Operation North State: Fulfilling A Recreational Request from North Carolina’s Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans Down East - Take Us Fishing!
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (January 19, 2016) - Operation North State (ONS), its supporters and volunteers are calling on North Carolina’s People, Places, Products and Pride (especially in the Edenton/Albemarle Sound Community) to help support the 1st Annual Edenton Top Shelf Fishin’ Festival. The Festival will be held Saturday, April 2nd (rain or shine) at Bayside Marina & Grill, 802 W. Queen St., Edenton, NC 27932. A dinner will follow the 3PM weigh-in at America Legion Post 40.


Operation North State and the Edenton Community will be hosting 50 Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans to a great day of fishing and fellowship. According to Operational North State’s Founder/Volunteer, Terry Snyder, “the event is being held at the request of the Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans that have fished in ONS’ Top Shelf Fishin’ Festivals the past three years. They have requested that ONS consider hosting additional Fishin’ Festivals throughout the state especially “down-east”. We are expanding to seven Festivals in 2016; we are most honored that the Edenton Community has pulled together to host the Festival. The Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans are so excited to have the opportunity to go fishing with some of the state’s premier/tournament fishermen” Snyder said. “Likewise, our fishing hosts/boaters tell us how honored they are to be part of the Festival and have the opportunity to “give-back”.


The 1st Annual Edenton Top Shelf Fishin’ Festival is FREE to Wounded Warriors and Disabled Veterans; and, their respective caregivers may join them on the boats too if needed. There is no entry fee for our fishing hosts/boaters. “Operation North State is grateful to these expert fishermen for providing their time, expertise and equipment” Snyder said.
