“We had 18 foursomes, 72 players and 94 sportsmen participate, and I think everyone had a good time,” said Cape Fear chapter president Guy Gardner. “We’ll do this again in May or June 2009.”
The Cape Fear QDMA chapter recently earned its second straight national QDMA Chapter of the Year award and also won an award for having the organization’s top youth program, “QDM for Kids.”
At the tournament, four teams tied for first with a score of 53 (18-under par). A card match determined the winning group of Ray, George and Bob Womble and Robbie Currin. The James Gay family (James, Lyn, Meagan Gay and Tate Rogers) was second followed by the Harnett County Hooligans team of John Holland, Craven and Adrienne Millican and Ashley Gilliam.
The N.C. Sportsman Magazine team of Craig Holt, Bill Aldridge, John Dawson and Ernie York also shot 53.
Dawson of Burlington won two closest-to-the-pin awards while York, Craven Milligan and Bob Richardson won one each. Long-drive contest winners were Mark McCreery and Taryn Munroe. Ryan Richardson won the putting contest.
The event also featured a silent auction and raffle items. Funds will support an 8,500-acre outdoor classroom with handicap access, woodsmanship programs for youths, an urban deer-management program, and a three-day wildlife-education event. All programs are free and open to the public.

No one, including Howell really thought he had a shot.
“I didn’t expect to have the chance to win after the first day, and especially after yesterday,” Howell said.
But he whacked the bass today, putting 29 pounds, 2 ounces on the scales to seal the 2014 Bassmaster Classic championship and pocketing the $300,000 first-place prize.">Howell changes fishing area, claims 2014 Bassmaster Classic

“I went to cranking rocks this afternoon,” Cherry said.
That strategy yielded quick results, and the Bassmaster Elite Series pro built a 17-pound, 7 ounce stringer.
But it wasn’t enough to make the cut: Cherry wrapped up the tournament in 27th place, only two places out of the cut.">Cherry improves weight, misses Bassmaster Classic cut

“The fish are in some places I haven’t seen them in five to seven years,” the Florida pro said. “Every time I fish a tournament here this time of year, I make a point to check these places — and the fish haven’t been there in years.”">Tharp leads after first day of Bassmaster Classic

“I had one pretty good day, and then I had two not-so-good ones,” Cherry said after leaving the weigh-in stage. “But after Wednesday I thought I was going to kill it;it was that good.”
Unfortunately, he was thrown a curve ball when a severe storm system rolled through the area and dumped inches of rain and kicked up high winds — a combination that turned all of Cherry’s spots to mud pits.">Cherry has tough day on Bassmaster Classic’s first day
