Thank you

What an AMAZING turnout we had on Saturday, August 25th for our first annual Sarah James Fulcher Redfish Tournament! I know we broke some records yesterday because of all of you (family, friends, and fisherman). Special thanks to our cooks, David Grandy , Charles Fuchs, and Clay Gaskill. As well as Damon and Martha D Coe , Alex Davis and her wonderful parents Laurie and Jeff, Anne P Fulcher and Kelly Self, Jim Davis, Diane Davis, Kaitlyn CostinGeraldine W Gaskill, Buddy Goodwin, Steven Gray, Doodle, and Brooke Fulcher. This event would not have been possible without these folks helping in various aspects. Huge thanks go to Angie Goodwin and Heather Nelson Fuchs who worked extremely hard to stay one step ahead! We hope these girls will be by our side every year!

So many more people to thank including those who bid on silent auction items, as well as those who donated those items. Also, thank you to everyone who brought food and or desserts for our bake sale! Lastly, a bit thanks to Cedar Island Resort and Sharky’s Bar and Grill for hosting the tournament and associated events!

Clean your boats because we look forward to continuing this amazing event and tradition in 2019!
