RA Baskeball Tournament

February 28, 1981

We had active basketball teams in all three divisions of our Royal Ambassador program at Mableton First Baptist. Pastor Bob Skelton was from Rome and had arranged for the teams from Garden Lakes Baptist Church in Rome to travel to play us on neutral ground at a gymnasium in Rockmart. Rod Nave and Jerry Stargel were the coaches for the Crusader RA team, Grades 4-6, which is shown here.
