We are quickly approaching that time of year again. The Stafford Township PBA 297 9th Annual Striped Bass tournament date has been set. November 16th and 17th at St Mary’s of the Pines 100 Bishop Ave in Stafford Township NJ. As most of you who fished with us last year know our tournament was first class. From food to door prizes. We would like to thank all those who participated, especially our sponsors. Without you none of this is possible. Last years Tournament was a great success and raised over $25,000 dollars for scholarships. We thank those sponsors who contributed to the add book last year and hope this notice will give our sponsors ample time to contribute and hopefully entice other sponsors to participate.
