Despite Hermaine forcing us to move the 13th Kids Fishing Tournament to a
week later, the tournament was a huge success! Holding it on the first
weekend of school gave us 45 fisherman as many were unable to attend due to
school sports and other commitments. Strong winds and a pulling tide still
yielded 25 registered catches but with no fish over 12″ we stopped the
fishing 30 minutes early and gave away all off the fishing prizes.
Then we awarded the prizes to the Raffle Ticket Winners with over 900
1. Casey Coffey – Go Pro
2. Sean Rocks – Bike (Ocean Beach)
3. Bob Castner – TV (Strathmere)
4. Brian Furey – Drones
As always hot dogs, snacks and drinks were enjoyed by all.
Once again I would like to thank everyone who helped out whether it was
donating gifts, money or helping out during the actual tournament. Even with
a smaller turn out it still takes allot of help and I want to personally
thank each of you.
This tournament’s success is thanks to each of you and all of your help. I
think Candy’s email below says it all. For the last 13 years the SFEC Kids
tournament has been a huge success and no matter how many kids I agree with
Candy that I am very proud to be a SFEC member. I enjoy working with all of
P.S. There are extra purple tournament T shirts for any kid who could not
attend. They are available FREE at Boulevard Bait and Tackle on a first
come, first serve basis!
See you all next year for number 14!!!!
