Welcome to the second annual Marion County Fire Rescue Benevolence Fund Saltwater Classic. We are pleased to announce this event will be hosted by Encore Crystal Isles RV resort in Crystal River.  This will be a one day tournament on Saturday, November 9th 2013 with the Captain’s meeting on Friday, November 8th 2013 @ 6pm.  Captain’s meeting will be held at the Encore RV park club house.  Address is 11419 W. Fort Island Trail Crystal River, FL 34429. Tournament is open to the public, no Fire Dept affiliation required.  Categories will be Redfish, Trout and Grouper.  Each category will have an equal cash payout. See rules section for further details.  Immediately following the weigh in will be the awards ceremony with fish fry and raffle prizes.  Those who attended last years tournament know the fish fry and raffle event was a blast! A few changes to this years tournament, included in your $50 per person entry fee is your captains meeting dinner and fish fry dinner on Saturday after the weigh in.  Entry into the tournament is not required to attend the fish fry and raffle, so plan on having family and friends join you for a guaranteed good time after a fun day of fishing. Keep checking back as we will update what items are to be raffled and there are sure to be some awesome prizes!

PLEASE NOTE- Due to low water conditions in the Encore channel at low tide, any boats requiring more than 12 inches of draft may want to consider contacting Twin Rivers Marina @ 352-795-4283. They are offering an overnight dockage rate of .75 per foot and 10% off anything purchased in the store, including fuel. This offer is for tournament participants only. This is only a concern for people with larger boats wishing to keep their boats in the water overnight.  If you have any questions about this please email mcfrsaltwaterclassic@gmail.com
