shaping up

Everything is starting to fall in place in the “new” newsroom. The NEW Blog newsletter is taking form but we still need our fans to get signed up. Costa announced its cool contributions. This week’s episode is sure to give you chills. Let’s go now!

Made in the shades
Costa caught everyone’s attention with the ad campaign last year that featured sculptures of tarpon, billfish and bass hand built from their own sunglass parts. Costa announced that two of these sculptures have been donated to worthy organizations. The tarpon piece can now be seen on display at the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) in Dania Beach, Florida. The blue marlin sculpture was donated to The Billfish Foundation (TBF) which plans to have the fish on display in its booth at the Miami Boat Show in February.

AF is making some changes for 2012 and we need your help! You might have noticed a slightly different look to the format last week as we are converting over to a blog style newsletter. Now, with three ways to get signed up, we are on a campaign to make sure no Mogan Maniac gets left behind. Getting signed up is easy! Just click this link for the AF Mogan Blog and enter your email address. We’ve included the link in the email notifications we’re in the process of sending out (check your SPAM folder!). You can also sign up at at the top of the page where it says “Enter Email for AF Newsletter.” Don’t get left out of the conversion or you could miss out on Mogan Prize Pack giveaways! Congratulations to Terri Johansson – she’s this week’s winner.

Mogan of the Week
That’s not Austin Powers but he’s got the mojo! Our longtime Mogan Maniac, Austin Rouse has been going crazy on the fish in the No Motor Zone. Austin made it difficult to choose between his 39-inch redfish and this gator trout. Good stuff, Austin!
