A Lot of FUN ! Sign up and have a great day fishing! All ages are included!

John Coonrod, at the 31st Homer Sloan fishing tournament.

Multi-Species Fishing Tournament

    The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a multi-species fishing tournament on Table Rock Lake, Saturday September 30, 2017. This is a fun tournament designed for all fishing abilities and ages. Entrants are encouraged to fish with family members or friends. A multi-species tournament is a different type of event intended to attract anglers with interest in the many different species of game fish available on Table Rock Lake.

    The take-off and “measure-in” will be held at Kings River Marina south of Shell Knob. Take-off is at 8:00 am and the measure-in will be at the marina at 2:00 pm. Once registered, two-member teams can fish from boats anywhere on Table Rock. The entry fee is $40.00 per team. There is also an optional 100% payback longest fish pot. Cash prizes will be awarded for the first and second place teams. There will be a drawing after the measure-in for several valuable prizes donated by area businesses.

    Species included in the tournament are black bass, white bass, walleye, catfish, crappie and panfish. There is a limited number of fish that can be measured for each species. Winners will be determined by the total length of fish presented at the measure-in. There will be a special award for any team presenting a legal fish from each of the six specie categories.

    Registration forms are available at the Shell Knob Chamber office, at area businesses and www.shellknob.com. All tournament rules are included on the registration form.

    What might win this tournament- one big catfish, some nice bass, or several panfish? The only way to know is to enter and fish for everything Table Rock has to offer. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the “measure-in” at Kings River Marina on Saturday September 30 at 2:00 pm.

News from the Harvest Garden at the Central Community United Methodist Church written by Betty Ragland

Fall is in the air and you are invited to attend the Fall De’Cor Sale and Open House on Oct. 7th from 10am to 3pm  Corn stalk bundles, pumpkins, and much more will be available.  While there, take time to tour the garden and enjoy free refreshments.  The garden is located on the west side of the church.

The garden is an outreach ministry involving the community, connecting Shell Knob residents with the ability to grow fresh food and sharing the harvest with those in need of healthier diets.  By the end of the growing season the garden will have produced approximately 850 pounds of produce with 650 pounds being donated to the Alliance of Churches Food Pantry, the Senior Center, and to His House Foundation.

Two different youth groups have been involved.  The local Kid’s Night Out program planted in one of the individual beds and helped plant pumpkins in a straw bale garden and sweet potatoes in the in-ground garden.  In July, thirteen youth from Hood United Methodist Church came to Shell Knob on a mission trip.  They spent two days in the garden.  Their projects included building the last five individual beds, creating an entrance path, mowing, watering, and harvesting.

Your financial support will result in larger food production and educational opportunities not only for our community, but extending out beyond our borders.  Gardener applications will be available for the 2018 growing season.
