Championship hunt set for this week; special guests coming to Fitch Farms
The 2007 National Championship Hunt on the historic grounds of Fitch Farms-Galena Plantation in Holly Springs will include more than hunting. The big event is scheduled for November 8-10.
Special guests will include Tom Lester, who played Eb in one of the all-time favorite television shows, Green Acres, and artist and writer Ed Bruce, whose self-penned songs include “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” and “When You Fall In Love Everything’s A Waltz.”
In Green Acres, Eb was the farm hand and best friend and interpreter for Arnold, the pig. In one of Lester’s favorite episodes with Arnold, they were heading to Chicago to win money because of Arnold’s weather-forecasting tail.
“It was a hoot,” Lester said.
Lester lives in Mississippi and continues to lecture and communicate to people through radio, television and personal appearances.
In addition to writing, Bruce has a very successful acting career. He appeared in the CBS mini-series “The Chisolms” with Robert Preston; the NBC movie “Frank and Jesse James”; and was the co-star of “Bret Maverick” with James Garner.
He has also recorded dozens of national TV and radio commercials, including ads for McDonald’s, Kawasaki and John Deere.
Nashville recording artists Sonny Jackson and Tanya Davis will provide entertainment.
Also invited to the 2007 National Championship Hunt are governors and lieutenant governors of Mississippi and Tennessee, as well as congressmen and senators.
The 2007 National Championship Hunt will be featured in regional and national media, ranging from local newspaper and television, cable sporting shows, wildlife magazines and the worldwide web.
