Every year the Country Club has their Labor Day events. There is the archery tournament, the fishing tournament, the children’s fishing tournament, the Bunko tournament, the swimming competitions, horseshoes, the watermelon seed spitting contest, the cupcake walk, the treasure hunt and then we wrap up with our bi-annual meeting and dinner. This year Hill was able to participate in a few of the events (the treasure hunt & children’s fishing tournament).
Here is a picture of our little first place winner of the 2012 Children’s Fishing Tournament (tied with Branson Grantham.) We are preparing him to be captain of the Ole Miss BASS team when he gets to college. It’s a sport now, it is non-violent and an injury free environment. His mother is his biggest fan. I hope one day that he can be sponsored by Oh Boy O’Berto beef jerky and Toyota Trucks to fulfill his fathers’ life- long dream of being in the fishing circuit. You think I’m kidding, but I am not. I don’t care if it sounds a little Ricky Bobby like (Talladega Nights, movie) I’m reaching for the stars here. Golf or Fishing. No harm inflicted injuries by others. (Remember, I want to keep him in a bubble.)
There was a great turn out this year and hopefully this will be the last year we have to swim at this pool! Membership voted to build a new pool down by the lake where the old tennis courts are located. We are super excited! Not sure when it will be complete – it’s anticipated sooner rather than later! Yay!
