The Coweta Community Foundation hosted its first Saturday Down South Sporting Clays and Southern Supper in 2016 at Blalock Lakes, and those who participated last year gave the event rave reviews and said they are looking forward to this year’s event, which is coming up on April 29.

Gary DeGeorge Jr. was part of the team that won first place last year. “I’ve attended many events, and Saturday Down South is one of the best I’ve been to, and by far my favorite,” he said. “The friends, the venue, the food, and all to benefit our community. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday, down South.”

Paul Kaiser was also among those attending the 2016 event and said he and his son had a great time last year.

“The food before and after the shoot was wonderful, as were the people that helped pull it all together,” Kaiser said. “The venue at Blalock Lakes is gorgeous as always. We’ll be back again this year. It’s great fun for a great cause!”

Foundation board chair Ginger Queener said the group couldn’t have been more pleased with the results last year and is looking forward to another successful event. “So many people came to us and said how much they enjoyed it. Participants and sponsors alike said they would be back this year, and our CCF team of board members, volunteers, planners, our caterer and vendors are all working hard to make sure we have another outstanding event.”
