Grand prize winner Randy Bales was up at their campsite when the drawing took place. His wife Debby Jenkins accepted the prize for him and decided to pull a practical joke on him. She swore us all to secrecy, while she told him she won the gun. The first that Randy will know that the gun is really his - is when he reads this notice. Congratulations, Randy enjoy your gun!!!!!

Park Manager Phil Gray reiterated what we all thought at the drawing. “We couldn’t be happier that Randy Bales won. Of all the events at the fort this year Randy and Debby either singly or together have been at every event. That’s what the Re-Enactor Appreciation Prizes were about - showing appreciation to the re-enactors that support the fort.”

The original Fort Boonesborough was built by Daniel Boone and his men in 1775
