CURRENTS – December/January 2020
What a great fall we are having, I hope everyone is catching fish like we are in the Mid-Coast region! Our last big event for 2019 was our annual Speedy Stop Guides Cup tournament on October 4th and everyone had a great time. Thanks to Danny and Chad Goyen for organizing this successful fundraiser for CCA! Also special thanks to long time sponsor Jimmy Burns at Waterloo Rods for stepping up in a big way this year with the addition of custom Waterloo rods as bonus prizes! The winning team was Shoalwater, guided by Captain Perry Rankin with a total weight of 19.15 lbs., followed by Team Speedy Stop guided by Captain Nathan Beabout in 2nd place and Team Bob White guided by Captain Derek Dick in 3rd place.
Our chapter will again be partnering with the San Antonio Bay Partnership to assist with the February Abandoned Crab Trap Cleanup in Aransas, San Antonio and Matagorda Bays. The big event will be the first Saturday of the closure on February 22 with an after party that evening in Port O’Connor, but we will be working throughout the closure to clean up our bays. Last year we had a great time hanging out with folks that joined from several other chapters including Austin. If you want to bring your boat and participate, Allan Berger has laid out cleanup routes to follow. You can contact Allan at (713) 829-2852 for more information.
We are gearing up for our next banquet the evening of Friday, May 1, 2020 at the Victoria Community Center. Several corporate tables have already been sold! You can purchase tables by contacting Tylar Walyuchow Dick, our banquet chair, at (361) 541-9011.
This year our grand prize raffle item is a brand new 2020 Haynie 21′ SuperCat with a 150 hp Suzuki and custom Coastline trailer. We have three other exciting raffle prizes as well. Tickets are $50 each, please contact Mike Brawner, our raffle chair, at (281) 787-1671 or Cheryl Guthrie at (361) 935-3342 to purchase tickets.
