Steve Summer and Jason Thomas win Tucker Town with 27.98 lbs and bring home $3,287
Rock Outdoors, our local Bass Cat dealer, hosted the Friday Night event again at their beautiful facility. They are not only a boat dealership but, an outdoor lifestyle retailer as well. We appreciate their hospitality and the BBQ dinner was great. Everyone enjoyed shopping the store and checking out the new Bass Cat boats.
The speaker for the meeting was Pastor Mike Lambert of Uwharrie Baptist Church. The message was awesome!!! Mike talk about being on God’s team and how everyone gets rewarded for each time you make a cast (sharing the Gospel) as compared with the fishing teams where you have to make the catch and only a few are rewarded. Bottom line there are only two teams, God’s and Satan’s.
