A Big Shanty to remember, who else can manage to have such a successful event in weather advisor conditions that included a tornado, but the KBA and JRM? The Big Shanty was a success! 


I want to thank, in advance, JRM management for helping to make the experience run smoothly over the course of the 1 day event.  I want to thank Superior Plumbing for being our Title sponsor and for the extra clean toilets.  I want to thank Marlon Longacre for his passion for this event for the past 13 years and I want to thank the Big Shanty Committee that got to work on this affair back in January.   I want to thank Mike Everhart for getting up extra early for the past 9 years and running the race and being our “master of ceremonies” and agreeing to do it again.  I want to thank Sue Picardi and the Membership Committee for their March on Kennesaw.   I want to thank the Hospitality Committee for agreeing to shift work during the festival.   To sum it up, I want to thank YOU the KBA members who volunteer and make this event happen.  Without you KBA, there would not be this level of donation to our beloved community.  Last but not least, I want to thank God for giving us 1 full day.  During the course of the week leading up to the event it did not look like we would even get that.
