Shepard Point Water Outing Report

Sheppard Point Outing Saturday, June 28th

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Sunday, June 28th was a good one. Weather was good for this time of year with the high temperature was around the 90° mark with a strong wind most of the day, and a refreshing cool lake water temperature.

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Again Roger Eaton handled the cooking. Good job Roger and Thank You!

And Thanks to John (JJ) Freeman for transporting the club’s grill and bringing the tables.

There were 27 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, hot dogs, & hot links supplied by the club and the outstanding food assortment brought by club members. There were 36 hamburgers, 24 hot dogs, & 24 hot links consumed, Thanks to all those bringing the great side dishes and desserts. If you went away hungry at this outing, again it was your own fault.

After the big feed there were scattered as evenly as possible 215 tokens in a 30 yards X 50 yards designated area. There were 20 tokens for member donated prizes, and 195 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes. When the start signal was given there were 15 water hunters frothing the water.

And once again, one of the main reasons for this type of outing, besides the food of course, is also, the fun and fellowship of being with people that enjoy the same hobby. And to give non-water hunting members a chance to try their hand at it. There are always extra water detectors & scoops available for use, so if you have not tried water hunting come on out & try it, you might find you like it.

If you missed this outing, you missed a good one. Don’t miss the next one!
