The event, which drew more than 60 teams from across Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana, was a fundraiser for Lamar State College Port Arthur with proceeds providing scholarships, as well as purchasing and maintaining training equipment, along with other campus needs.

The event spanned two days with a Captain’s Dinner, sponsored by Casa Ole’, taking place Friday night featuring fajitas, auctions and plenty of camaraderie to go around. Motiva and Golden Pass served as the title sponsors for the event.
