Southeast Alabama Gas District is asking local residents “to get a line and a pole” and participate in their annual fishing tournament benefiting Relay for Life.

“Fishing for a Cure” will be held March 31, at Point A Park.

Cost is $90 per boat, and there is an optional $10 big fish per boat.

Proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society’s Covington County Relay for Life.

First place will receive $600 cash; second place, $250; third place, $150; and big fish winner will receive $120.

Winning are based on a 20-boat minimum, and fourth place and under will be entered in a door prize drawing.

The $2 park fee will be waived and a light breakfast and lunch will be provided for paid participants.

Additionally, there will be a concession stand for lunch.

Those who register by March 12 will receive a T-shirt.

Those interested in participating should contact Reba Gant at 488-0543 or call or stop by the SEAGD.
