Football Hough at Mooresville 8-29-14

Mooresville High’s football team crushed visiting Hough 38-7 on Aug. 29 to improve to 2-0. Most folks thought it would be a close game between two of the lake area’s Class 4A teams, but Mooresville erased any drama by scoring three first-quarter touchdowns. The Blue Devils (2-0) used dominant offensive line blocking to spring running back Akease Rankin for 179 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries, and quarterback Tommy Bullock for 105 yards and a score. Hough, which slipped to 1-1, scored on a late 28-yard touchdown pass from William Coleman to Caleb White.

Rainy Symphony in the Park - Bailey Road Park

The rain didn't stop the crowds from showing up for one of the coolest annual events put on by the Town of Cornelius - Symphony in the Park. Since the event is held on City Property, no glass bottles, containers, no pets, no smoking, and no open flames are the rules - but that only creates an incredible family fun atmosphere. We didn't hang out in the rain long enough to find out if the symphony ever played - but that didn't stop the children and families from having fun playing in the rain. Photos by Patrick Nicholson.

2014 Poker Run at the Peninsula Yacht Club

The Annual Peninsula Poker run, sponsored in part by Aquesta Bank, was once again a smashing success! Poker Runs are NOT races, they are semi-scavenger hunts, and typically involve 5 different pickup locations. At each location a team picks up a "sealed poker card" - then everyone regroups (in this case at the Peninsula Yacht Club) and opens their cards to see who has the best poker hand. The winner held 4 Queens... if you're a poker player, well - you know, that's a tough hand to beat. At the end of the day it's all for a good cause and the proceeds went to benefit Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Lake Norman and Cornelius Davidson Children's development. Photos by Patrick Nicholson.
