CURRENTS – Oct/Nov 2018
What a day! On August 11th the chapter hosted our 17th annual kid fish tournament that was at the Walters Lake in Cat Spring. The event started at 3:00pm and lasted until 6:00pm. We had over 40 kids registered to fish, they enjoyed hot dogs, chips and drinks prepared by Mark Bolton. Everything was free including all the bait. All the kids had to bring was their fishing poles and parents.
The tournament was for all ages from 1 year and up, prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and the winners in the three age groups received a rod and reel. All the kids who caught a fish got a CCA tumbler. The winners in the three categories are as follows: Age 0-9 1st place Reid Engelbecht; 2nd place Rhett Reichardt; 3rd place Logon Schalla. Age 10-15 1st place Samantha Biberstein (she got the biggest fish 8#catfish); 2nd place Chase Cooper; 3rd place Nicholas Reichardt. Age 16-up 1st place Rob Trevino; 2nd place Amie Howerton; 3rd place Ross Pagsdale.
I would like to thank the board members Mark Bolton, Brent Pfeffer, Danne Ellis, Mark Switzer, Mary O’Neal, Ron Chess and Don and Patricia Walters for all their help that made this event a great success, and a thanks to Brian Weaver and CCA for all the gifts they donated. On behalf of all the Prairie Chapter Members a big thanks to Don and Patricia for letting us use their lake. Don told me that next year will be better than this year because he plans to stock the lake with more fish.
We hope to see everybody next year at our 18th annual CCA kid fish, the date and time will be announced at our 2019 Banquet on the 1st Thursday in April at the Cat Spring Hall. -Ron Chess, 979-525-9254
