Annual George Pyne Memorial Stars & Stripers Fishing Tournament - Catch & Release

MacDougalls’ in Falmouth MA

We find ourselves in uncharted, challenging, and for some families devastating times. We truly feel all the kids, parents, caregivers and partners are an extension of our Alumni Family. We hope to bring Football for YOU and our many fundraising events just as soon as we safely can. So stay tuned as we reschedule Stars & Stripers from June 13th to sometime after Labor Day.

The New England Patriots Alumni Club hosts an annual Stars & Stripers Fishing Tournament at MacDougalls’ Cape Cod Marine Service.

It’s an entire day dedicated to fishing, food, friends, and story telling with current and former New England Patriots – all while raising necessary funds for New England Patriots Alumni Club’s mission and programs.

Push off on one of the donated celebrity boats or gear up your own boat with your crew and meet us out there. Either way, you’ll be back on shore enjoying a catered raw bar accompanied by drinks, live music, and good conversations.
