That’s what Ralph Thomas, chair of the Trigg County Recreation Complex Board, told fellow board members at their monthly meeting, held Monday evening at the complex convention center.
Thomas said he spoke with organizer Barry Hall, who he says told him that their coon hunter organization never comes to the same place to hold the event twice in a row.
At a previous meeting, Trigg County Magistrate and Complex Board Member Larry Lawrence told the board only that the coon hunters weren’t coming back to Trigg County.
Thomas also told board members that at the next meeting they’ll be discussing the board’s constitution, and will discuss fundraising for the complex.
With only a few spelling changes, the board unanimously approved of an agreement between the recreation complex and the Trigg County School System that discusses who is in charge of what fields, and at what times.
Complex Board Member Stacy Futrell also discussed a list of needed improvements to the complex’s little league field. Everyone agreed that the improvements are necessary and beneficial.
Pennyrile Electric will take the lights from the three aluminum poles and will install them on the new wooden poles, and will also remove the aluminum poles at no cost to the complex, Thomas said.
One of the major improvements needed is to move the new outfield fence at least 200 feet away from the new home plate position, said Futrell, who added the entire field also needs to be re-seeded and the outfield needs more fill dirt.
