Friends Of Appomattox Enjoy Picnic

On Saturday, July 14, at the home of the hosts, Damien and Deanna Ferrel, 20 members of the Friends of the Appomattox River and their guests enjoyed a picnic dinner followed by ice cream and other desserts. Al Lookofsky demonstrated the ancient art of fire making using a bow drill fire starter. Several FAR members attempted imitating this method, which might serve a camping floater on a canoe or kayak well, as he or she wandered down a meandering Virginia river on a multi-day adventure.
