It is with much sadness that we announce that there will not be a 2016 PFC Geoffrey Morris Memorial Fishing Tournament.
We want to acknowledge and thank all those that sent their kind notes of congratulations for a wonderful tournament, but we have decided 11 years was enough.
We had quite a few fisherman that wrote us to say that “the Morris Tournament has ruined all the other tournaments because we gave so much away for free”. Well it was designed that way. We did not want the PFC Geoffrey Morris Tournament to be like any other tournament, because PFC Geoffrey Morris was not your average run of the mill son, brother or friend. He would have literally given the shirt off his back if he thought you needed it more than he did. He gave his life to defend this Country and that makes him a very special kind of patriot, deserving of only the most special and meaningful event in his memory.
The Morris family is thankful for all those that participated and contributed so much over the years to make what we believe was one of the finest and best run salmon fishing tournaments on the west side of Lake Michigan.
Thank you all for the great memories created over the past 11 years. Semper Fidelis.
P.S. Stay tuned, there might well be some other fishing and Veteran related news coming soon!
