Bring your family and friends for some fishing fun in Jupiter, Florida on May 8-9, 2015 in honor of Richard Black at the Grand Slam KDW Fishing Tournament!

The Grand Slam Tournament Series has hosted super fun fishing tournaments in the South Florida area and this year marks its 20th anniversary. Richard Black, former owner of Grand Slam Sport Fishing Supply in Jupiter, has enthusiastically devoted his revelations to generate fishing events by bringing the local community composed in a family friendly environment to simply enjoy a day of hooking up some nice fish for fun prizes as well as give back to the supporting community.

This 20th Annual Grand Slam Fishing Tournament is devoted in the celebration of life as Richard Black passed away in October 2014 after a courageous battle with brain cancer. The Black Family is beyond inspired by his dedication to fishing, family fun and giving back, so the tradition will carry on! “We have been overwhelmed by the support for this year’s tournament. It has been incredibly touching for our family to see the outpouring of love for Richard and concern for us. We will be forever grateful for the community’s support all the while reminding us of how truly special he was.”

This year’s fishing event will be held at Riverwalk Events Plaza to celebrate the milestone and memory of the beloved Jupiter Local. The Grand Slam is proud to donate to the Coastal Conversation Association, to support the keenness of protecting our marine resources and also to The Rendina Family Foundation, which funds the Scripps Research Institute’s determinations in brain cancer research.

The event will begin on Friday, May 8, 2015 with the Captains Meeting at Riverwalk Events Plaza from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the exciting fishing day starts on Saturday May 9th from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. With two weigh in stations located at Castaways Marina in Jupiter and Sailfish Marina on Singer Island, Florida. Following will be the awards party and BBQ for all participants!
