Texas Boat World and Fort Hood MWR Present Fishin For Freedom II Tournament

Posted: 2/7/2006

Texas Boat World and Fort Hood MWR are proud to host our second annual military appreciation event, Fishin’ For Freedom II, in honor of our soldiers and their families who have given so much for Freedom. The event will take place May 19th and 20th, 2006 in the heart of Belton Lake Outdoor Recreation Area (BLORA).

The fishing tournament will feature the largest family event within a 65-mile radius of the Central Texas community. Fishin’ For Freedom II will offer fun for the entire family and expects a draw of at least 10,000 of Bell County’s 239,000 residents. We’ll have two days of fishing and family fun including a concert by Tracy Lawrence and THREE Triton boat giveaways!

Tracy Lawrence’s concert will be on May 19. Tickets for the concert are $20 each with proceeds benefiting military children that have lost a parent in the war. At the concert, we’ll have a drawing to give away a Triton Tr-186 with a Mercury 150 EFI.

On May 20 we will raffle off a Tr-186 with a Mercury 150 Optimax with all proceeds also going to the military child that has lost a parent in the war. Raffle tickets are now available at Texas Boat World (or you can call Texas Boat World at (254) 699 – 9151 to find a ticket location near you).

Texas Boat World, Triton and Mercury Marine will be donating a Tr-200 with a 200 hp Optimax to the Triton owner with the best tournament weight.
