THE Saipan Fishermen's Association and its community outreach program on Saturday surprised “Deer Meat for Dinner” host Rob Arrington with a replica of the trophy made for the 36th Saipan International Fishing Tournament at the Minachom Atdao pavilion where Arrington was presenting another donation to the SFA.

"I'd like to thank Rob for hosting a tournament over on Rota and  I'd like to thank him for showcasing and promoting the CNMI in a way that has never been done before,” said SFA vice president Tony Scragg. “And so with that, we have a small token of appreciation from the SFA," he added as he presented Arrington with the replica of a hand carved tournament trophy made of Micronesian wood.  It is normally given to the tournament winner and only two such trophies were made this year.

“We chose the yellowfin tuna based on one of your videos,” Scragg told Arrington, referring to the trophy design.

Scragg then invited Arrington to join the tournament next year. “Absolutely,” Arrington replied. “I have some pretty big plans for fishing tournaments here and on Rota.”

Arrington earlier donated $1,000 to the SFA’s Tasi to Table youth program. He also donated  $1,000 for the 36th fishing tournament raffle draw, which Greg Camacho won.

On Saturday, Arrington presented the check to Camacho. “I love fishing tournaments and I love…the camaraderie…. Thank you so much for believing in ‘Deer Meat for Dinner.’ We came out here and wanted to tell the world about the CNMI. Even though you are small on the map, you are huge in my heart. I will be back.”
