Curwensville Lake Results: Jun 30, 2012
The first Legacy event for the Pennsylvania division got underway Friday night at a pavilion at Irwin Park, just minutes from Curwensville lake.
Veteran Team member, Dan Peterman and a few friends from his church’s outdoor ministry group, took care of all the food and drinks for the evening. They prepared hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill, providing a great outdoor picnic atmosphere for all. A big thanks to the New Life Outdoor Ministry, from the New Life Alliance Church in East Freedom. And a special thanks to Dan and helpers, Jacob Dunning, Tracy Jelliff, and Seth Wilson for all your efforts. Fellow Team series member Chris Lanager also brought his family to the meeting as well to lend a hand wherever needed.
Dan was on double duty for the evening, as he also stepped in as our special speaker for the evening. Dan is no stranger to sharing the Gospel with our group, as he has done it several times with both our Team group and Legacy group in the past.
Dan’s message for the night was a reminder to not get caught up in the “always doing” things to please God, but reminded us that all that is great, and we should be doing things for God, but to slow down and remember that God also wants us to remember what all He has already done for us, and even though God doesn’t “need” us for anything, as He has created everything, He really “wants” us ! He wants us to know Him, by the only way we can, which is through a personal relationship with His son, Jesus.
Thanks again Dan for sharing with us. 2 people at the meeting made the decision to recommit to follow Christ in all areas of their lives.
The next morning, 11 teams were on their way at safe light, to search for a limit. As the weigh station was just getting finished up being all set up, the king of Curwensville, Dave Kindleberger and his son Jaron were at the docks getting ready to weigh. Dave was to be getting married to his long time Team Series fishing partner, Erica, in only a few hours, however, he had to do his best to retain his crown from last year as champion at Curwensville. And that’s just what he and Jaron did.
As the scales closed, Dave and Jaron bested the field again, with a solid bag of largemouth weighing 11.66 lbs. Jeff Wagner and Clint Rudy were hot on his heels with another great bag for summertime in Curwensville with 10.14 lbs to secure 2nd place. TJ Bush and James Ellis took home third place honors with 10.09 lbs. Mike Wagner (pap) and grandson Collin Willard also had a nice bag with 9.02 lbs, to nab 4th place. Current points leader in the team series, Mark Rice and Aaron Domanick took fifth place with 8.31 lbs and rounding out the top 6 places was Dan Peterman and Seth Wilson with 5.78 lbs.
Another great event to be part of. I will never get tired of seeing the smiles and hearing the “one that got away” stories from these kids. They have a way of finding fun in everything about the day…….the kids are doing the teaching I believe !!!
Thanks to all the adults for taking the time to take these youngsters out. Thanks to all the kids for all the smiles and laughs. Thanks to Chris Lanager,Patti Wilson and Dan Peterman for all your help with this event.
Our next Legacy event will be at Sayers Dam on July 28th.
