Linda Cornwall, daughter of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament’s “Bump” Styron, will be Rodney Kemp’s guest in the History Museum’s auditorium this Friday. To start things up, their discussion will involve Ms. Cornwall’s yearlong pursuit (and discovery of) a movie that was created in the early 1960s, and one that shows the tournament in its infancy. Just 30 minutes long, “MARLIN ON THE MIND” highlights the tournament’s activities around 1962.

During the second part of the program, the actual film will be shown, with running commentary provided throughout by both Cornwall and Kemp.  A CD of the movie will be available for sale after the program.

For those wishing to partake in a buffet lunch & the presentation (lunch, beverage and taxes included): $16 / CCHS members $13.
