TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Sports Commission is pleased to announce the Florida Antique Tackle Collectors (FATC) Fall Show will be coming to Tampa October 7th through 9th.
FATC is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the collection and preservation of antique angling memorabilia, as well as promoting the history of tackle in the state of Florida. The organization holds four exhibitions each year throughout the state of Florida. Their Tampa show next month will mark their third show in the 2011 calendar year; the previous two occurring in February in Daytona and in June in St. Augustine.
The average exhibition features approximately 60-75 tables; however, the Tampa event is shaping up to be significantly larger, with more than 100 tables anticipated. Attendees will travel to Tampa from throughout Florida, as well as out-of-state with visitors from as far as North Carolina, to participate in the Fall Show.
