The first of four events, the Cape Lookout Shootout Tournament Series was held July 17-18 at the BoatHouse in Beaufort, NC.
The beneficiary of the series is Military Appreciation Day, who receives the proceeds from fish sales, and any other donations made from the participants.

MAD volunteers prepared and served some delicious barbecue and all the fixins for the Captain’s meeting on Friday July 17th. Hobo Junction as they are known did a fantastic job as usual, and there were numerous full bellies and compliments.

Last year, each winning boat donated $1,000 of thier winnings on the spot!!

Saturday was tournament day and several MAD volunteers helped to dock the boats and 4 special guests from the Single Marines Program helped to gut the fish as they came in.
The tradition continues, the winning boat this year was “Mom Said No” and Captain Harvey Hoopes donated $1,000 of their winnings to MAD!

Southport, NC Thanks to our local Chamber of Commerce (for providing a float) and our hard working volunteers, Southport MAD honored our nation and troops in the annual 4th of July parade. For those not familiar with this event, Southport is the site of the official state celebration and hosts many state dignitaries, including the Governor. In addition to MAD volunteers, we were honored to have 3 Naval Personnel from the Naval Operational Support Center, Wilmington, NC ride along.
