Take A Soldier Fishing This Weekend

This weekend, the military will be honored in a unique event, held for the first time in East Texas.

It's called Take A Soldier Fishing.

"We thought we would like to take the opportunity to thank our soldiers," said John Holland with the Lindale B.A.S.S. Club. "Thank all the men and women that fight for us on daily basis and allow them a fun day on the water. Give them the opportunity to come out and enjoy some of the freedoms we receive on a daily basis."

Take A Soldier Fishing will be held this Saturday, September 27, from 6:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at the Lake Fork Marina.

Lodging, dinner on Friday (fish fry), and lunch Saturday will be provided for all military participants. This event is free to service members with a current military I.D. Prizes will be awarded for big bass over the slot, big bass under the slot, big stringer of bass, smallest bass, biggest crappie, and biggest catfish.

Organizers say they have a full list of soldiers signed up, but they still need a handful of boaters.

If you'd like to help call (903) 216-4578 or email: LindaleBassClub@aol.com

    Moody Magic, a term coined by the Abilene Christian faithful to describe a supposed mystical aura around Moody Coliseum that gives the Wildcats a winning edge, is something the Stephen F. Austin men's basketball team fell victim to a season ago. Wednesday night, the 'Jacks cast a spell of their own - one of the defensive variety - to make sure their intrastate rivals wouldn't obtain a second-straight win in the series.
