The Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company (RHVFC) is proud and excited to host The Guardian of the Pearl Rockfish Tournament, a three-day event that features a two-day tournament

Situated on the eastern shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Rock Hall is a charming village known as The Pearl of the Chesapeake. The tournament promotes heritage, tourism, and fishing for the town while raising funds for the RHVFC which serves it and surrounding communities.

All tournament activity for these dates is contingent on final authorization from Maryland Department of Natural Resources and the rules and regulations they set for the Striped Bass 2023 season in the Chesapeake Bay and its’ tributaries.



Being in a rural community, RHVFC struggles to find resources for funding our nonprofit, volunteer, lifesaving organization. Your participation in and sponsorship of the tournament will specifically help us accomplish the following:

• Maintain and improve the RHVFC building and property

• Update live-saving apparatus to meet new standards

• Replace essential fire and rescue tools

• Outfit our firefighter volunteers with the proper safety gear

This hallmark event is very important to the RHVFC and the Rock Hall community. It helps us promote local businesses and our unique, time-honored history, and ensures that the RHVFC can continue its mission to protect and serve the citizens of Rock Hall and surrounding communities. We hope we can count on your support.
