All that was followed with our annual Chinese Gift Exchange. Wishing Everyone A Merry Christmas and A Wonderful New Year.
"The 2015 Corn Hole Championship again goes to Brenda Clegg and Steve Merritt. Seems they cannot be dethroned. Many have tried but failed, and, they even had the disadvantage of greater distance between the boards. Janice and Bill Grants son just happened to have a tape measure with him and made the game legal. I bet Brenda's arm was sore on Sunday. 33 feet apart is the rule for the holes. Maybe next year we should have a prize for the best dessert. Wow! We had a lot of them and all were superb. (good too) To those of you that haven't made it to the chili cook off you are missing an afternoon/evening of good food and desserts not to mention friends. Put the 2nd Saturday in November on your calendar right now for next year. That will be NOVEMBER 12, 2016. Paul and I would like to those of you who for coming early and setting up all the tables, not to mention bringing them." Thank you!........Jenny
Breakfast, Covered bridge, produce, concrete and more food were just a part of this year's Poker Run. On Saturday July 25th we started out with breakfast at the Clegg's in Nabb then onto the run, going thru the serene back roads of Scott County into Scottsburg stopping at the Scott County Museum, Beechwood Park for a photo op of the Covered Bridge. From there we proceeded on the back roads to Clark County stopping at B&C Punkins -N- More to pick up our goodie bags of tomatoes and corn. Our next stop was the Concrete Lady's in Otisco where she let us pick out a garden stone to take home with us. Continuing on our route we headed toward New Washington stopping first at the Old New Market School for our 6th card draw and finally reaching our final stop at the 1894 Lodge Restaurant for a late lunch and our final card draw. Our poker winners this year were James McGuirk 1st place, Bill & Janet Grant 2nd place and Brandon & Amy Grant 3rd. This year question winner was Bill, Janet and Sara Grant with a score of 68 out of 120 points, they got their meal paid for winning. Thanks for everyone who went on the run, if you missed it you missed a fun time. Next year's run is already being planned, hope to see you there.
