Grouper Grapple Registration is now open! The Grouper Grapple was founded by Brian Peachey in 2013 as a means to give back to the community and show support to Combat Wounded Veterans that have served our country. The tournament itself started with just 16 boats in 2013, and has grown to 22 entries in 2014 and 35 entries in 2015. By teaming with Freedom Alliance they have been able to turn the event into an actual vehicle that provides much needed therapy for combat wounded veterans returning from service.
The Grouper Grapple and Freedom Alliance provides the veterans with transportation to and from the event, hotel accommodations, breakfast, lunch and dinner Thursday – Sunday, Back Bay fishing trips, commemorative plaques, entry into the tournament and tournament events, specialized apparel and a chance to join their brothers in arms in an atmosphere designed just for them!
