Thompson Fishing Rodeo Raises $10,500 for Thompson Foundation

Sunshine and fish were plenty at the 11th Annual Thompson Fishing Rodeo. More than 190 people registered for this year's rodeo and fished the waters off of Dauphin Island competing for Master and Lady Angler titles. More than 28 prizes were awarded, with the Master Angler title going to Angler Rob Hurt from north Alabama. The Lady Angler title was earned by Theresa Manning, who flew in from Australia for the festivities. 

In addition to fishing and family-friendly fun, the rodeo raised $10,500 (a record amount) for the Thompson Foundation, the charitable arm of Thompson Engineering. We extend a big thank you to our sponsors and volunteers for making this event a successful fundraiser!
