Cross Roads Reconciliation Services Draws In Big Crowd for Annual Outdoorsman Show

Posted:

Chatham, VA--Hundreds of outdoorsmen and women got a little slice of heaven Saturday.

Cross Roads Reconciliation Services held their annual Outdoorsman Show at the Olde Dominion Agricultural Complex in Chatham. It was a big attraction for hunters and those who just enjoy being outdoors.

Folks traveled from all across the region to take part in some fun competition. But, they say knowing it was all for a great cause, made their time there that much better.

For the sixth year in a row, Cross Roads Reconciliation Services, a Christian-based counseling service in Danville, has drawn in a camo-clad crowd for a weekend full of fun.

The event showcases dozens of vendors and offers plenty of competition.
 "We have events like the National Wild Turkey Federation Sanctioned Turkey Calling event," said Regina Curtis, Founder and Director of Cross Roads Reconciliation Services. 

That competition drew in the pros and some rookies.

"I competition call since I was 10 years-old. There was another competition in North Carolina but they had better prizes here so that's why I came here," said Jon Miller,  a turkey caller.

"First time she'd ever called today. She came to me and one of my friends and we helped her before the contest," said Brett Bowes, a turkey caller.

There was also 3-D archery competition.

 "We're giving away $1,500 in cash," said Ian Rigney.

The show also included a cornhole tournament and chain saw woodcarving.

Although folks enjoyed everything the Outdoorsman Show had offer, they say the reason why the come back every year is because of the great cause.

"What they do is phenomenal for the community,"said  Ricky Higgins, a turkey caller.

"We serve anybody that walk in the door for  whatever need they have. You don't have to look far to see someone who's struggling in life and broken and in need of just someone to hear their heart and point them to some Godly truth," said Curtis.

All the money raised from the event this weekend will help fund the Cross Roads Truth House Program. They are working on renovating three homes that will house women that have just gotten out of jail. They will also have counselors available to help get them back on their feet.
