Fans enjoy classic Army-Navy game at Big Canoe Veranda

More than 50 spirited fans watched an exciting Army-Navy football game at the Big Canoe Clubhouse Veranda on Saturday, December 8.

Sponsored by the North Georgia Veterans, a tailgating food buffet and four large-screen TVs made the event a festive one for the football enthusiasts on the cold, wet afternoon.

“A fun time was enjoyed by all attendees including spirited good-natured kidding among our Veterans and their guests,” NGV President Peter Vallone said.

Hamburgers, brats, potato salad and sides were enjoyed by the raucous supporters of West Point and Annapolis as Army won its third straight Commander-in-Chief trophy, 17-10 after a nail-biting fourth quarter.

The first Army-Navy game took place in 1890, has been played every season since 1930 and has been split pretty evenly with both teams dominating in spurts. The longest winning streak was by Navy between 2002 and 2015. Army has now won three straight.
