John Clarke has spent a good portion of the past several months knocking on doors in and around Kershaw County. But he is not seeking votes nor is he running for public office.Instead, the Camden resident is selling advertising space and seeking donations for the inaugural Wateree Outdoor Life Festival (WOLF) to be held on the campus of the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County at 810 Lyttleton St. in Camden on Saturday, March 8. The event, to run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. that day, will be open to the public.The one-day event coincides with the South Carolina Association of Taxidermists’ 34th annual Show and Competition to be held in Camden on March 7 and 8.With both the show and festival rapidly approaching, Clarke, the chairman of the WOLF organizing committee, has found himself a busy man; yet, his nerves have not gotten the best of him as he tries to pull off this ambitious weekend doubleheader.“I’m sleeping good,” Clarke said with a laugh when asked about the busy plate he has in front of him.
