Woodall Mountain Monument Dedication, Award Winners and 2012 Convention Site Among Highlights of 2010 Convention


The 2010 Highpointers Convention has concluded at Woodall Mountain, Mississippi. As usual it was another spectacular magical convention.

One of the biggest highlights was the dedication of new signs at the base of the mountain and a monument rock and plaque at the top which was paid for by the Highpointers Foundation. The Brown family who own the mountain were on hand. Above is a video of the event.

We will be posting a lot more photos, videos and news but here’s a quick short list of highlights.

*The Club and Foundation dedicated a new stone memorial on top of Woodall Mountain in a ceremony attended by the Browns (the family that owns the summit), the mayor Iuka and a representative for Senator Roger F. Wicker.
*Oregon was selected as the site of 2012 convention beating out a spirited nomination of California.
*Craig Noland received the Jakk Longacre prize for life long club support
*Jim Sutton received the Vin Hoeman award.
*The mayors of Muscle Shoals, Sheffield and Tuscumbia (and their respective city police departments) gathered to temporarily block off the major artery for a club visit to a tri-city point in the middle of Avalon Street.

    Wish I was there–tried to be.
    Can’t make it for this year either–I’ve already been at OH’s HP anyway!
    When I can, I plan to include a multi-state trip to get LA, ARK, MO, MS, GA, & FL’s HPs all in one trip with a stop at the home of Superman in Metropolis, IL and seeing Jimmy Carter in Plains, GA!! You can publish my e-mail(will be good to hear from you all–Jean and the Wingers?): superdave2012@cox.net
