2018 Couples Tourney

Tournament date: July 7, 2018

Results are here.  Congratulations to the Kramers for some nice fish.  #37 prevails.  And also to Janelle who reels in the biggest walleye of the day.

In addition, much thanks to all who participated, helped, and tossed in some money to assist with expenses for someone in need.  I know I'm speaking for Jolene when I say, "Your kindness is so much appreciated.  God gives in so many ways, often through his people.  Thank you All."
