CURRENTS – December/January 2020
Our chapter has been very busy the last couple months. On October 11-12, our chapter held our annual Babes on Baffin Ladies Fishing Tournament at the recently remodeled Marker 37 on North Padre Island -and what a turnout! Over 250 lady anglers participated—check out our CCA website and Facebook page for some great photos. Congratulations to Valerie Chilton, Kimberly Prowse and Jessica Arroyo and all the board members/volunteers who donated their time to make this annual ladies fishing event so successful. The Babes on Baffin T-shirt design for our participants was the best ever!
On October 23, our Anglers Night Out new member recruiting event was at Water Street Oyster Bar. We had over 50 attendees for a great oyster buffet and an awesome presentation from Brad Lomax, Dr. Jennifer Pollack and Dr. Fox. Jay Gardner, our committee chairman, did a great job putting this together quickly! Thanks to all the other CCA members who helped set up the tables, check in, and sold those raffle tickets. Big shout out to Tyler Thorsen for creating our radio advertising campaign.
