LOS BARRILES - Lynn Rose 2010 East Cape Classic

2010 East Cape Classic

October 20 - 24, 2010

Once again, we return to the peaceful little village of Los Barriles and our Tournament Headquarters (Hotel Palmas de Cortez) located on the Sea of Cortez.Over the past few decades, this amazing resort (our home away from home) has become known as one of the premier vacation and big-game fishing spots in the world. It consistently produces huge numbers of blue, black, and striped marlin, sailfish, dorado, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, roosterfish, and more. Thousand pound billfish have been known to prowl submarine canyons and drop-offs just a few miles offshore. Congratulations to the Van Wormer family for creating such a beautiful hotel and a sincere thank you for making us so welcome.

A few years ago, we decided to use funds generated by this event to build a park for the children of Los Barriles. With the help of Cha Cha Van Wormer, we were able to dedicate the park during the 2000 East Cape Classic. This year, we will continue with our multi-year plan to build a children's learning center. The center will be open after school and provide instruction in subjects including computer programming, dance, music, arts and crafts, etc..

Lastly, I would like to extend a giant "thank you" to our staff members. They are an essential part of this event and help make the tournament an enjoyable experience. Dave Clement, Jerre Glasgow, Tom Marquez, Stan Wright, Dave Ryan, John Armstrong, Chucky & Bobby Van Wormer, Herman, Chuy, and Alberto plus the many other hosts from Palmas and Playa.
