The second of the Florida winter circuit series, the Florida Gulf Coast wrapped over the weekend with a whopping 11,500 entries across all divisions and all classes. In addition, there were more than 2,900 NSBA entries over the four shows that made up the Florida Gold and Gulf Coast circuits.
New this year, both circuits offered $25,000 in jackpot classes. The monies were paid after the circuit champion and reserve circuit champion were awarded. The Florida Gulf Coast took place January 2-5 in Tampa, Florida on the heels of a highly successful Florida Gold Coast that brought in the new year.
