The Pabst Blue Ribbon Northeast Tourney proudly announces its support of the New England Lions Clubs’ Visually Impaired Fishing Tournaments. Annual proceeds from the PBR Northeast Tourney will further enhance the Lions Clubs’ efforts to improve the lives of the visually impaired public and veterans throughout the region.

With 2014 comes event growth across the region for the Lions Clubs. Rhode Island will be hosting its seventh annual tournament, which projects to be the largest to date. The Connecticut tournament will see major expansion and Massachusetts is set to host its inaugural tournament. The increased popularity ensures that the Northeast will be well represented at the annual National Visually Impaired Tournament held on North Carolina’s Outer Banks. A New England Championship is also on the horizon for 2015.
