CURRENTS – Feb/March 2021
The Greater Sugar Land Chapter wrapped up 2020 with our Presidents Cup Fishing Tournament that took place in Sargent with a good time and lots of big fish being weighed in. This event has grown every year and displays the chapter comradery among members. This year’s Presidents Cup winner will be proudly putting the trophy on his mantle for the 7th time, congrats Joel Canavan. A special thank you to Bob and Barbara Hillard for hosting the weigh in party and providing dinner.

The chapter is looking forward to a busy 2021 starting with planning of our Annual Banquet scheduled to take place Thursday April 1 at the Stafford Centre. And like in years past the banquet will feature outstanding boiled crawfish, silent and live auctions. Make your plans to get your ticket early as we expect a sellout.
A staple of the Greater Sugar Land Chapter are our annual Kid Fish events to take place in the Sugar Land area and those are being planned in conjunction with the neighborhoods involved. Seeing the kids’ faces when they land a fish brings a smile and sense of pride to every member of our chapter. Our Kid Fish trailer, which is named in memory after David Kveton long time member of our chapter and past president, is something we are extremely proud of.
