MIASF takes over Lauderdale billfish tourney

The Marine Industries Association of South Florida will manage and produce the 44th Annual Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament.

MIASF acquired the event from The Fort Lauderdale Billfish Tournament, Inc. in 2007 and conducted the 2008 tournament under the management of US Recreational Alliance. Former event producer East Coast Eventz recently decided to relinquish promotion and production responsibilities.

MIASF board member Kitty McGowan, of Nauticom Communications, has volunteered to serve as tournament director for the Feb. 5-8 event. This year’s tournament is part of the Sailfish Pro Series, an organized association of professional sail fishing teams competing for a season-long championship.
