What a wonderful summer. Our chapter wrapped up the hot summer months with our Corpus Christi Chapter Skeet Shoot. Way to go Mark Ray and Michael Henry for taking home the top shot awards! We also want to thank Michael Henry and the CC Pistol and Rifle Club for hosting our chapter on that fun evening. Of course during the event there were some real fish stories being told. Reports of this being one of the best summers for fishing in the Coastal Bend was a common thread in all the tales of tails. The last couple of weeks the fall bait run has been in full swing, and there have been some great days in the surf for some of our members.
Like the fish our fall is in full swing. The Corpus Christi Chapter hosted our Guides Cup on September 29-30 – a big thank you goes out to all of our participating guides and our Guides Cup Chairman, David Norris. We are immediately following up Guides Cup with our Babes on Baffin Tournament on October 7-8. Chairwomen Valerie Chilton and Judy Arnold, along with their core team of Kesley Gibson, Angie Bains and Lauren Augsburger have put together a great tournament, and the weigh-in will not be one to miss! There are still a couple of days until the tournament, so get your teams of lady anglers together, and register for this fun ladies-only fishing event. Go to babesonbaffin.org for full tournament details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hats off to our Babes on Baffin Title Sponsors Majek Boats, Premier Yahama, Waterloo Rods and Stinky Pants Fishing for making this event possible. A special thanks goes out to our Platinum Sponsors Marker 37 Marina, Sierra Pacific Mortgage, Water Street Restaurants, Total Oilfield Equipment, Animal Medical and Miller’s Bar-B-Q.
Banquet Chair Joseph Briones and his co-chair Judy Arnold are working on our 2017 Banquet and have secured our top raffle items. This year with the sponsorship from Andrews Distributing and contribution from Premier Yamaha, our Bull Red raffle will feature a 2016 Majek Illusion with a 150 HP Yamaha motor. Our Sow Trout raffle will feature a 2016 Kawasaki 4x4 Trans Mule and trailer sponsored by L&F Distributors, with contributions from CC Cycle Plaza and Superior Trailer Sales. A great thanks goes out to Alex Tompkins for stepping up to be the chairman for the Bull Red and Sow Trout Raffle. Stayed tuned for additional banquet details and save the date of March 9, 2017 for our 39th Annual Fundraising Banquet! Lastly we sincerely apologize that construction delays at the CCA Marine Development Center caused the cancelation of our 2016 Poco Rojo Kid Fish. Our Poco Rojo chairman Michael Henry is looking for a replacement date. Remember to get out and take a kid fishing; their voice is the future of Coastal Conservation!
