    The CCA Texas Redfish Bay Chapter is finishing 2017 as the most successful year in memory. Our 2017 Annual Banquet far exceeded our goals, and the Take a Kid Fishing and Beeville Fish Fry events were, as always, great successes! We could not be more proud of our board members, John Blaha (our real CCA guy), donors and members. Thank all of you so much for your support – most of our donors and sponsors have literally supported us year after year for as long as I can remember. It is such a relief to know that we can count on your support each year. A special shout-out to Chris's Marine, who has been our Title Sponsor for fourteen years in a row!

    As you can imagine, most of our banquet donors and sponsors have businesses in Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Rockport and Ingleside. Hurricane Harvey devastated these areas with high winds and flood waters. Most of our donors and sponsors are still not back in business and have walls stripped down to studs. In some cases, the buildings no longer exist. Many of our board members, donors, sponsors and members are still making repairs to their homes as well, if there are homes left. To all of our CCA family, we wish you a safe and speedy recovery.

    In another sad turn for the chapter, Keith Hargrove passed away. Keith was an active Redfish Bay Chapter board member; he worked hard to make the banquet a success. He will be missed by all who knew him. Our sympathies to Lynn, his wife.

    2018 is just around the corner. Mark your calendar: The 2018 Redfish Bay Chapter Annual Banquet is scheduled for April 21. As always, it will be a fun family event!

    The Redfish Bay Chapter wishes a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of our members! – Norman Oates, (361) 790-2748
