CURRENTS – October/November 2019

Our 20th Banquet was another record sold out banquet. Five in a row. This year’s banquet was dedicated to our chapter founder James Richard Fox. He was instrumental in helping to establish what the CCA has become today, as well as being one of the founders of BABES ON THE BAY. His legacy will always be with us.

The Banquet was another success. Thanks to our Title Sponsor, SALAMI’S ACE HARDWARE, along with STAR SPONSORS: POOR MAN’S COUNTRY CLUB, COASTAL INNOVATIONS, PROSPERITY BANK, PREMIER YAMAHA, FIRST COMMUNITY BANK, ACADEMY SPORTS + OUTDOORS and RON HOOVER. KEY SPONSORS: CANTERBURY DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION, GSM INSURORS and numerous table sponsors. A very special thanks to the Staff at CAMP ARANZAZU for hosting our Banquet for the second year in a row. We also want to thank L&F DISTRIBUTORS LTD, Corpus Christi for furnishing beer for the banquet. Last, but not least, The Aransas Bay Chapter members that go above and beyond year after year to ensure that everything always runs smoothly.

A special THANK YOU to Jay Watkins, who spoke at our September “Angler’s Night Out” and Albert at Poor Man’s Country Club for hosting. We had a great turnout and Jay’s wealth of knowledge was appreciated by all our local anglers who joined us!

Planning has already begun for our 21st Annual Babes on the Bay Tournament next May 15-16, 2020. Registration will open at the beginning of January. Updates will be on the “Babes on the Bay” Facebook Page and Instagram @babesonbay. Never too early to start booking your guides for next year, ladies!
