Message from the GM (June 2019)
Well the summer months are here, and The Tournament season has kicked off, I would like to thank everyone for your understanding during our club closures for these tournaments. This is the time of year, when bonefish, tarpon and dolphin fishing are at their best.
Our new parking area is nearly complete and will offer additional convenient parking in walking distance. On behalf of the membership and the Board of Directors, I wanted to thank IFC Board Member Roger Young and his crew from Islamorada Brick & Outdoors for a great job on our new parking area. The lot looks great and will be ready for use when we complete the final layout. Please remember to pull all the way forward when parking at the club, and put you name placard on your dashboard.
I would like to encourage all members to make your dinner reservations a minimum of 24 to 48 hours in advance. Members wishing to make arrangements for a private party or special event should contact me at the Club.
