The second annual meeting of the Smith Mountain Lake Corkscrew Coveters was held at Bernard's Landing in conjunction with the Smith Mountain Lake Wine Festival. The general public was invited for free wine tasting courtesy of the many Virginia wineries exhibiting.
Wine tasting was free but there was a $15.00 entrance fee for the rental of a wine glass.
One of the Sweet Potato Queens was seen handing out complimentary Sweet Potato Coupons.
Live entertainment was provided during the entire meeting. Here the enthusiastic attendees get ready for the Corkscrew Polka.
Amidst the throngs of people attending, it was not unusual to see go-withs lost and separated from their coveters. Some had not been found when the meeting ending.
