Fund Raising Idea = Lovers Key Fishing Tournament!


The Fundraising Committee for the proposed visitor center at Lovers Key State Park has presented to the FOLKS Board the idea of hosting an annual Fishing Tournament at Lovers Key State.

The Friends of Lovers Key, Inc. (FOLKS) is seeking volunteers for two phases of a proposed Annual Lovers Key State Park “Backwater Roundup Fishing Tournament”.

Phase Two: Tournament Day Volunteers – Captains meeting setup, weigh in, MC/Host, rules chairperson, etc.

The proposed fishing tournament is a Catch and Release (no kill) event with all rules and regulations of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FFWCC) being imposed. The event is being planned as a Summer/Fall 2013 launch date (times to be announced).

Those interested in being Phase One volunteers please contact Joshua Tuyls, Fishing Coordinator for details and the next schedule planning meeting. Contact phone is 239-765-1040 at the Lovers Key Resort. Kindly leave your contact telephone number and email for a return call.

Planning needs to begin now for this project and all interested people are asked to please help. The Fishing Tournament promises to be the largest fundraiser for the proposed Visitor Center for Lovers Key State Park. Join the initiative and help FOLKS secure the future of Lovers Key Visitor Center.

Contact Joshua Tuyls, 239-765-1040 today.

Thank you in advance for your support.
