Observers needed for World’s Richest

Captains Classic 20028 copBY LEW HASTINGS – In case you were wondering what those beautiful tarpon posters all around town are, they are there to let you know that Southwest Florida’s premiere sport fishing event, the World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament, is just around the corner.

You can only buy these limited edition posters at the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce and like years past once they’re gone, they’re gone.

If you haven’t signed up for the competition yet there is still time just call the Boca Grande Area Chamber of Commerce at 964-0568 and we’ll save you a spot.

If you can’t enter the competition but still want to experience the thrill of the tournament and be right in the middle of it we can arrange that, too. We are looking for observers for Thursday, June 4 and Friday, June 5.

Be on the water, record tarpon releases, be a part of World’s Richest history and we will even give you a Tournament Staff commemorative T-shirt and other goodies for your assistance.

Don’t forget, the fun doesn’t end there. Tarpon Festival Weekend in downtown Boca Grande kicks off Friday, June 5 and runs through Saturday, June 6.
