The 2018 Veterans Day Fishing Tournament is in the books. We started off with a 23 degree blastoff and ended with temps around 50 degrees. No rain, no wind, no snow and sunny. 80 boats (a new record for us) came out to compete. 22 Marine, 20 Army, 17 Navy, 8 Air Force, 2 Coast Guard, 1 National Guard Veterans and active duty teamed up with 86 Supporter / Patriots. Great fun, comradery, food, prizes, etc. Silence of the Hams started everyone off with breakfast to go and also BBQ after the weigh in. Close to $10,000 in cash and prizes were awarded as well as $3865 in payout money. This years Veteran Appreciation Award was given to Danny Gomez, Jr. Many, many donors and volunteers help make this event happen each year and I thank each and every one. Until next year, make thanking a Veteran an “everyday” occurence.
PRE-REGISTRATION FOR THE 2018 TOURNAMENT WILL BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2018.
