CURRENTS – October/November 2019
Who is ready for our first cold front? I know our Mid-Coast Chapter is! Our chapter has had a fun-filled summer and we are looking forward to a busy fall. We had a great turnout from our local community on the evening of August 13th to hear Dr. John Scarpa from Texas A&M Corpus Christi speak on the opportunities that are coming to Texas under our new oyster mariculture law. Our own State Representative Geanie Morrison provided opening remarks on recent legislative progress in regard to our state oyster fishery.
On August 23, five members from our Mid-Coast Chapter board assisted Dow USC-Seadrift in a shoreline cleanup along Boggy Bayou Park in Port O’Connor. Thanks to our Vice President Rod Graci for organizing the event, it was a great success! Always a positive when our local chapter partners with local industry to make our coastline a better place!

Our board will be working fast and furious this month to prepare for our upcoming 18th Annual Speedy Stop Guides Cup Tournament in Port O’Connor on October 4. Thanks to Danny & Chad Goyen for organizing an outstanding event and best of luck to all our guides and fishermen that are participating! The only way to be a part of this event is to buy a spot at our annual banquet auction, so consider joining us for our 2020 banquet–detail coming out soon!
