Tournament News - June 1, 2010
6th Annual Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic
Officially Cancelled

Well, it is official, due to the British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon explosion and the closure of 75,920 square miles of fishing grounds in the Gulf of Mexico by the National Marine Fisheries Service, we have been forced to cancel our 6th annual tournament. As stated in our previous newsletters, we will be offering 100% refunds for any/all pre-paid early registrants.

I want to personally thank all of our sponsors, participants, and friends that have helped us through the past 6 years create, produce, and enjoy the Cajun Canyons Billfish Classic. Our website name alone, comefishLa.com, should be indicative of our passion for both Louisiana and the hallowed fishing grounds off our precious coastline.

From here, we ask that all of you remember the families and friends that have lost loved ones during the Deepwater Horizon explosion. In closing, we hope to be back stronger than ever, we just do not know when that will be.

On a final note, today happens to be my 55th birthday; this is NOT what I envisioned as a birthday party!
 

Regards,

Steve Thomas
