CURRENTS – October/November 2019
Fall is about here in South Texas and hopefully some rain and cooler weather in the forecast. Most of our attention has been focused on our upcoming Babes on Baffin Ladies Fishing Tournament. Valerie Chilton, Kimberly Prowse and Jessica Arroyo have been leading our tournament committee and we are on schedule for another big turnout!
On October 11 and 12, Columbus Day Weekend, the Corpus Christi Chapter will be hosting Babes on Baffin Ladies Fishing Tournament. The event will be at Marker 37—same as last year—on North Padre Island. Two hundred and fifty lady anglers participated in last year’s tournament and we are expecting a great turnout again this year! Valerie Chilton, Tournament Director, can be reached at 361-882-5199 regarding sponsorship opportunities and information. Registration is currently open, and you can access thru the CCA website, CCA Corpus Christi Facebook page or Babes on Baffin Facebook page.
Mark your calendar for March 19, 2020 for our Annual CCA Banquet at American Bank Center. If you would you like to get involved as a volunteer for one of our upcoming events, contact Cliff Johnstone at 361-816-7338 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jay Gardner at email@example.com
