OPENING OF THE ROOST

Destin Snowbird Club will hold its Opening of the Roost at 2 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18, at the Destin Community Center. The event will include a ribbon cutting, followed by registration from 2-4 p.m.

 

It's that time of year again, when the snowbirds descend from the north onto the coastline and breathe some life into the otherwise sleepy winter months in Destin.

Many of our northern friends have already arrived, including Destin Snowbird Club fishing activities coordinator Jack Boex, of Sturgeon Bay, Wisc. He arrived in October for his first Destin Fishing Rodeo, and his falls will never be the same.

"I want to spread the word to some of our members that they may be interested in coming down earlier to get into the rodeo. It was a lot of fun," Boex told The Log.

Most of those who didn't arrive early for the rodeo will be here this weekend. Monday, the Destin Snowbird Club will hold its Opening of the Roost at 2 p.m. Monday at the Destin Community Center. The event will include a ribbon cutting, followed by registration from 2 to 4 p.m.
