No Sancocho Shootout Results

No Sancocho Shootout at Casa Vieja Lodge released 217 sailfish, 1 striped marlin, and 222 sancochos.

I just returned from Casa Vieja Lodge in Guatemala, where we fished in the "No Sancocho" tournament, a unique event which raises money for the local primary school, Santa Cecilia. In this tournament, every time an angler misses a bite and gets back only the head of the bait (a sancocho), he or she has to donate $20 to the school. It was an awesome event, all for a good cause! We raised about $5,000 and Cummins Marine matched that, so the school got a nice payday, and we all had a great time. - John Brownlee, Editor in Chief The 2015 No Sancocho Shootout was held April 16-18 at Casa Vieja Lodge and in three days, seven boats released 217 sailfish, 1 striped marlin, and 222 SANCOCHOS for a total of $4,440 ($20/per sancocho). Prior to the tournament, Cummins Engines announced they would match the dollar amount of total sancochos. "One of Cummins' main priorities is to invest in the communities in which we live and work. It's a big part of who we are and what we do," said Dave Crompton, President of Cummins Engines Business Unit. Team Club Nautico de Guatemala matched their own personal sancochos, which brought the total amount raised to an amazing $10,000!
