John and Susan Mills come out on top on Lake Hartwell
Big Water Marina and Campground hosted the South Carolina Couples tournament on Lake Hartwell in a big way. Approximately ten days prior to our tournament, BWM felt the wrath of Mother Nature with damage from high water and 12 hours of 40 mph winds and rain. Their fuel dock and courtesy dock both received substantial damage. The courtesy dock had to be removed, repaired and reinstalled prior to our blast off. We’d like to thank Darlene and the guys at BWM for their commitment to ensuring the facilities were ready for our event. Not only did they make the necessary repairs in time for our event, but they also took excellent care of our anglers. They had coffee, propane heaters, and golf carts for our use and even provided pizza at weigh in. We couldn’t have asked for a better host.
