The Trash Tournament
The Trash Tournament actually starts on July 1st!
Welcome to the Tidewater Kayak Angler Annual Trash Tournament. An event run like a fishing tournament, but instead of submitting fish, you will submit your catch of trash. This is a FREE EVENT. This year, we're partnering with iAngler Tournament Systems in providing a unique and fun way to get outside and help clean our coastal environments. There are plenty of cool prizes to be given away. Each bag of trash equals one raffle entry. The more trash photos you submit, the greater your chances of winning gift cards and other great prizes! Ready, GO!
We also hold an in person clean up at Owl's Creek on Sunday July 19th 8am-12-pm. Lunch will be provided by the club. Raffle drawings will be held at lunch.
