50th Ann. of Southeastern Outdoor Press - Founders Photo

We honored Past Presidents at the 50th Anniversary
The 2014 annual meeting of the SouthEastern Outdoor Press Association or SEOPA had a slogan of 'Back Where It All Began.' That's because the inaugural SEOPA meeting was also held at Fontana, North Carolina all those years ago! A special welcome concert by bluegrass band Balsam Range kicked off the conference on a Wednesday night, before severals days of meetings and outdoor activities ensued.

Early October in Western North Carolina can sometimes mean the best of fall weather, but the temperatures remained balmy and the leaf color changes were only evident at the highest elevations. But the scenic glory of mountain lakes and vistas combines with hanging clouds and frequent precipitation still kept the outdoor communicators in a thankful mood for their Appalachian setting.
