3rd Annual Wilder’s Scooters & Shooters for Hooters

Want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that showed up to this years Wilder’s Scooters & Shooters for Hooters poker run. Had  a great turn out with over fifty bikes participating in the poker run and close to 250 people in attendance.

A lot of hard work went into this event and I would like to thank my cousin Charlie and his wife Nikki Fuqua for putting this all together.


 There was live music all day courtesy of some great local bands that performed for the event. The day started out with the Lynnette and Steve Smalley performing followed by the Dave Liles Band and finishing out the day with Never Again, who put on one hell of a show.

2016 Cast Away Fishing Derby

Held our first Pass Port to Fishing Program today.. Turned out to be pretty successful with 31 kids showing up and participating. We had to have it inside due to the bad weather but I had a blast. Luckily the weather cooperated just long enough that we was able to go out and do some fishing for about an hour before it started raining again. Id like to thank MCI Employee’s Activity Committee for providing the funds to buy the fishing rods and food for today’s activities.

I would like to thank Jake Brewer, Garret Haines and Joe Kessler for helping out. They each ran a station during the event and it wouldnt have been possible without their help. Also a big thanks to Sequel Wellman for helping get the Certificates done and handed out. Also a big thanks to Eric Wylie and Darell Starcher for getting the fishing pond cleaned up and ready for us to fish. I hope I didnt forget anyone and hope to host another event sometime here in the near future.
