    Well, the Lakeland Fish and Dive Expo is returning to Off the Wall Adventures (2055 Shepherd Rd. Lakeland, FL 33811) on Saturday, February 7, 2009. This year we have an even bigger lineup than last year, as well as some different booth vendors. Like last year, we will be selling hamburgers, hot dogs and sodas, with ALL proceeds going to CCA. CCA-Polk will be on site to sign up any potential new members and also handle some of our raffles that will be going on, which will also benefit CCA. This is family friendly atmosphere designed to bring outdoor enthusiasts together and have a great time. Start time will be 8:30 am. The first seminar will begin at 9:00 am. Seminars will last approximately 50 minutes. The last seminar is scheduled to begin at 4:00 pm. The expo will last until 5:30-6:00ish pm. We will be having seminars going on both in the classroom and on the pool deck. Here is this year's OFFICIAL lineup.......
