Cox receives Sportsman of the Year Award

CROSSVILLE — The Fairfield Glade Sportsman Club held its 25th wild game dinner for more than 120 club members and guests at Scarlett’s Catering Hall on Peavine Road on March 23.

The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the seventh Sportsman of the Year award for 2012 to Doug Cox of Speedwell, TN,  by club president Dave Hohler.

This award was instituted seven years ago to recognize club members who have not only made unique contributions to the club, but have done so over an extended period of club membership. 

Doug Cox joined the club as one of 32 charter members on the day the club was founded on July 27, 1987. Working at that time as a sales representative for Glade Realty and tied in with his close association with Fairfield Communities Inc., he was instrumental in writing many of the club’s founding documents and the leasing agreement with Fairfield Communities.

He also authored the club’s constitution and generally took care of all the legal work during the club’s formative years. He served as vice-president under president Joe Puryear from 1987-1989 and then as president from 1990-1994.

He retired from active club work in 1995, but still retains his charter membership to this day. Although now living over 100 miles away in Speedwell, (near LaFollette), Cox returns every year for the annual wild game dinner to visit with many of the old club members. He was chosen for this award by a vote of the club’s board of directors. 

Dave Hohler briefly commented in his “state of the club address” on several pertinent club items including the club’s recent jump in membership to over 600 members, the completion of the club’s move of all shooting amenities from the old club grounds to the Shorty Barnes Road complex and the construction of a DRY-FIRE building to house a new and innovative virtual shotgun training facility. Also discussed were the expanded use of the pistol and rifle ranges.

Members and guests were treated to a wide variety of wild game including dishes made from venison, elk, antelope, buffalo, wild boar, wild turkey, rabbit, pheasant, dove and alligator, all complemented by side dishes from Scarlett’s including mashed potatoes, vegetable, salad, rolls, dessert and drinks. Special thanks to Pete Brennan who coordinated the kind and amount of the wild game and all the club members that prepared those dishes.

For those “hesitant about consuming wild game," a slow cooked, glazed ham was available so nobody went home hungry. 

Door prizes were handed out along with a 50/50 drawing to complete the evening.

  • The truth about driver distance

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
