Key West Celebrity S.L.A.M.

That is slam as in Southernmost Light-Tackle Anglers Masters with host: Wade Boggs. Link Via Sport Fishing Magazine.
Scheduled Friday through Sunday, Sept. 7-9, the catch-and-release event pits participating anglers against tarpon, permit and bonefish. Releasing all three on the same day is known as a "flats grand slam."

The tournament's celebrity host is to be Major League Baseball Hall of Fame superstar Wade Boggs, lauded for his career with the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees. Other celebrity anglers include NASA space shuttle astronaut Bruce Melnick, who participated in both the Endeavor and Discovery missions.

The popular S.L.A.M. is the first in an annual Florida Keys autumn trilogy of Mercury Redbone celebrity angling challenges that raise money for the fight against cystic fibrosis.
