July Water Outing - Return to Sheppards Point

Photos provided by Bill Plese, Bill Watkins, & Lee Wierzchowski

The club July outing due to high water at all the other lakes was a return to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Saturday, July 19th and it was a hot one. The high temperature was around the 97° mark , a fairly steady breeze, and a moderately cool lake water temperature helped some.

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton again handled the cooking with help from Wally Dick, I think it got a little hotter this time. The seasoning salt & onions made the burgers better. Great job Roger and Wally. Thank You! Thanks to John Freeman for picking up the food, supplies, extra scoops, and transporting them to the outing. And Thanks again to John Hamilton for taking & storing the grill & tables and he will be bringing them to this Summer’s water outings. There were 38 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, dogs, and the outstanding food assortment brought by club members. 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 195 tokens in a 40 yards X 60 yards designated area. There were 20 member donated prizes, and 154 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes, 15 tokens for Silver quarters, and 6 tokens for Silver half dollars. When the start signal was given there were 25 water hunters frothing the water. After 1 hour+ of hunting, all but 1 Silver dime token and 1 Silver half dollar token were not recovered.

Again, one of the main reasons for this type of outing, besides the food of course, is to give non-water hunting members a chance to try their hand at it. Also, the fun and fellowship of being with people that enjoy the same hobby.

Again, if you missed this outing, you missed a great one. Don’t miss the next one!
