Team "Just Right" tops leader board in inaugural JMU Duke Club fundraiser

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Saturday December 12, 2009 marked the beginning of fishing tradition for local alumni & friends of James Madison University. In conjunction with the Hampton Roads Duke Club, the local fundraising arm for James Madison University Athletics, Co-Chairman Hal Yuill & Jason Murphy raised nearly $4,000 of unrestricted contributions in support of student-athlete scholarships and the JMU athletic budget.

"The event was first-class and a tremendous success.....it sets a high bar for other Duke Club chapters..." David J. Biancamano - Director of JMU Athletics Development.

Headquartered out of Chick's Oyster Bar / Marina, the event featured 18 boats and nearly 100 anglers. The weekend event featured a catered captain's meeting Friday night, a full day of fishing, dock-side weigh station party, awards banquet w/ fresh seafood dinner, and over a dozen exciting silent auction items donated by JMU & local businesses. The model of the tournament was a proven winner for both James Madison University & the lucky anglers that left with a combined $3,350 in cash payouts out at the awards banquet.
