sc Mark your calendars for the 2020 Fishing For Ford Tournament on August 15, 2020!!
2020 has been a weird year! In light of financial hardships that many people and businesses have incurred as well as the continued encouragement for social distancing, this year's tournament will be a little different. This year, our focus will be on fishing and the weigh-in and we will not be hosting the Captain's Meeting or the silent auction portion of the weigh-in.
The Weigh-In will be held at The Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park (99 Harry M. Hallman Jr. Blvd) on August 15. You will be able to find us in the gravel lot underneath the Ravenel Bridge. Fish will be weighed from 3:30-4:30 pm with tournament prizes to be awarded immediately following.
Because of the cost associated with the Captain's Meeting and in an effort to practice social distancing, we have decided not to host the Captain's Meeting this year with the hope of having this fun event return to the schedule for the 2021 tournament. While we are sad to not have the Captain's Meeting, we feel that this is both a financially and socially responsible decision.
In light of the financial hardships that many small businesses have faced this year, we will not be asking for donations for a silent auction. Instead, if you know of a small business who would like to advertise during the weigh-in, please have them email Sarah at email@example.com! If you would still like to donate to the Ford Henderson scholarship, please see the scholarship information tab!
In order to practice social distancing, we ask that you maintain your distance from other anglers as you can when standing in line for the weigh-in. We will have gloved and masked volunteers handing out food this year instead of a buffet line. If you would like to volunteer for this (or any other) position, please email Sarah firstname.lastname@example.org. Hand sanitizer will be available at various locations during the weigh-in. We also encourage masks to be worn when social distancing of 6+ feet can't be maintained.
