Rodman Results: May 12, 2012
Best Western Inn East Palatka welcomed us for the Friday evening meeting and dinner, and I must say that Pastor Tim Hall and his helpers from Cross Road Community Church, East Palatka, FL, once again served a delicious dinner. The food was absolutely wonderful as was Pastor Hall’s awesome message from Ezekiel 47: 1 – 14. He talked about the water, and fishermen, something we can certainly identify with. Thank You Pastor Tim Hall!
We finished the meeting by giving away some nice prizes: a $25 Gift Certificate to R & J Tackle, Green Cove Springs, FL, two $10 Gift Certificates to Charlie’s Fishin’ Hole, Hollister, FL, and a $25 Gift Certificate to Governors Creek Marine, Green Cove Springs, FL.
For our 4th tournament of the season, we were blessed with a beautiful day that had us dealing with wind on Rodman Reservoir, Kenwood Landing.
