MAD 2018 Charleston, SC Event Summary
The Charleston Chapter of Military Appreciation Day, Inc. would like to thank the 39 captains who put 118 Active Duty Troops on the water on a beautiful October 13th morning, and made our event a huge success. Boat captains left from different ramps around Charleston County, and Pier captains hosted Troops at the Folly Beach Pier. Adventure Harbor Tours used their largest pontoon boat to transport 6 Surf captains and 17 Troops to fish the beach on Morris Island.
Friday evening at the Captains Meeting, each Captain received a “MAD Charleston Chapter Commemorative Coin” and a chance to win 8 American flags flown in a local C-17 delivering supplies to a US base in Afghanistan. We had awesome dinner provided by Southern Que-N-Stew.
Saturday evening after dinner, the troops were asked to stand, and their captains presented them with a MAD Commemorative Coin. This was followed by a delicious BBQ dinner provided by the Pioneer Smokers, and music afterward by local band “Fat Alice”.
We had door prizes for the Troops: eight sets of cornhole boards (they were all signed by the captains and crew Friday night), twenty rod and reel combos, and a new Traxxas Slash RC truck.
We would like to thank Carolina Composites for their continued support, and Rivers Edge Marina for hosting our event again. Thanks to Mark Hood and Lawson Construction for building the cornhole boards, and Hadrell’s Point who made the rod and reel give-away possible. Thank you also to Adventure Harbor Tours, SIAC, SOAS Capital, Cranston Engineering Group, and all of our other donors for your continued support.
