It’s time to start thinking about fall fishing and our upcoming DIFF tournament. The event last fall was a success for those who were able to attend. Although the weather was challenging going into the event, everything cleared during the tournament. We had over 200 entrants, however just over 100 were able to attend. The youth category was once again very successful and we look forward to having many youth participants again this year. We were able to give away most of the $10,000 in prize money and raised money for our grants and scholarships program.

As always, it takes a dedicated group of volunteers to make such an event come together so successfully. All of the Board of Directors and many other volunteers worked very hard to play many important roles. Please consider volunteering to help with this year’s event. If you are willing to volunteer to help with any aspect of the tournament, please contact the Board Of Directors at We need volunteers to help with registration, weigh-in, merchandise, and fundraising raffles.

Also, if you or your business are willing to take on a sponsorship role please let us know. There are also opportunities for important sponsorships, all of which allow the club to keep the entry fee low, fully fund the tournament without using club assets, and to maximize our fundraising efforts for our grants and scholarships. This year’s event will take place on October 8-10, 2020. Remember to get your registration in by July, 31, 2020. Hope to see you at the tournament.
