(Not-So-) Wordless Wednesday: TAMU RPTS Stories - Somerville Weekend, April 1976

Near the end of the 1976 Spring semester, the Recreation and Parks (RP) Club at Texas A&M University had a campout at Yegua Creek Park on nearby Lake Somerville.  A bunch of us pitched tents at a group site and stayed the weekend of April 9-11.

A highlight of the weekend was when faculty member and soon-to-be Dr. Jim Stribling (who earned his masters in recreation resource development in 1969 and his doctorate in 1976) stopped by our peninsula in his fishing boat and dropped off a number of white bass he'd just caught.  Some of the guys prepped them for baking over the fire for dinner that night.

At right, RP Club Vice-President Mark Gray does some of the prep work on the fish.

Above is the article from a late April 1976 issue of the Park It Here RP Club newsletter about the Somerville weekend.
