Board of REALTORS® fishing tournament set for Oct. 19

By on October 10, 2018

Pre-sale tickets are still available for the tournament grand prize Yeti fishing package worth $500.

Get your fishing poles ready to raise money for local high school seniors and area disaster relief efforts. 

The Outer Banks Association of REALTORS® (OBAR) 22nd Annual Surf Fishing Tournament is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 19 at Jennette’s Pier.  The fishing boundaries encompass the beach accesses from Jennette’s Pier (MP 16.5) south to Limulus Drive (MP 20). 

Check-in begins at 6:45 a.m. and fishing ends at 3:30 p.m. with an awards ceremony immediately following.  Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.  There will also be plenty of raffle prizes provided by generous local businesses. 

Event co-Chairs Aimee Pitts of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and Shane Cook from Prime Lending are excited to announce that this year’s grand prize, which is awarded at 6:30 a.m. before tournament check-in, will be a Yeti Fishing package worth $500 donated by Prime Lending.

OBAR is still accepting registrations for teams of up to six at a rate of $200. This event has long been a fun occasion with comically named teams and community support that has helped send 129 local high school seniors to college through the association’s scholarship fund. 

Breakfast and Beach Access sponsorships are still available.  Local companies, including Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Prime Lending and Identify Yourself have already purchased the coffee, lunch, beverage, and flag sponsorships.

The tournament, which is open to the public, will also benefit The Outer Banks Association of REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund. This fund is available for anyone living in the Outer Banks who has been adversely affected by disaster like July’s flooding and Hurricane Florence.

Presale tickets for the grand prize are available now through Oct. 18.  Only 250 tickets will be sold and are $5/1 ticket or $20/5 tickets. The Yeti fishing package includes a Yeti Hopper BackFlip 24 soft sided cooler/backpack, Yeti Hopper SideKick Dry, Yeti Ice 4lb, and a Yeti Molle Zinger tool.  The winner need not be present to win.

If you have questions, would like to register for this event or want to purchase tickets for the grand prize, please contact OBAR’s Membership and Marketing Director Karen Pierce at or 252.441.4036. 

It’s time to get your fish on!
