Well, the Lakeland Fish and Dive Expo is returning for its 3rd year to Off the Wall Adventures (2055 Shepherd Rd. Lakeland, FL 33811) on Saturday, February 6, 2010. 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 (Coastal Conservation Association). We will also be selling chicken wings courtesy of Pinch-a-Penny Pools/Spas and their Big Green Egg Cookers, again with 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. The 2009 Hell’s Bay Waterman that is being raffled off by CCA will be on display and raffle tickets for the skiff are $25 each. 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 pm. We will be having seminars going on both in the classroom and on the pool deck. Here is this year's OFFICIAL lineup.......

Yes. But we will be drawing raffles every hour on the hour. We will assess what goes when once we get all of the donation items from the vendors compiled. The raffles won't start until 10 AM....ish.
