The fifth annual Amos G. West Memorial Spot Fish Tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24.
The tournament honors Amos West who grew up on the water in Achilles. He died in 2018 after a career as a teacher, coach and administrator in Hampton City Schools.
The tournament raises funds to support Gloucester High students pursuing higher education. Last year it provided eight scholarships of $2,000 each, a release said.
The entry fee is $150 donation per boat. Each paid boat receives four tickets for prize drawings, with additional tickets at $5 each.
Cash prizes are awarded for six largest fish total weight ($1,000 first place, $500 second) and $250 each to the man, woman, and child 12 and under with the largest single spot.
