Dear 2018 Deep Sea Roundup Sponsors;

The Deep Sea Roundup is the oldest fishing tournament on the Gulf Coast and this year's tournament will be the 83rd year. We host this tournament to create fishing spirit throughout Texas and this year's tournament is dedicated to helping Port Aransas recover from Hurricane Harvey.  Its participants come from Austin, San Antonio, and all around the Coastal Bend along with some folks from neighboring states.  We would like your organization to be part of this spirit and celebration. We have six levels of sponsorship outlined below. 

Platinum Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $10,000 and above

Diamond Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $7,500 - $9,999

Gold Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $5,000 - $7,499

Nickle Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $2,500 - $4,999

Silver Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $1,000 - $2,499

Bronze Sponsor Deep Sea Roundup Tournament Sponsor $500 - $999

The Port Aransas Boatmen support the Port Aransas community and the vast majority of the monies derived from the Deep Sea Roundup go for scholarships to graduating seniors in Port Aransas and the surrounding Coastal Bend Area.  Fishing is an excellent way to appreciate and care for the environment we have been given, enjoy the natural beauty of the area and is a great way for families and friends to bond with shared interests.

We look forward to your participation and thank you for your interest and support.  By supporting the Deep Sea Roundup you are helping the recovery of Port Aransas. This year we have a Deep Sea Roundup Facebook page and have joined several Texas Coastal Bend Fishing groups. We will be announcing tournament news and sponsors through this medium as well as on our Deep Sea Roundup website.   Please contact me should you have any questions.

Best regards, 

Frankie Eicholz, Chairperson
