CURRENTS – June/July 2019

Thank you for your support! The thanks go to our Redfish Bay Chapter Board, Houston support team (especially John Blaha), our sponsors/donors, and banquet attendees – for the first time ever, we had a sellout banquet! As always, special thanks to Chris Marine for being our Title Sponsor. We continue to work hard to have a fun, family-oriented Banquet that has raffle and auction items for everyone.  I hope your attendance is an affirmation of our success!

One special note: we did not realize that we had a sellout until the evening before the banquet. When we counted corporate tables and pre-sold online tickets, we realized that we were at capacity for the number of seats we had in the Civic Center (even after crowding in two more tables). We sent an email to everyone in the Redfish Bay, Aransas Bay and Corpus Chapters announcing the sellout, but some people did not get the email in time. As a result, we had to turn people away at the door. As I said, this was the first time we had ever sold out and we are really sorry we had to turn people away. Next year, we will try to have as many chairs as possible, but we encourage you to buy your tickets online as soon as you determine you can attend the Banquet.

We just held a Take a Kid Fishing Event. Registration and shrimp boil was the evening of Friday, May 31, and fishing was the morning of Saturday, June 1 (until noon). After fishing, there was hot dogs and the awards ceremony. Our Beeville Fish Fry is another great chapter event! More to follow, but it is usually the Thursday before dove season starts.

Our Redfish Bay Chapter continues to support conservation in the coastal bend.  If you would like to be active on our board, please give me a call.
