***5th Annual Offshore Fishing Battle - Provincetown, MA - REGISTER NOW - June 22-23, 2023 - A special Norwich gathering on the water. Congrats to Dan Evans '87 and Hook'Em Dan-O for being the first Norwich boat to take home the Offshore Battle title in 2022! All event proceeds last year went to the Debra Evans '87 Memorial Scholarship

Mission Statement: The Norwich University Fins & Feathers was informally established with a single boat in 2014 by several alumni with a passion for fishing. Now it has grown into a multiple event and multi-region sportsman’s gathering that encourages participants to foster an appreciation for friendship, camaraderie, and our Norwich Values.

Events have been defined as Fins (fishing gatherings) or Feathers (hunts). It provides a gathering alternative for friends of Norwich that do not golf.

All proceed from Fins & Feathers events go to areas of need at Norwich University. 

Past Fins & Feathers Events:

  • TBD - West Coast - West Cost Fishing Bash - Dana Point, CA - The first Fins & Feathers West Coast gathering! 20+ alumni and friends gathered for a beautiful day on the water. Thank you to Colin Hoffmeister '87 for organizing a great outing. 
  • Homecoming 2022 - Saturday, September 17 - Northfield, VT - Fins & Feathers Block Party - Over 200 people came and celebrated Norwich with the Fins & Feathers crew! What an amazing gathering to educate people about the impact of Fins & Feathers on the Norwich family. Save the date for Homecoming 2023 on Saturday, September 23, 2023.
  • Monday, November 14, 2022 - Northeast - 3rd Annual Upper Parade Ground Shoot - Addieville Farm, Addieville, RI - A great outing with over 60 alumni and friends coming together to support Norwich. The proceeds from this years event will go to a Service Dog Memorial on campus to help raise awareness of Post Traumatic Stress at Norwich.
