  We Did it!!!!!!! Another Successful SSG Potts Tournament......As always this would never of happened were it not for the truly dedicated work of many of our members. Not only did Ralph and the Potts Committee members go above and beyond but many non committee members pitched in, donated the time, effort, money and enthusiasm needed to put on a successful fishing tournament/fundraiser.

AIST represented well (both in the fishing and support); we can all be proud to be associated with a team that is part of such a worthy event.

We did a good thing - take a moment to enjoy the feeling.

Ralph, thanks for leading the way this year; never an easy job to get cats or fishermen to work together..but you find a way to get it done.
