URGENT TOURNAMENT DATE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT FINAL TOURNAMENT DATE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT FINAL - NEW DATES: October 20 - 23, 2016 We apologize that we must change our dates once again for a FINAL time. We encountered a conflict this morning with a major support supplier that forced us to move again to the dates above. We trust this will be a better time for all concerned. We have made a safety and well-being decision for all concerned to move our scheduled dates from October 6 - 8th due to the uncertainty of Hurricane Matthew. We are much better off to reschedule with hopes of great fishing weather in the future than chance high winds and dirty water. This decision and choice of dates was carefully determined as to not interfere with any other Kingfish Tournaments on our coast. We also needed ample time to reschedule our vendors, tent, a/c, advertising and social media commitments.
