CURRENTS – Feb/March 2020
Hello everyone, our Ft. Bend committee members have been on the ball this year making plans and coming up with some great ideas for our 34th annual banquet. To mix things up a bit this year our Grand Prize will be a 2020 JH Performance Outlaw 185x with Evinrude 115hp ETEC and a Coastline single axle aluminum trailer. There will also be four other chances to win some fishing gear so be sure and get your tickets, I’m sure they’re not going to last long!
As usual, our gracious donors are doing all they can to help make this year’s banquet a huge success. It is scheduled for April 30, 2020 at the American Legion Hall in Rosenberg, TX. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. to preview auction items and begin silent auction bids with dinner served around 7:00 p.m. Contact either myself (info above) or Blake Tumlinson at 979-332-2236 for details. For table reservations you can also contact Blake or myself and we’ll get you fixed up. Hope to see you all there!
I’d like to give a special thanks to Sport Marine in Richmond for all they did for us on this year’s boat, what a great group to do business with. Another thanks to Steve Onstad and The Swinging Door in Richmond for allowing us to hold our monthly meeting there for all these years.
Finally, some dates for other upcoming events: CCA Kidfish will be July 25, 2020 and the “Ladies Only” fishing tournament, The Lingerie on The Bay, both held in Matagorda, TX, will be September 11 & 12, 2020. Flyers and Entry forms will be posted at matagordabay.com and ccatexas.org/fort-bend so be on the lookout for these events. Remember to keep the waterways clean and be respectful to your fellow anglers. Hope to see you on the water!
