If you like either fishing or shooting, the Hartsville Rotary Club has a pair of events that will suit you just fine!

On Saturday, Oct. 13, the Club will hold its third annual Hartsville Rotary Bass Tournament at the Defeated Creek Recreation Area on Cordell Hull Lake.

Fishers can take to the water at safe light and the tournament will run till 2 p.m. The entry fee is $30 per person, and Defeated Creek Marina will offer lunch for an additional $10.

Each boat can weight in five bass, and there will be cash prizes for both the largest bass of the day and the largest non-bass of the day.

Contestants must follow all safety rules and TWRA fishing guidelines for the lake.
