The Official 2022 Camp Country Schedule at Diamond Lake in Owensboro
FINALLY! The 5th Annual Camp Country event was supposed to take place in the Fall of 2020. Of course, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced postponement of that event for two consecutive years. But, here at WBKR, we are thrilled to announce that Camp Country is back. And our 5th Anniversary, now a couple of years in the making, is going to be our biggest and best event ever. Camp Country 2022 is sponsored by Henderson Chevrolet Buick GMC.
Here's this year's schedule of events.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD
5pm- The Angels for Ashley Fish Fry for St. Jude at Swim City Pavilion
Bring an appetite because the Angels for Ashley Cooking Team will be hosting a big Friday-night fish fry and all proceeds will benefit the children of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. They'll be serving until the food runs out! So, come 'n' get it! And, while you eat, you can enjoy . . .
6pm- The Oklahoma Hunnies
The Oklahoma Hunnies, the 2022 champions of WBKR's Friday Night Fight talent contest, will be in concert at the Swim City Pavilion while the fish fry is going on. Come by for great food and incredible music from these talented Whitesville teenagers.
6pm- The WBKR Camp Country Fishing Tournament for St. Jude
Get your rods and reels and get ready to go fishin'. Our friends Marshall and Vicki Graham are going to be hosting the return of our fishing tournament and we have some great prizes up for grabs for the biggest fish caught. Because the fishing tournament is also a fundraiser for St. Jude, the price per person is $5 and all proceeds will benefit the WBKR St. Jude Radiothon.

We're challenging all Diamond Lake campers to decorate and "countrify" their golf carts for a chance to win some fun WBKR prizes. Think "country music" and get to work!
