DRY CREEK, LA (KPLC) -

We’ve all played horseshoes in the backyard or on the beach, but this weekend’s tournament in Dry Creek is for a great cause.

They are holding a horseshoe tournament to raise money for the Dry Creek Baptist Church Africa Fund.

They are joining the international project called Unengaged, Unreached People Groups to reach those in less fortunate areas who may not know much about God.

The horseshoe tournament starts at this Saturday 3 p.m. at the Dry Creek Baptist Camp and is twenty dollars per person.

The first place team will receive 100 dollars, and second place will receive 40 dollars.

The Dry Creek Baptist Camp was established in 1925 with the motto, “Where Jesus is Lord.”

They strive to get people away from their busy lives and free them from the world’s distractions to be able to hear God’s voice in their peaceful wilderness.

For more information on the church visit drycreekbaptist.org and for more information on the mission in Africa, visit

They often host fundraisers and events to help their members travel and spread the word of God.

    The Saharan dust has diminished a little bit. There is still a good amount around, but the conditions are slowly improving. The air quality index is in a moderate condition, so continue to use caution if you have any breathing or allergy concerns. There will be a few clouds, at times mostly cloudy during the day. There will also be plenty of sunshine peeking its way through the clouds here and there. I have a 20% chance of some rain, but that is being very generous.
