Good day fellow Conservationists,
The Corpus Christi Chapter has our CCA Texas brothers and sisters in our thoughts as we all move forward from the effects Harvey brought to our beloved Gulf Coast.
We have recently hosted our Babes on Baffin Annual Fishing Tournament at Marker 37 on October 5-6. Valerie Chilton and Judy Arnold, along with their Tournament Chairs, headed up the event. It was a blast, and a big thank you to all the ladies who spent a day on the water all in the name of coastal conservation! We could not hold such a great event without our top sponsors: Majek Boats, Premier Yamaha, Sierra Pacific Mortgage, and Marker 37 Marina.
Due to Hurricane Harvey our Poco Rojo kid fish tournament has been rescheduled to Saturday October 21 at the CCA Marine Development Center in Flour Bluff. The "Hatchery," as we all know it, did sustain some damage to their facilities, but Dr. Robert Vega and his team worked hard so we could hold the event on the rescheduled date. Keep a lookout for an email from CCA Texas with more details including registration information for Poco Rojo. A huge thanks goes out to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Ainsworth Trucking, Mike Henry (Poco Rojo Chair) and the CCA Corpus Christi Chapter for putting on this event for the young anglers.
We look forward to seeing everyone at our 40th Annual Fundraising Banquet on Thursday February 22, 2018 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Hang in there and enjoy the fall! Yours in Conservation – Jake Herring, (361)244-0258
