Ladies Shoal Troll

This past weekend the OAC hosted the Ladies Shoal Troll- a tournament to benefit Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. A magnificent event with 19 boats, 68 women anglers, many youngsters, calm seas and lots of fish.
The boats started to line up at the weigh station at 1PM to be greeted by a contingent from Making Strides, the weigh master, Ken Molloy, cold beverages and a food truck from Pineapple Caper.
I think that by any standard the event was a huge success. The generosity of members and guests for such a worthy cause lifts one’s heart!
Please see results below and a few photos.

2018 Ladies Shoal Troll

By any standard, the 2018 Ladies Shoal Troll was a gigantic success!

Number of women participants: 76
Number of boats: 22
Money raised for Making Strides $17,000+
Biggest fish: 25.35 lbs
Fun & smiles: everyone

I must admit when I arrived at OAC this past winter the work on the Ladies Shoal Troll had already begun. The flyer was printed in January and I had absolutely no idea what all the hype was about. Now I know!

Let’s start with the cause: funds raised will benefit American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer ON Cape Cod. The proceeds are put to use locally- free rides to/from cancer treatment centers for patients on the Cape, helping women manage side effects of treatment, lodging at Boston Hope Lodge at no cost to CC patients -just to name a few.

An event of this size requires two basic elements: organization and execution. Special thanks to Bob Lewis and Missy McGraw for a job well done!

Please see the tournament results below as well as a few good photos.
