2012 SEWE - Friday at Sporting Village

Dock Dogs competition in full flight on Friday
Brittlebank Park on the peninsula of Charleston is bordered by the Ashley River and plays host to the sporting village, full of vendors that promote the outdoors. What a great spot to spend the day under sunny skies with friends who share a like-minded spirit. The dock docks competition began on Friday and continues all three days until the finals on Sunday. Corporate sponsors like John Deere and Chevrolet are the anchor booths at Brittlebank, but the South Carolina vendors tend to shine bright in this setting. Tideline Outfitters brings their new oyster shell camo pattern for everyone to see. Hugh McLaurin of Big Lake Duck Calls came to blow his custom duck calls, which continue to garner new fans each year. Bird dog enthusiasts gathered to view the live quail at the Quail Unlimited booth headed by Tim Long. Scott Whitaker of CCA was present, and friends Mark Castlow and Jimbo Meador of Dragon Fly Boatworks from Florida were on hand to display their flats skiffs and their new paddleboards and custom dry boxes. Retriever demos, casting demos, wood carvers rounded out the sporting village offerings while a country band played music for everyone.
