After Friday night’s windswept thunderstorm and power loss, Saturday morning’s June 1 weather was delightfully cool and sunny for Plantation Lakes’ Annual Bass Fishing Tournament. Women, men and children fished from boats or along the lake edge until 11 a.m. All 47 participants brought non-perishable food or hygiene product donations for Help4Kids Backpack Buddies.

Russ and Priscilla Scales did a great job chairing this lake committee-hosted event.

Nicholas Dagostino won first prize with his 2-pound, 14-ounce bass. Cory Conklin won second prize with his 2-pound, 5-ounce bass. Colby Ard and Justin Lane tied for third prize with 2- pound 2-ounce catches. Kameron Payseur won fourth prize for his 1-pound, 15-ounce bass. Scott Churchwell, Robbie Leopard and Jason Weaver tied for fifth prize with 1-pound, 12-ounce catches. Wayne Culp won the final prize.

Everyone thanks Diane Colarik for transporting delicious trays of chicken, beef and rice from resident Chad McWhorter’s Logan’s Roadhouse for the post-fishing lunch inside the clubhouse. Resident Andrew Handley’s Pub and Grub provided savory chicken wings and pasta salad trays. Russ Scales’ mother Joanna helped serve. Participant Justin Lane and wife Katherine provided sheet cake. Lake committee representative Bob Sweet spoke eloquently.
