The tournament is cancelled but there will be a pot luck and possibly dive gear swap meet according to a FB post a few weeks ago.

Adam, he’s only concerned about the raffle, he has no chance of getting a scallop.

Tino told me that liability issues were the reason he couldn't continue the competition officially, but he still wants to continue the spirit of the event.

Same place, same time, no waivers to sign. More like a gathering and not an official event. But still a big feast Saturday.

Is that right Tino?

Most of us have better odds of winning the raffle since we cant spend every divable day of the month scouting for a 9" scallop.

In all your year of diving, have you ever seen a 9” scallop?

here is a true trophy scallop

Erik Owen displaying his 10 5/8" rock scallop.  This scallop shell is the largest one ever recorded. Besides the size, what makes this so unique is the quality of the shell.

I think this is my biggest, maybe second biggest. No scouting required.

Ive never seen one over 8" with a shell being so clean, ive pulled a handfull of 8.25s with my biggest at 8.5 and they all had pourous shells.
I wonder how it tasted because all my bigger scallops were chewey. I personaly find 7" to be the perfect size for eating.
