The Northeast Chapter of The Florida Irrigation Society is pleased to present this annual fund-raising tournament. We host the tournament for two reasons. The first is our commitment to raise money for charity. We support Wolfson Children’s Hospital (saving children’s lives!) and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation (promoting education and scientific research to protect and enhance our marine environments, this equates to better fishing for our anglers!) It is angler entry money, raffle money, t-shirt sales and corporate donations that enable us to give to these wonderful organizations.
The second reason is to offer a safe, fair and sporting inshore triple challenge tournament promoting environmental stewardship and community outreach by supporting charities that positively affect the health, safety and welfare of our great city.
We give great thanks to our supporters, especially our top tier sponsors: Miller Lite-Champion Brands, Rowe’s Supermarkets, FNGLA, Firehouse Subs, North Florida Irrigation Equipment, NDS, American Electrical Contracting and Strike-Zone Fishing.
Thank you for fishing Creek Wars and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
