DMS holds two tournaments each year. We also sponsor entry for two DMS Teams to fish other area Tournaments.
Our larger event is the DMS Invitational, which is held in October every year and is open to the public.
We also have an Intra-Club tournament in November. This members-only tournament is for the most sought-after award - bragging rights!
DMS also fields two teams to fish other area tournaments. Currently, DMS sponsors a team in the AMSA Ronald Bounds Tournament, held in mid-October every year, and the Ocracoke Island Surf Fishing Tournament, usually held during the first week in May. The entry fee is provided for both tournaments, Addidtionally, the Team receives a small stipend to help offset costs incurred at the Ocracoke tournament. Teams are selected by drawing.
The Ocracoke Island Surf Fishing Tournament team drawing will be held at the Fall Feast, Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the Frankford Fire Company hall, Frankford, DE. The drawing for the AMSA Ronald Bounds Tournament team will be held at 2016 DMS Annual Dinner, held in March, 2016.
