11th Annual YakAttack Benefit Tournament
The 11th Annual YakAttack Tournament benefiting Heroes on the Water and Project Healing Waters will take place May 17th and 18th, 2019 at the Cedar Crest Conference Center at Twin Lakes State Park in Green Bay, Virginia. Registration opens on January 13th at 7:00 PM EST, and due to the way that tournaments have sold out in the past (the last one sold out in three hours) anglers who have participated in 5 or more Annual YakAttack Tournaments and the winner of each division including the Slam from the 2018 event will get 24 hours early access to purchase their entry before it opens on Jan 13th. Those anglers will be contacted by YakAttack when the time arises.
The primary focus of the event is to raise funds for wounded veterans, so prizes for winning are limited to bragging rights and trophies; however, there is a benefit raffle in which participants can win kayaks, coolers, and more. Last year, 177 anglers participated event and between registration fees and tickets over $22,000 was raised for Heroes on the Water and Project Healing Waters.
