Open to EVERYONE!! Adaptive Expeditions (AE) presents a new Charleston tradition. The Chucktown Redfish Roundup will be the first universally accessible saltwater fishing tournament anywhere in the United States. Saltwater anglers from all walks-of-life and all abilities will participate side-by-side. Charleston’s most avid Redfish anglers will be trying their best to take home the $1,000 top prize. Fishing skills will be on the line, and the more fish you catch the better your odds of taking home the cash prizes.
On the morning on Saturday, June 24, 2017, at least 40 hungry, legal size, and food-quality Redfish (a.k.a. Red Drum) will be released into Colonial Lake. Within Charleston’s Historic District, Colonial Lake is 10 acres in size and tidal influenced through connection to Charleston Harbor. Huge concrete sidewalks at water’s edge and a recent $5.6 million renovation make Colonial Lake one of the most accessible saltwater fishing venues in the USA.
Tournament anglers that catch a tagged redfish can place the tag into the fishbowl raffle-jar at tournament check-in tent. At the end of the tournament, a raffle using all recaptured tags will determine $250, $500 and $1,000 winners. Additional tournament prizes will be awarded for the longest Flounder, Spotted Sea Trout, and Blue Crab. Anglers are encouraged to keep tagged redfish on ice and take them home for dinner. These are the same redfish raised for Charleston’s most famous restaurants and are worth about $30 each. The 40 fish are a prize themselves.
Proceeds will benefit Charleston’s Paralympic Sports Club, Adaptive Expeditions (AE). AE fulfills a critical mission to use education, sport, and outdoor recreation adventures to empower individuals who have physical and sensory disabilities with technical skills, opportunities, and confidence to maintain active, independent lifestyles.
Discounted registration fee for anyone with a disabled parking hangtag, active duty military and veterans, as well as youth under 12.
The fist 100 anglers to check-in on June 24th will receive a free tournament t-shirt as well as more than $40 worth of Dicks Sporting Goods coupons and gift cards.

tutorials to teach property owners how to use the application. SIPOA is also looking at the feasibility of using license plate readers rather than barcodes for access inasmuch as the new access software has at least the theoretical capacity to track license plate data, but there are potential privacy issues and questions concerning other states’ laws (among other things) that must be addressed first.

What is the Fleming Tennis Tournament?
It began as a local Seabrook Island Tournament in the early 1980s. Since then it has grown into the premier tournament in the Southeast in both quality and competition. It attracts about 250 players from across the Southeast and beyond, including National and World Champions competing for the USTA National Championship Gold Ball Awards. It has been chosen as the “best tournament of the year” by visiting players, in part for the hospitality with which the Island welcomes the players. To learn more, click here.
The Tournament is open to all, not just Seabrookers. Everyone is encouraged to come enjoy the competition, free of charge. Whether you play tennis or not, you will be excited by the caliber of tennis exhibited on our courts. It is fun to wander from match to match, enjoy the free ice cream and beer and perhaps stop for lunch in the tent erected by the courts. Continue reading
