Pecos Valley Baptist Association
Sportsman's Gathering of
Southeastern New Mexico 2014
The sixth annual event for Pecos Valley sportsmen is in the books as a great SUCCESS! The Gathering took place on August 23, 2014 at First Baptist Church, Artesia. Knots were learned to entice the fish while fly fishing, camouflage ParaCording bracelets were spotted, elk burgers were delicious, a five pound trout "hung out," a mountain lion eyed everyone, a turkey call was heard, the chuck wagon crew cooked a yummy meal over hot coals, kiddos loved casting into a pool, a trailer full of poached wildlife saddened, and CenterPoint Archery was the place to be for the young people. Popular musician Jim Hamblen blessed and entertained with great music, follwed by speaker Bryan Houser as he shared his passion for African Safari hunts and the Lord with the 350 present. With many prizes won, come lots of smiles and cheers. If you missed this year's event, or if you attended and enjoyed it, we will have another Sportsman's Gathering in 2015!. Look forward to seeing you then!
