TUESDAY - Jun 8, 2010

Clarksville Missouri Regional


Held June 5th was great success.

The weather was hot and the chili was too.

Butchwax and the Hollywoods performed in the Clarksville Riverfront Park. We watched the towboats and barges along with the trains.What a site Lock and Dam 24 in the background with highest point on the Mississippi looking over the river. What a setting to see. The Artisans in town had shops full of hand made items and even our Trophies were made by them. We pride ourselves in that fact
