FHYC's Annual Striper Tournament
The Fox Hill Yacht Club hosts an annual week-end Striper Fishing Tournament in June which brings out over a hundred fisherman from all age groups. It draws men, women and children of all ages, each hoping to land “The Big One”.
The event is only possible with the generous cash and prize donations made by many local businesses.
A portion of the proceeds are donated to local charities, such as the Friendship Club for educationally challenged adults, as well as supporting our own scholarship fund.
The tournament ends with a great barbecue which includes music, cash prizes, many raffle prizes, trophies, and a special Perennial Trophy. The Richard O. Holt Perennial Trophy is awarded each year to the child with the biggest catch from both days of fishing the tournament. The award is donated by, and in honor of, Richard Holt, of Holt Manufacturing, to promote the joys of fishing among young people.
