Advanced Strategies Adventures Carp Tournament

Wild Carp Companies hosted a single day Carp tournament in May 2010 to benefit Advanced Strategies Adventures (ASA) of Syracuse, NY. ASA provides hunting and fishing excursions for individuals with disabilities and can be found online at www.advancedstrategiesadventures.org.

The event featured single anglers competing in Pro, Amateur and Kids classes and drew over 50 anglers from Central New York. The tournament was able to raise over $700 for ASA while also providing several cash and merchandise prizes for our competitors.

A special thanks goes to Karen and Duke Strache for allowing use of their private property for this event.
