52nd Annual FSFA Offshore Slam Fishing Tourney

JUNE 5TH – 6TH, 2020
2020 TOURNAMENT CANCELLED

To our Valued Sponsors, Club Members and Fishing Friends,

The Florida Sports Fishing Association Board of Directors & 52nd Annual Offshore Slam Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Tournament, scheduled for June 5-6, 2020.

Unquestionably FSFA, our Sponsors and the hundreds who participate each year in this event are disappointed. The health of all participants, volunteers and friends is the utmost importance to us. Given the Government orders of no large group gatherings and social distancing along with all major venues now being closed has created a very difficult situation in executing this event. FSFA’s objectives for the sponsors and our fishing community is being a responsible organization, our continued civic duty and having the best interests in mind for all involved.

This tournament has been the FSFA Club’s largest event for our fishing community and given the negative financial impact and burden that this pandemic has created on so many of our local businesses, it is the Boards fiduciary responsibility to our sponsors and members to cancel the 52 nd
Offshore Slam tournament. We appreciate everyone’s continued support and look forward to seeing you in next years Offshore Slam.

It is our sincerest hope your business, staff and families will recover from these recent events. Thank you for your continued support. Our monthly meetings of the FSFA will soon return and we invite you to join us as a guest or member. Since 1968 the FSFA is the Club in east central Florida for family, fun & fishing. Future meetings and events can be found at  FSFACLUB.org. We look forward to hosting the Offshore Slam in 2021.

With our sincere thanks,

The Board and 52nd Annual Offshore Slam Committee
