The 2014 Gulf Coast Lionfish Roundup kicks off on May 1st...
Thanks for posting the announcement.


A couple of minor corrections:
  • There will be no prize ($200) for the most lionfish on the first day of the tournament. However, there will be a prize for each of the following days.
  • They will stop accepting lionfish at 1 PM on the last day (May 4th).

This is going to be a great time. Hope to see everyone there!
