To the Editor:
Now that the FWC has voted unanimously 7 to 0 to ban the snagging of Tarpon in Boca Grande Pass, there are some people I wish to thank publicly, without whom none of this would have happened.
John Heagney says in the Aug. 23, 2013 edition of the Boca Beacon, “Unlike some who would like to silence diverse opinion, we encourage all residents selected as part of the poll to answer questions and address them so that their opinions will be recorded.”
Tyler Beasley and Justin Robinson, two of our hometown boys, are on their way to Las Vegas in a few weeks to compete in the Re/MAX World Long Drive Golf Championship and they could use our help! They have put together a golf event to help fund their trip out West this Saturday, Sept. 7, starting at 3:30 p.m. at the Palms in Rotonda at 266 Rotonda Circle in Rotonda.
There will be a long drive exhibition at 3:30 p.m., followed by a scramble beginning at 4 p.m. Prizes will be awarded for the top three places, closest to the pin, and the longest drive.
