FATHER'S DAY FISHING TOURNAMENT SET FOR JUNE 8

May 29, 2003 – This year's Father's Day festivities in Frenchtown, scheduled from June 13 to 15, will kick off a week ahead of time with the Committee for the Betterment of Carnage's annual Father's Day Fishing Tournament on Sunday, June 8.
Fishing will take place from 6 a.m. to noon with anglers competing for an assortment of prizes, including a $2,000 cash purse for the biggest fish. The Gustave Quetel Fishing Center, where the weigh-in will take place, is going to "come to life," according to tournament chairwoman Gail Joseph.
Live music, food and drink – provided by the tournament's co-sponsors Coor's Light, Offshore Marine Services and Hawaiian Tropic – will be part of the revelry near the Frenchtown bayside as the competitors arrive with their catches.
The winners of this tournament, as well as the earlier held Mother's Day tournament, will be announced on Father's Day night.
"It's all a part of the big Father's day celebration," Joseph said.
Registration will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 7, at the Joseph Aubain Ball Park.
