Big Updates for the Catch and Cook Competition. Found out yesterday that Adreno Spearfishing posted my blog about the event ( LINK "Sustainable Spearfishing in the Age of Social Media" ) which put a pretty big smile on my face!
We have some high caliber judges on the panel: Danny Abbruzzese and Todd Fisher. Wow! Even met with Matt Beaudin (Monterey Bay Aquarium exec chef) who will attend if his travel schedule permits. He even wants to try spearfishing!
We keep gaining more sponsors! Check out the first photo of some of the main prizes. There are also several custom trophies being made for a few lucky winners. Dwight Hwang and Jack Kim among the trophy creators. Please let me know if you have any questions or hesitations about the event. We want you there. Bring your family and friends! There will be lots of stuff for them to do and prizes they will enjoy!
