Oriental Rotary Tarpon Tournament July 29 – 31, 2011

It’s almost time for the Oriental Rotary Club’s 2011 Tarpon Tournament.

This will be the 19th year for the tournament that features some of the best Tarpon action north of Florida– and one of the only toumaments to be held outside of Florida on the east coast. The lower Neuse River Basin opening into the Pamlico Sound features broad waters, scenic panoramas and excellent Tarpon fishing.

Entry fees go to benefit the Rotary Scholarship Fund. Scholarships to date have been in excess of $250,000 with five scholarships awarded in 2011.

Even if you aren’t participating in the tournament, you’ll have a good time visiting Oriental to enjoy the local surroundings.
