The fifth annual Kuttawa Cannonball Run was held June 4-5 at Barkley and Kentucky lakes.

For the fifth year, Hu-B’s/Kuttawa Harbor Marina, owned by locals Wayne and Lisa Breedlove, served as the home base for the boaters participating in the run. There were boaters participating from 19 states. Jeff Hoefling, Terry Martin and Stephen Miles organized the event.

“Jeff Hoefling and myself came up with this idea five years ago. Him, his girlfriend, Audra, me and my wife, Heather, did all of the planning and organizing in the beginning,” Miles said. “Our dear friends and fellow boaters Mike and Cynthia Lewis also helped with the organizing in the beginning. I’ve since stepped back and filled more of a sponsorship and advisory role, and we brought in our good friend Terry Martin for more organizing and for the social media.”

A charity auction was also held Saturday at Hu-B’s and it raised over $50,000 for the benefitting charities. Auction items were donated by Stephen Miles Design, Lively Machine Co., JP Marine, Florida Power Boat Club, Speed on the Water, Demon Bikini, Mercury Racing, Jack Lindenberger, Boat Babe/Shelby Mattingly, Hucks/Mark Bailey and Lake Cumberland Thunder run.

Overall $95,000 was raised and, after expenses, roughly $75,000 will be donated. Funds will go to Lyon County Emergency Management, Lyon County Sheriff’s Camp and a few other miscellaneous charities.
