 Club member Dan Hardwick was the event organizer for the club. Dan was assisted by club members John Kline, Wayne Kiser, Vaughn Thomas, Penny Rucker and Craig Murphy.  The event ran from 6 P.M. to 10 P.M. on a chilly brisk evening.  A team from Columbus were impressed with the program, the warm clubhouse and our friendly country hospitality.  Look forward to participating in the next Sunset Coon Shoot on January 17, 2015
