September 16th
Destin FWB Convention Center
Emerald Coast Big Game Fishing Club is at it again! Another great event, the Sportsman’s Ball, is happening Saturday September 16 from 6 pm-midnight at the Destin FWB Convention Center. This event is a night to bring everyone together to celebrate a great year filled with dinner, drinks and dancing, along with awarding ECBGFC’s top teams and anglers, scholarships to students of Okaloosa, Walton, and Bay County, to give back to Destin High School Fishing Class & Club, and recognize sponsors.

This year is the 2nd annual Sportsman’s Ball, with last year’s inaugural event boasting a great turnout. The event is open to the public, and tickets include entry, dinner and live entertainment. Tickets are $75 each or $700 for a table of 10 people, and must be purchased in advance.

The Centerpiece competition among all tables is a fun way for attendees to get involved. Each table is encouraged to decorate their table for a chance to win.

Slated to be another great event giving back to our community, we hope to see you there!
