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.
