The 9th Annual Gary Nix Memorial Bash on the Blue Party & Fishing Tournament has some “reel” exciting news to share. This year, we will be supporting two great charities, Kids Charity of Tampa Bay, Inc. and the Boys and Girls Club of Tampa Bay. The tournament will be held at the Tampa Harbour Yacht Club & Marina, 5200 W. Tyson Avenue, on October 28-29, 2010. The Annual Gary Nix Memorial BASH ON THE BLUE Party & Fishing Tournament brings the community together for a fun weekend of fishing and the ever popular pre tournament party, all the while raising critical funds for kids in our community who need us most.
The festivities kick off Thursday evening October 28th, from 6:00 - 9:00 pm with a fun party highlighted by dinner, music, casino tables and silent and live auctions.
The inshore, catch and release, fishing tournament is Friday, October 29th, from 7:00 am - 3:00 pm. Anglers compete for Snook, Trout and Redfish. Fishing is followed by a barbeque picnic, featuring an awards ceremony with a grand prize of $1,000, other cash prizes and trophies.
This year we are sharing the proceeds with two worthy causes that we know our beloved Gary would wholeheartedly support. We are big fans of our friends at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, who for over 80 years have provided a safe place for kids to grow and learn. This year, we have also included our new friends with Kids Charity of Tampa Bay, a group of concerned individuals whose mission is to improve the quality of life for abused, abandoned, and neglected children throughout Tampa Bay.
