I'd like to send out a special thank you to the many volunteers, sponsors, and fishermen (men, women and children) who entered the fishing contest. I wonder, should it just be fishermen &
women, or fisher-persons? I digress. Weather didn't cooperate with us, at least the weather may have scared some people away.
We were lucky that the big storms seem to hit before and after each event. Aside from some wet fishing weather and a lake with fish who didn't want to be caught, the event went very well.
The photos are very deceptive because in between the thunderstorms we had some good old fashioned hot and humid Kansas Summer weather. Given that some areas received 4 to 5 inches of rain over the weekend, we were really lucky with the weather. The Lord must have been looking out for us and apparently he heard all the prayers from volunteers asking him to hold off with the storms while we completed this event.
It looks like we may repeat this event next year and our 2nd Annual KBS Ultimate Tailgate Party at the American Royal in Kansas City is being planned now. Watch for more information on both these future events.
