Registration time is 8am-8:30amCT, with a shotgun start at 9amCT, Saturday, September 6, 2014. We are very excited to partner with the folks at The Pines and hope that the central location will be convenient to all who want to participate.

Pat Proffitt and Company will be cooking again this year and continues our tradition of feeding every participant enough pork shoulder and chicken, with traditional sides. No participant will go hungry. The meal is provided to participants, and it's all you care to eat. Registration is $60/person, $240 per team.

Proceeds of the event go to fight drug abuse. Approximately $65,000 since our first tournament in November, 2000 has been given to people and projects who are helping to fight the war against drug abuse in our society in various ways. That is Fred's legacy through this tournament.

Some of our recipients are: Kentucky Sheriffs' Ranch, KSP Trooper Island, Caleb Capps Memorial Baseball Scholarship, Sprocket Proffitt Memorial Scholarship, Project Graduation, Catch a Rainbow Fishing Derby, Run With All Your Hart, Little League Baseball and Softball, and others, in addition to college scholarships.
