GH-USC Tourney Recap & Thanks

Hello Everyone,

We'd like to extend our sincere thanks for your support of, and participation in, the 2010 Guy Harvey Ultimate Shark Challenge. The successes we're able to enjoy now were only made possible with all your unique contributions of talent, experience, commitment and dedication -- all in the interests of a common, but very important goal. We're proud to have had the opportunity to work with each and every one of you over the past 12 months. It's been a rewarding experience.

L-R: John Tyminski, Andy Eggebrecht, Jack Morris, Sean Paxton, Bob Hueter, Nick Whitney, Jayne Gardiner, Luke Tipple (in water). The research and production team on board the Andros Boatworks / Mote Research Vessel working together to satellite tag a 7 foot, 6 inch great hammerhead shark, while filming the procedure and streaming it all LIVE on a 40-foot screen for tournament spectators inside Mote's Immersion Cinema.

In the weeks to come, we'll be planning the next steps, which we'll look forward to sharing with you, in anticipation of the announcement of our expanded plans for 2011. Although, the competitive portion of the tournament is over, we are, in many ways, just beginning so be sure and stay tuned to the website for highlight video, lots of photos and plenty of behind-the-scenes updates.

L-R Front: Bob Hueter, Capt. Mike Manis, Capt. Jay Withers, Zack Gerzeny, Sean Paxton, Capt. Wayne Nichols, Brooks Paxton II, Capt. Robert Moore. L-R Back: Thomas Burt, David McQuade, Capt. Jimmy Willis, Capt. Bucky Dennis, William Deluna, Richard Proceszyn.

Congratulations, once again, to all our teams, the championship contendors and 1st place anglers of Team Pole Dancer. To all our observers, research personnel, sponsors, host locations, supporters and volunteers go our sincere appreciation for your important role in making this all possible. Extra special thanks to our families, and last, but not least, we'd like to extend our gratitude to all the journalists, reporters, press and media that shared our story with the world.

All the best to you and yours ... Cheers & Tight Lines,
Sean Paxton
