Ducks Unlimited is back in Humphreys County!

Thanks to the efforts of Tennessee Valley Committee Chairman Bobby Allison, District Chairman Will Gurton and the great group of DU volunteers in and around New Johnsonville, Tennessee, that community enjoyed a very successful DU event on Saturday, August 19. That’s the first DU event there in nearly 11 years.

Not only did the Tennessee Valley Committee have a great event, but they did it in style. The event was sold out in less than two weeks. What a way to start, with all tickets sold and ticket money in the bank a month before the event! Plus, 36 of that sell-out crowd were sponsors!
 
Also among the crowd were the New Johnsonville mayor and the newly elected Humphreys County Sheriff and his family.

Many who responded late to the invitations had to be told that there were just no more seats available. Bobby and his committee had to pull another rabbit out of the hat on the day of the event, when they learned without warning that the facility had double booked the property. The committee had only an hour and a half to set up their event. But they got it done, and their event attendees never knew there was a problem. That’s real performance under pressure!

The committee is already planning their event for next year…in a much larger facility, to accommodate a much larger crowd!

Congratulations to Chairman Bobby Allison and his great New Johnsonville committee on a job very well done.
