Weather doesn’t dampen Bratfest

By Jonathan Herrmann

Despite dark skies and some heavy rainfall, Mother Nature didn’t wash out the 12th annual Tellico Boaters Assistance Response Team’s Bratfest fundraiser.

Although the event was moved indoors at the Yacht Club because of the weather, officials carried on with festivities as planned.

“We always have the contingency to move indoors, and the Yacht Club is always very accommodating,” organizer Rick Mannarino said. “We have full use of the facility and great bartenders that are here to support us.”
