If you did not hear about it or see it we held in partnership with SUGARLANDS DISTILLING COMPANY the first "BATTLE of GATLINBURG 2017" Trout Tournament on September 30th in Gatlinburg, TN. This was in conjunction with the Sugarlands MountainFest, a 4 day outdoors festival mixing music, bike racing, our trout tournament.


After months of planning this celebration of all things Gatlinburg, it was a great success. Hats off to Brent Thompson, Tyler Hatcher and Sarah Loebner of SUGARLANDS DISTILLING COMPANY and their entire crew. It was a terrific experience as they helped us for months to make sure we pulled it off to great success.
