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

MacDougalls’ Cape Cod Marine Services, Falmouth MA

The New England Patriots Alumni Club hosted its 10th annual Stars & Stripers Fishing Tournament on June 8. It was an entire day dedicated to fishing, food, friends, and hanging with current and former New England Patriots. Following the tournament, we hosted a raw bar which was accompanied by drinks, live music, and good conversations.

A special thank you to our host, MacDougalls’ Cape Cod Marine Service, all 22 boat captains and their crew, our boat sponsors, as well as in kind donors. We seriously could not do this event without them.
