    Default 2018 VDFT Re-Cap

    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.

    Great job again this year Larry! I feel everyone has an appreciation for those who served and thus we all feel proud to participate and see this event grow. Along with that, this is such a great event because of the folks who work all year behind the scenes to make it happen, thank you to the Martin Family!

    Thank you again Larry for all you and the Martin family do for this event. Bar none it is always the best. Like to have stayed longer and was able to see you before I left but you and the family were busy. Can't wait to do it again next year.
