Oilfield Fishing rodeo makes donations, talks future

Aug. 4, 2013

Dear Editor,

The inaugural Morgan City Oilfield Fishing Rodeo was held May 4. The MCOFR was a very successful event for the Tri-City area. Plans are in the works for the 2nd annual event in 2014.

The MCOFR board of directors met on June 25 and voted to make generous donations of $4,000 to Nicholls State University (Petroleum Services & Technology Program), $2,000 to South Central Louisiana Technical College's (Young Memorial Campus) Battlefield to Oilfield program and $500 to the Boy Scouts of America for their help and assistance during the fishing rodeo.

There were also decisions made by the board of directors to establish a MCOFR website, which will include pictures of the event, the entry form, applications and general information.

Again, we thank all of our sponsors and volunteers for the success of the 1st annual MCOFR event.
