It was our privilege to host the qualifying round at the Burnt Store Marina and Burnt Store Golf and Activity Club. We were all impressed with the outstanding men and woman who came together as anglers, scientists, observers,volunteers and of course the production and tournament team. The concept of catch and release, especially for an endangered and stressed population of animals, will bring to sport fishing a reality that we can enjoy these tournaments and still allow the sharks to live another day. My seven year old grand-daughter summed it up..".Grandpa, now when I get big there will be sharks for me to show my children." Great Job!
