IWFA 2020 Islamorada Luncheon Postponed 

New Dates - October 18, 2020  Luncheon   *  October 19,20,21 Tournament Fishing

Your IWFA Board of Directors have unanimously voted to postpone the Annual Luncheon & Awards which was scheduled for April 19 in Islamorada to October 18, 2020 which will coincide with the annual fall BackCountry Tournament.  Unfortunately, we must cancel the Islamorada Funament which was scheduled for April 18th.  I want to personally thank everyone who was involved in planning this event and know that when we reconvene in October this event will be bigger and better than ever! 

For all of you who had registered for the April events here is some information on refunds and cancellations:

Registration Fees - We will cancel all existing registrations and process refunds for any member that previously paid.

Hotel Reservations at La Jolla - Please call the La Jolla hotel at 305-664-9213 for processing of your cancellation and refund.  Unfortunately the hotel is booked for our rescheduled date.  We will announce a new hotel once we have secured a new site.  

Guides - Please contact your guide directly to cancel your fishing reservation.

Our thanks go out to the Islamorada Fishing Club, the La Jolla Hotel and all the fishing guides for working with us durring these difficult times.  Please support these institutions and guides - they need our support more than ever.  

On a personal note, while we globally share this Pandemic crisis, I find comfort in the relationships this organization has provided me.  I hope each of you will spread a little joy by sharing your compassion with a fellow member.  Even if its just sharing a fishing story, we can live vicariously thru your experience and maybe create a little diversion durring these uncharted times.  Let's plan to celebrate our award winners and all we have to be thankful for in the fall.

Kathy Gillen, President
