VI Game Fishing Club’s Open Kids Fishing Tournament Postponed Until Fall

Organizers have postponed until this fall the July Open Kids Tournament, originally set for Saturday, July 24, at IGY’s American Yacht Harbor (AYH) Marina in Red Hook, St. Thomas.

“We’ve been watching the situation with the sargassum weed for the past couple of weeks. Unfortunately, even if we removed all the seaweed, it would still take time for the oxygen levels of the water and fish populations to return. For this reason, and out of an abundance of caution due to a variety of factors, we felt it best to postpone this popular annual event until this fall,” said Kelvin Bailey Jr., president of the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club’s Board of Directors.

Masks are required. Participation is open to kids 14 years of age and under, and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Registration is free and only online at: www.vigfc.com

The catch will be officially weighed by professionals from the Department of Planning and Natural Resource’s Fish & Wildlife Division. Kids are encouraged to be conservation conscious and to release their catch.

Prizes will be awarded in two age groups: up to age 6 and ages 7 to 14, and will include trophies crafted by My Brother’s Workshop, gift certificates, cash and much more donated by community businesses.

The event is being sponsored by the VIGFC, AYH, Neptune Fishing Supplies, Island Time Pub, Coral World Ocean Park, St. Thomas Swimming Association, and Guardian Insurance.

Cute as a button. Darling little princess. Please protect them

Make sure they Mask 😷 up.

Loving and trusting someone is such a risk and i don't wish any woman to be in the same shoes as i was sometime back when I caught my husband red-handed with my own best friend in our own bed. I couldn't believe it when I saw it and my heart started beating so fast and felt like my body is shaking then I ran straight to my elder sister's house. I cried so much and my sister left me to cry and told me it would help ease the pain I was feeling. Then she sat me down and asked me if I still love my husband and I told her yes of course, and she told me that we all learn and grow through mistakes and no one is perfect and told me that if I wanted my man back I should fight for him and never trust friends again.My sister told me to contact profisma+27783320386 who had helped her husband with financial issues and told me he will help me bring my man back. It took me weeks to think about it because we come from a strong religious background but things worsened because I could not even concentrate at work and i got fired, and after that, i remembered what my sister had told me about consulting with him. That's when I contacted him and told everything, he listened, and told me that he will solve all my problems in 48 hrs. Since it was my first time doing this, i could not believe his words just like that but i had to wait until the time he had promised. I was asked to buy materials to help me which I did, we begun the prayer and results were delivered in three days. My husband called me and asked me where I was, and he came straight to me and confessed how my best friend seduced him, and he was sorry to fall into her trap and showed me all the messages my best friend was sending to him and promised never to see her again and promised to love me and only me. That evening he took me to a romantic dinner, Since prophet isma helped me, I got a better paying job than the previous one, my husband is back to the old man I used to know and he loves me so much and does everything to see that am happy. Thank you so much prophet, your spells indeed work. If you're going through struggles, you can text him on WhatsApp +27783320386 or call him
