Currents - Dec 2014/Jan 2015
The Dallas Chapter welcomed John Blaha to a gathering at Tail Waters on McKinney Avenue in October. John presented a fantastic information update regarding CCA projects including the great news about Opening Cedar Bayou. The photos are great and clearly show the current flow and circulation in Cedar Bayou.
John and Drew explained to the audience how local dollars from Dallas and other Chapters are impacting our fisheries and communities. We enjoyed bratwurst and refreshments, fellowship with friends and with your donations raised over $600 for CCA. Thank you to all who attended.
Our next event is being hosted by Marine Max located at Pier 121 in Lewisville. By the time this is published, the event will have concluded. With anticipation I am sure we will have had a great time. Frank invited manufacturers known to be supportive of CCA to attend and share tips regarding product developments, techniques for getting the most from the equipment we use while fishing and teased us with shiny new boats and gear. The Dallas team has also invited all of our prior banquet sponsors to attend, invite friends and bring products to demonstrate as well. Based on the planning thus far, the food, refreshments and fellowship with fellow anglers should be great.
This event is our last event for 2014 and we plan to make it our annual Fall Membership Drive event. The purpose is to present sponsorships, table sales and individual ticket sales for our April Banquet. We also plan to use this event to introduce our friends and associates to the benefits of becoming a CCA member.
We plan to presale our April Banquet which will be held at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on April 16, 2015. Additional Chapter meetings are planned for January, February and March. Sponsorships, enhanced table sales reservations, and individual tickets are now available from any of the Dallas team or by contacting CCA or by attending any of the remaining Chapter meetings.
As the holidays approach, our wish is for everyone to experience a joyous season, family health and happiness and of course Tight Lines. —Hal Thomas 972-768-3521
