The PVF Roundtable announced a number of initiatives to round out the 2018 calendar year.

The Roundtable’s annual Trout Blast tournament will be held Oct. 11-12 in Matagorda, Texas. Last year’s Trout Blast had a record-breaking turnout with more than 370 attendees for dinner and fishing.The event raised more than $50,000 for industrial college scholarship and Roundtable officials say they are on track to beat that number in 2018.

“With dinner and registration on Oct. 11 and the fishing tournament on Oct. 12 you are sure to have a fun-filled event where you will socialize with industry friends and provide scholarship funds to those young adults entering our industry,” PVF Roundtable board member Margie Dalton said.
