This Weekend in Stanly County November 3

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 — The trees are putting out their last burst of color before autumn’s winds strip them bare. It’s time to get out that rake. It’s also a great time to get out into Stanly County’s many parks to take a hike, an end of season picnic or a quiet paddle along our beautiful lakes and rivers. There are bass waiting to be caught, sports teams to support, pickin’ on the porch to enjoy and wineries to visit.

Let’s start this Thursday by supporting the Stanly Community College’s Men’s Baseball team as they take on Fall Classic at 1 pm. The game will be played at the Don Montgomery Park. Come on out and support those Eagles.

The Friends of the Senior Center celebrate the Center’s 25th anniversary with a presentation by Jeanne Robertson. The event takes place at the Agri-Civic Center on Thursday at 7 pm. Proceeds will help support Home Delivery Meals, in-home services and other services and programs that will benefit the seniors of Stanly County.

On Friday the game goes on as Stanly Community College’s Men’s Baseball team take on Fall Classic at 1 pm at Don Montgomery Park.

Friday evening and it’s time for Pickin’ on the Porch at the Badin Inn. If the weather is chilly, the porch is winterized for your comfort and the music plays on. This Friday Eversole and Flame entertain from 6:30 pm to 10 pm. The event is free and open to the public. Food and wine is available.

Saturday brings Russell’s Bass Fishing Tournament to Badin Lake. The fun starts at the Alcoa Boar Landing. There’s a $40 entry fee and a five fish limit. For more information check out Russell’s Bass Fishing Tournament Series on Facebook.

Saturday also sees more baseball as the Stanly Community College’s Men’s Baseball team continues the Fall Classic at 1 pm at Don Montgomery Park.

At Misenheimer, the Pfeiffer Women’s Volleyball team will take on St. Andrews at 1 pm at Pfeiffer University. Come and support the home team.

This is a lovely time of the year to be gliding along the river. This Saturday take the trip with God’s Country Fall Paddle Tour. Enjoy an easy paddle, take in the beautiful fall colors and stop for a picnic lunch along the way.

Above the Pee Dee River, on a steep stony hillside, sits one of Stanly County’s four local wineries, Stony Mountain Vineyards. Open Wednesday through Saturday from noon until 6 pm, the winery is a delightful place for an afternoon trip. A winding road takes the visitor to the top of Stony Mountain and to panoramic views of the Uwharrie Mountains and the lower Yadkin Valley. Stop at the bar in the spacious reception room for a wine tasting experience or wander out on to the deck for a glass of wine while you enjoy the magnificent view.  Planning an event? This is a perfect place for rehearsal dinners, corporate dinners, birthdays, anniversaries, reunions and small receptions.

In the coming weeks we’ll highlight Stanly County’s other wineries, and give a first-hand look at some of the county’s unique events. Stay tuned.
