The 1st JP Griffon Memorial Fishing Tournament was held in Port Mansfield only a few months after we tragically lost JP in 1988. The tournament started with 7 boats and 29 anglers made up of JP's close friends and family. The first Tournament spawned enough cash to award one $500 scholarship and the JP Griffon Memorial Foundation (a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization) was soon formed to manage the scholarship goals of the Tournament. Today the Tournament has grown to near 400 annual participants, in 3 Divisions and now awards approximately $20,000.00 annually in college scholarships to deserving Friendswood area students. The Tournament is proud to be a "Bragging Rights and Trophies" only tournament with a great group of anglers and hometown Friendswood area sponsors, partnered up with the local Port Mansfield businesses, fishing guides and the PM Chamber of Commerce to put on one of the largest private in-shore tournaments on the Texas Gulf Coast. Welcome and HAVE FUN!
