The Hilltop news sat down with founder and head cook “Martelli” of the beloved mud bugs and got a candid interview on this annual CL fundraiser.
Crawfish Boil is coming this Saturday May 7th
The ReSporter: So when did this all get started and why:
Martelli: “Since there was not a lot of people around the CL area who love bugs, a group of parents got together for the love of the bugs and invited others over to enjoy fellowship and talk about our new high school and little league sports while the kids all played around. The first year was the spring of 2008. It all started off pretty simple; we wanted to eat crawfish and no one around here even sold them, so necessity is the mother of all inventions, so we rolled forward.”
The ReSporter: Since that initial event, when did this event evolve into what it is today?
Martelli: “Well the first few years it was just a bunch of friends getting together to generate friendship spirit, a get together for everyone, something these parts are not known for especially back in those days. As word got out each year it grew and one day we thought there should be a charge for folks to come and give money away for the youth around here for sports.” (more…)
