Everyone enjoyed a wonderful weekend on our tenth annual camping trip at Fort De Soto. The weather got a little windy late in the afternoon but the windiness didn’t stay long and was nothing like last year. We had great weather this year.
Saturday morning started out with our fishing tournament. We had about 13 people pick up a tournament packet but only six caught fish. Linda won for most species. She caught a pinfish, flounder, catfish, grunt and a 15-inch trout. Marie caught four fish: a pinfish, catfish and two grunts. Cindy won for longest fish with her 19 1/4-inch catfish. She also caught two trout. Carolyn came in second with longest fish, a 15 3/4-inch trout, her only catch. Kim caught two trout. The longest was 12 1/4 inches. Melissa caught a 14-inch ladyfish.
Here is a picture as the sun rose over the campground on Saturday morning:

The other activity on Saturday was the second annual scavenger hunt. Using a camera, tablet or smart-phone, participants hunted for at least 25 items on a list as well as a bonus item worth five points. All items are spread out throughout the three loops of the campground. Here are some ladies on the hunt for items on the list:
We had five or six individuals/groups get the bonus points, which was finding a garbage can with a particular number. They all tied and at our dinner, birthday girl Cindy drew the winning name out of a hat. Congrats to Jan!
It would not be a Fort De Soto camping trip without a raccoon!
Saturday night we all gathered together in one site for the traditional group photo and dinner. This year our theme was disco. Vonnie, Maura and others did a great job with the decorations. Thanks to Vonnie for making everyone a pair of earrings. And thanks to those of you who dressed in costume. We couldn’t recognize some of you! Everyone enjoyed the ribs, wings and all the other good food.
Some ladies extended the weekend by camping out Sunday night. It was another great camping trip. Looking forward to next year.
