The Austin Chapter is composed of the greater Austin area.
CCA Austin sincerely thanks our 2015 sponsors for leading the way to yet another record year of fundraising at the 2015 Banquet. Please show your thanks to these Champions of Conservation by doing business with them at every opportunity!
Congratulations to Keith Middleton and Spillar Custom Hitches for being the 2015 winner of the CCA-Austin "Early-Bird" table buyer prize! We hope you enjoy the guided wade fishing trip with Captain Tom Hans.
**Congratulations John Bundy, Ticket #686, CCA Austin 2015 Boat Winner!**
This year’s boat is made possible, for the fourth year in a row, by our very generous boat sponsor, Denbow Company, Inc. Thank you!
Thank you to everyone who purchased their tickets early to participate in this year's Early Bird drawing for a Laguna Custom Rod with a Shimano Curado reel. We have drawn this year's Early Bird drawing winner, and we would like to congratulate Clifford Mankin on his new rod and reel combo!
CCA Austin is excited to announce Texas bred singer/songwriter Charlie Robison will perform at the 2015 banquet May 7th!
CCA Austin will celebrate its 36th Anniversary May 7th and we look forward to seeing you there!
Thanks to the magnanimous support of our many sponsors, table buyers, and donors, in 2014 the Austin Chapter of CCA was again #1 and led all 58 Texas chapters in net fundraising! These much needed funds continue to directly benefit the conservation of Texas’ coastal resources, various CCA scholarship programs, critical State-wide habitat initiatives, and much more. We are humbled and thank you. CCA Austin’s 36th Annual Banquet is coming May 7th to the Palmer Events Center.
The CCA banquet has become the marquee event of the year in Austin are sold out again this year.
The 2015 banquet will amaze once again with cuisine provided by some of Austin’s finest restaurants, our legendary live auction with fine guns, trips from around the world and more, our 2015 Shallow Sport banquet boat, the biggest and best raffle yet, plus the iconic Yeti game. And that’s just for starters!
All guests receive a great meal, unlimited beverages, a CCA membership, a high quality table gift Austin has become legendary for, and our promise for a memorable night.
Currents - Jun/Jul 2015
The 36th Anniversary Austin banquet is behind us now and the support for Conservation our sponsors, donors and members show continues to amaze. The Palmer Events Center was packed full with over 1700 CCAers and they were treated with live music from Charlie Robison, great food, once-in-a-lifetime-trips and just a generally super night. Thanks to our presenting sponsors, Covert Chevrolet and Independence Title, and everyone involved for making our banquet the best CCA has to offer.
A lot of folks have a lot of new toys or trips to take. 2015 Boat Raffle winner, John Bundy, has a brand new Shallow Sport. Willie Schmidt won the Sportsman’s 4WD and is tooled to terrorize south Texas. Henry Kubena has a brand spanking new Polaris Ranger Crew from Hoffpauir Polaris. Preston Luster, and 20 others, became Lifetime CCA members at the banquet. To thank them all we held a special drawing, that Preston won, and he’s going to the Abacos! All told, lucky winners walked off with nearly $200,000 in prizes!
Next up on the calendar for Austin is Anglers’ Night Out at Abel’s on the Lake July 15th. Like the banquet, ANO is a blast and 200 or so gather with us at these for fun, festivities and a free meal compliments of Smokey Denmark’s. We always have a great guest speaker, admission is free and you don’t have to be a member to come so BRING A FRIEND AND ASK THEM TO JOIN CCA. We have great raffles with all kinds of great prizes and that’s where George bought his winning Shallow Sport ticket. So there’s another great reason to come.
