2018 DARE Tournament Enjoyed by Youngsters

The annual OPSO D.A.R.E. Tournament was held Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018. Trophies were awarded in each age division and one for overall big fish.  Several nice door prizes were also given away to the winners in each category.

Each year, the tournament participation has increased. Sheriff Russell stated “the tournament is held further familiarize the kids and their families with the OPSO D.A.R.E. Program and Ouachita Parish Deputies. It also promotes the opportunity for families to enjoy a fishing trip with their children and then follow up with family oriented activities during the weigh-in.”

Sheriff Russell would like to once again thank the deputies that are assigned to the D.A.R.E. program, the deputies that volunteered their time to help with the tournament, the sponsors that contributed generously to help cover costs  and especially the parents and kids that participated in the event.  We look forward to hosting next year’s event and invite you to participate.
