuela’s prestigious 14th Annual International La Guaira Billfish Shootout Tournament scheduled from April 8th through the 13th, and this year’s event promises to be one of the best ones yet.
Same as last year, this year’s Shootout will be the first leg of the famed Spanish Main Caribbean Series. Several new sponsors have come on board such as Diplomatico Rum, GlobalStar Venezuela, and Flying Fisherman Sunglasses among others.
In addition, part of the proceeds from Shootout 2008 will be donated to Fundacion Amigos del Niño con Cancer (Friends of Children with Cancer Foundation,) and a dinner and silent auction during the tournament will be dedicated to raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
For information about registration, the Spanish Main Series, a complete list of available charter boats to compete in the event, dockage for those bringing their own boats, how to become a Shootout Sponsor or participate as an Official Observer, or any other questions you may have, please call us in the U.S. at (305) 213-5521 or send an email to rick(at)intlbillfishtourns.com.
You can also register online at IntlBillfishTourns.com. We remind all interested teams that there is an Early Bird registration discount in effect until February 15th, so take advantage of it.
Thank you for your kind attention to the above and we hope to see you at the 14th annual International La Guaira Billfish Shootout Tournament this April.
With best wishes for great fishing during this New Year,
