35 four person teams enjoyed the hospitality of the USN while fishing in the 2005 Virginia Beach Anglers Club Invitational Surf Fishing Tournamnet. The tournament was held Friday and Saturday, on the beach at Dam Neck. Friday was a "Chamber of Commerce" day with light winds and smooth seas. Saturday however, was another story. North east winds at 10+15 knots and a very rough surf made for an interesting day. A tournament summary follows:
