Sayers Dam Results: Jun 23, 2012
Our second event of the season got underway at Sayers Dam, AKA Bald Eagle State Park, this past weekend. With 60 team members and family representing 31 teams in attendance at our Friday night meeting held at Pavilion #4 at the Park.
Our speaker for the evening was team member Dave Kindleberger. Dave brought to our attention a couple instances of how seemingly impossible circumstances of adversity are no match for a strong faith in an awesome God. Determination and faith, can overcome even the most seemingly unsurpassable odds. Dave ended with telling us all about the extraordinary protein cells in our bodies, called Laminin, that hold everything about us together. This microscopic protein in our bodies is like the rebar in concrete, it holds everything together. Under an electron microscope, we can see that this protein is in the shape of a cross!
Colossians 1:17 says “ He is before all things, and in Him, all things hold together.”
Thanks Dave for sharing this amazing information. Five people rededicated their lives to serving the Lord.
The next morning, all 31 teams were underway at safe light. With temperatures reaching the lower to mid 80’s, and what seemed like an unusual abundance of other boaters on the water, our teams set out to search for a limit of bass to bring to the scales.
As the scales closed later in the day, it would be the team of Reese and Reese taking home the biggest payday. Josh used his legal sub card, and had his brother Shawn fill in for his dad at this event. They found a sack of 5 weighing 11.48 lbs to take home first place honors. Second place went to the team of Tom Belinda and Dan Peterman, with 9.69 lbs and second big bass for the day. Third went to Pat Naugle and Russ Kalp with 9.61 lbs. Mark and Jacob Rice took 4th place and the points lead with 8.54 lbs. Jim and George Holencik grabbed the 5th place spot with 8.35 lbs, and rounding out the paying positions was Dave Kindleberger and Erica Reed with 7.17 lbs for 6th place. Tom Sanker and Chuck Mattern had the big bass for the day at 3.78 lbs.
There were 89 bass brought to the scales.
A side notes to tag along. Our first tournament at Sayers, 5 years ago, we had 13 boats. Today, we had 31.
A few thank you’s.
Thanks Bill Reese for helping out with the pictures at the weigh in.
If you didn’t hear about the sailboat flipping over on Friday, well one did. Two or our anglers quickly made their way over and performed the rescue. Chris Porter ( my brother) and Bob Reichner pulled out an injured woman and the man and took them to shore.
Our next tournament will be July 14th at Shenango.
