Philpot Lake Results: May 2, 2015
Hello all, VA West would like to thank First Baptist Church of Collinsville for hosting us and providing us an awesome dinner. Thank you George Brown and Pastor Larry Cheek for opening your church and your kitchen up to our division, we really do appreciate your partnership in our ministry.
Our message was presented by Jeff (Ace) Foldesi from Hyland Heights Baptist Church, Ace as I call him shared with us when he got saved and then shared with us a story about three other folks and how the gospel impacted there lives. This was a very moving message and really made us all think about our walk with Christ. We had one rededication and many prayer requests.
Well the team of Kenny Reynolds and Bo Grosvenor won there third tournament of this season with a weight of 15.86 lbs being anchored by a 5.21lb large mouth, which was also big fish of the tournament. The question I have for the next tournament is can these two guys be beat? Leesville Lake will prove to be a good tournament and several locals that currently fish with us could put some pressure on these two guys.
Rounding out the top seven teams is as follows:
2nd – Wayne Myers and Erice Huff – 14.29
3rd – David Martin and Kevin Simmons – 12.71
4th – Jared Sowers and Soloman Sowers – 12.50
5th – Richard (Mac) Addair and Nathan Reeves – 11.66
6th – Eric Rumley and Mark Edwards – 11.09
Just out of the money winners were Brian Lindamood and Stephen McQuire who will receive the two JB Custom rods at the next meeting at Leesville Lake.
Congratulations to all our winners.
