OHH Rockies Fishing Tournament

About

The OHH Rocky Mountain Chapter is proud to launch its inaugural Fishing Tournament!

OHH Rockies started in 2014 with Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming as part of its territory. In 2018, North Dakota was added to the Rockies chapter, making oilfield workers across four states eligible for financial assistance. This event, taking place in North Dakota, extends our reach, allowing more opportunity for participation across our territory.

Calling all fishers … don’t miss out in being a part of the launch of this exciting event, raising money for our mission of helping oilfield families in crisis through no fault of their own.
