CURRENTS – Aug/Sept 2020

I hope you all are well and staying safe in these trying times. Well, where to begin? I guess the big news first. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, CCA and the Fort Bend chapter decided to cancel our annual Kidfish event and our 34th annual banquet. This was a hard decision and one we did not come to lightly. The executive board members work hard every year to see that these events go off without a hitch but this year we just couldn’t risk our guests, friends,and family so in the end we had to call it.

On to better news, we are going to have an online auction and raffle drawing in lieu of the banquet this year. So, be on the lookout for communications from CCA and our chapter regarding dates, times and information. I know it’s not the same as getting together, enjoying some food, drinks and good old fashion face to face conversations but this way we may still be able to enjoy an auction with a couple friends and still give back to CCA. If you have any questions please contact Jim Black (979) 240-5010 or Blake Tumlinson (979)-332-2236, our Banquet Chairman. Can’t wait to see you all online!

In tournament news, the Kidfish event will pick up next year where we left on. This is one of our favorite events and we do not plan to stop having it anytime soon. The best news we have to offer is that the Ladies only fishing tournament is still on schedule! The Lingerie on The Bay will be held in Matagorda TX, September 11 & 12th, 2020. Flyers and entry forms will be posted at matagordabay.com and on the Fort Bend Fishermen Facebook page so get yourself signed up. FYI, we have made some big changes to tournament this year. The main thing being that this is no longer an individual’s tournament and will be a team event so please read up on the new rules.

Last, and I can’t say this enough but thank you all for the endless support. We continue to see our members go out of their way to ensure CCA and coastal conservation succeeds. Thank you all, and on behalf of the Fort Bend CCA chapter our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been affected during these trying times. Just remember that we are all in this together and together we will get through this. Thanks again.

For news and information about the banquet and other events please see our website at ccatexas.org/events/2020-fort-bend-banquet. Remember to keep the waterways clean and be respectful to your fellow anglers. Hope to see you on the water!
