2D/3D archery event planned


Pecan Plantation’s archery/air gun range is a busy place, and two Saturdays ago found archers participating in a Hunger Games tournament.

Rubber chicken targets paid the price of being aimed at by such capable marksmen. Congratulations to winners Charles Palmer, compound bow, Jim Leggett, cross bow and Ron Croft, bare bow.

Archery Association President Sy Rosenfeld says the day brought a good turnout, and almost all of the scores were within range of each other, thus causing a sudden death shoot out in the compound bow class.

Sy also recognizes Chef Rodney who fed the hungry crowd well on cheese stuffed hot dogs.

The next archery event comes Feb. 22 with a 2D/3D tournament beginning at 10 a.m. The event, which will consist of 18 targets total, is open to all Pecan members and guests.

Tournament fee is $5, and participants sign up is at the Pecan Activities Center (PAC): 817-573-7952.

“Fun with Flight” will take place Feb. 22 at the PAC from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. with instructor Jim Cotter. The class costs $10 and is limited to eight students ages 8 to 14 who are aviation enthusiasts.

This adventure will include flight instruction on a simulator, flights of gliders the students will build in class (and take home with them), and a tour of a hanger to view airplanes and a helicopter. Sign up at the PAC.


Friends of Pooch Plantation (FOPP) will host a meet and greet play day at Pooch Plantation Feb. 22 at 2 p.m.

All dogs and owners are welcome.


Thursday brings the February gathering of the Pecan Plantation Woman’s Club (PPWC). Social time begins at 9:30 a.m. with President Rosemary Lee calling the business meeting to order at 10.

Ladies will welcome Sean Mitchell, formerly of Granbury Live, who will deliver a rock and roll musical program sure to have ladies tapping their toes and if not up dancing, at least wanting to.

Lunch will immediately follow the program, and reservations are necessary and due by noon Monday: 817-573-2641.

Door prize tickets and table centerpieces consisting of various sized plates filled with candy and desserts will also be available for purchase. Come early to shop.

The PPWC meets the third Thursday of each month September through May, and although in the middle of a club year, new members are welcome to this philanthropic group which promotes art and friendship in the Pecan community.


Many folks make Pecan run smoothly each day, and at a recent recognition event, some exceptional Pecan employees were saluted.
