Our annual big event, the Lake Lure Hunt was Saturday, October 24.We had 23 members who hunted and 35 people for the hot dog cookout. Everyone seemed to have a great time.Randy said "Thank you to all who gave donations of coins and prizes, who brought the good food and drinks, and who helped with set- up and close-up for the event."We especially appreciate that Tyrone Phillips can arrange for this great site for our club every year and devote time and energy to planting coins on the Friday before the hunt.
