Last year’s tournament was a lot of fun, and The Sands at Harbour Beach was a great location for the weigh-in and after party. The “WAR” is about fishing, fun and a unique format of competition. The “WAR” has the typical fishing fleet competition and also includes a unique friendly competition amongst professional peers. There are three categories for the competition amongst; A) Engineers, B) Contractors and C) Vendor. See the attached flyer for more information.

We need you to register your fishing team whether you are a fisherman or not. Fun will be had by ALL. All you need is a boat and a few people to compete and have a great time while support a worthy ASHRAE cause. We also need corporate sponsors for the tournament prizes. This event is paramount to our chapter’s successfully reaching our Resource & Promotion goals.
