            I would like to say thanks to all the volunteered and served at the Tugalo Baptist Association Casting for Christ Fishing Tournament.  We had an exceptional response to the tournament with 68 boats entered in the tournament.  Ken Wheeler and Rodney Kelley were the winners with a five fish limit of bass that weighed 15.99 lbs. Congratulations to Tony Hosch and Trent Cummings for Big Fish of the tournament with a 6.54 lb. bass.  The rest of the top ten are as follows:

2nd - Tony Hosch & Trent Cummings 15.03 lbs.
3rd - Trent Thomason & Stevie Thomason 14.08 lbs.
4th - Crandall Turner & Hunter Pilling 13.35 lbs.
5th - Kyle Rogers & Ricky Young 13.23 lbs.
6th - Brad Benfield & Greg Kellum 13.20 lbs.
7th - Chad Fletcher & Todd Adams 12.71 lbs.
8th - Todd Peeples & AJ Peeples 12.33 lbs.
9th - Robin Baird & John Baird 11.33 lbs.
10th - Zach Grafton & Clay Moore 11.27 lbs. 

The best news of the tournament is that one person indicated that they trusted Christ to be their Savior and eighteen others indicated that they recommitted their lives to following Christ! I am grateful to Poplar Springs for hosting our pre-tournament meeting and to Tom’s Creek Men for cooking and providing the meal.

I would also like to call your attention to the information on the front of this newsletter.  Each year our association does a wonderful job of collecting supplies for the Georgia Baptist Children’s Homes.  We have the opportunity, once again, to bless this ministry with gifts that will help them to care for “our children” that God has entrusted to their care.  I would encourage you to consider taking part in this ministry.  If your church has never participated, this year would be a great time to begin.  We will collect the items from Mother’s Day until Father’s Day and they can be delivered to the Association Office between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  Have a blessed week as you serve our Lord!
