Why would someone want to participate?

While our league does have a level of competition, the goal of our club league is to have fun and build camaraderie among MCW club members. Participants will enjoy the evening while strategizing and working together and will likely broaden the level of knowledge in boating and fishing skills through sharing of information. By participating in this league, you will likely gain new fishing partners and friends. And our league champion does win a prize.

What does the league champion win?

The Spring and Fall League Champions are recognized at our annual awards banquet in March and have their name engraved on a traveling trophy that each champion gets to hang onto until the following awards banquet. Really cool personalized keepsake plaques have also been awarded to our league champions.
