About our tournament: Douglas Graham Drennan II was an avid outdoorsman, who was actively involved in Coastal Conservation Association as an Executive Committee Member, State Board Member and Delta Chapter President from 2010 until his untimely death in 2014.
Douglas was also actively involved in the McGehee Dads’ Club from its inception in 2010 and was a vocal proponent of the Dads’ Club hosting a fishing rodeo.  The Douglas Drennan Memorial Fishing Rodeo is the realization of Douglas’ efforts to get kids fishing with their families.
