Dew Tour Opens to Fans

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The Dew Tour kicked off its 10th anniversary season Wednesday afternoon when gates were officially opened to fans in Ocean City. Day one of the Dew Tour was mostly about practice for the athletes, but it was the first chance for the fans to check out the concourse and see what the Dew Tour has to offer.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   WBOC spoke with fans from Baltimore, Pennsylvania, and upstate New York, each saying the Dew Tour was a major part of their vacation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               "The course is different like every year.  There is a new layout.  Everything is different.  There are more competitors that come each year.  Everything is just different," said Tyler Myers, of Gilbertsville, Pa.

The Dew Tour is quickly becoming a major draw for the beach town as more and more vacationers are planning their trip to O.C. around when the Dew Tour is in town.  And even for folks unaware of the event prior to arriving in Ocean City, some said once they found out about it, they couldn't wait to get inside.

"We've seen it on TV a couple years in a row so we figured it would be kind of cool to see it in person.  See all the different tricks they do, all the cool stunts that they do that we can't do, obviously.  But, yeah we just thought we would come check it out while we were here," said Derek Vargo of Pittsburgh.

The hope in Ocean City is that all of the new Dew Tour fans that are made this year becoming returning fans come next year.
