July 2022

As life around the Pier slowly returns to normal, familiar faces, events and activities are also coming back.

In June, our Education Department welcomed campers and had them out catching fish and surfing waves immediately. Some will go soundside for crabbing and exploration on paddleboards.

Another indicator of normalcy, the annual Fritz Boyden Memorial Youth Fishing Tournament was back at Jennette’s and the other ocean fishing piers – Avalon, Nags Head and Outer Banks mid-June.

For the first time, the luncheon and awards ceremony were held in Oceanview Hall where 400 hot dogs were served to hungry anglers from ages 4 to 16, their parents and club volunteers.

The Nags Head Surf Fishing Club also based operations at the Pier during its huge 480 angler invitational tournament last October.

Another important returning competition is the VIP Fishing Tournament Tuesday, Oct. 18. The event attracts more than 350 visually impaired persons, 130 sighted guests and 300 volunteers to the Outer Banks each year for the tournament and other events.

Another homegrown community event, the OBX Skim Jam, will be held on our south beach Saturday and Sunday, July 16-17. And of course, a half dozen happy couples have booked Oceanview Hall for their July wedding receptions.
