Shell Key West Challenge

Blaylock Oil supports the Shell Key West Challenge

Blaylock Oil supports the Shell Key West ChallengeSince 1989, an avid group of anglers has fished the Shell Key West Challenge for trophies and bragging rights. The tournament brings together Shell executives, jobbers, employees, and corporate sponsors for three days of fun, relaxation, and heated competition in the waters surrounding the Florida Keys. In the Gulfstream, anglers score points by catching marlin, sailfish, dolphin, wahoo, tuna, amberjack, and bonito. Along the reefs they fish for barracuda, mackerel, shark, grouper, snapper, and cobia. And with light tackle they pursue tarpon and permit. No matter who ends up catching the most fish and scoring the most points, the big winner is the Diabetes Research Institute, which received a $110,000 donation from the Shell Key West Challenge last year.

The 20th Annual Shell Key West Challenge fishing tournament, a fundraiser for the Diabetes Research Institute, took place in May/June of 2008 in the waters off Key West. More than 140 anglers competed for bragging rights and the knowledge that their involvement will help fund the search for a cure for diabetes.

“We’ve been impressed with the work that the Diabetes Research Institute does in its laboratories at the University of Miami School of Medicine” states Crystal Blaylock-Sanchez. “If funding from the Shell Key West Challenge can help them find a cure for diabetes, nothing would make us happier.”
