Get your rods ready for the 12th Annual Flatfishing Tournament

SEBASTIAN — The GFWC Sebastian River Junior Woman’s is planning its 12th Annual Flatsfishing Tournament to be held Saturday, September 3 from Capt’n Butchers, 1732 Indian River Drive Sebastian. The Captain’s Meeting will be held on Friday, September 2 at 6 pm, also at Capt’n Butchers.

Money raised from the tournament is used for the many projects sponsored by GFWC Sebastian River Juniors. Your financial assistance will be used for WHALE – a child safety seat occupant identification program, distributed for free at various projects such as National Night Out. Additional projects include a free community Easter Egg Hunt, Reading is Fundamental book distributions, scholarships, assistance at Wabasso School for Exceptional Children, a free Children’s Christmas Arts and Crafts Festival, and Santa’s House to name a few. These and many other projects depend on your generous support.

The tournament is open to any angler. A children’s division is open to all kids younger than 12 and is at no cost to the child. Fish that are caught and not released will be donated to our many local food pantries.
