The fishing tournament is a Drug Awareness Event for the Elks Lodge, so each child participating receives information on staying drug-free.

This year the Elizabethton River Riders also joined in on the fun and Rookie, the mascot, handed out tickets to a baseball game to all of the families attending the fishing tournament.
