CURRENTS – Dec/Jan 2019

Happy Holidays to all!! Wow…what another fantastic fundraising year. Thank you to all of our selfless volunteers and sponsors. We are truly blessed with the number of folks that help out with all the events we host throughout the year.

Speaking of events, mark your calendars for our 6th annual “Hooked on Clays” Sporting Clays Shoot on March 22, 2019, at the National Shooting Complex. For information on this event you may contact me or Tricia Kocurek at hookedonclays@gmail.com.

Also coming up will be our Banquet committee meetings which will begin in January. I encourage anyone interested in possibly joining one of our committees to come to one of these meetings. Please contact Banquet Chairman Robert Lozano with any questions you may have and to obtain the meeting dates and location. You may reach Robert at robertolozano129@yahoo.com. This year’s banquet will be on May 2nd and will again be held at The Freeman Expo Halls.

Look in the next issue of CURRENTS for our upcoming general membership meeting date. We plan on having the same format that we had this past year by having two speakers, one being a guest from either TPWD or an affiliate of CCA, and the other a Texas fishing guide. We learn a lot at these meetings along with raffling off some nice gifts and a guided fishing trip. Come join us.

I hope everyone has a blessed and happy holiday season and remember to Wet-A-Line with your family and friends!

Chapter History

The San Antonio Chapter of CCA was founded in 1979 as the Southwest Chapter of GCCA. From the very beginning, the San Antonio Chapter has been at the forefront of fundraising and policy making for CCA. Although located approximately 130 miles from the coast, the San Antonio Chapter consists of approximately 4,000 men, women and children who fish from Port O’Connor to Port Isabel. It is this diverse membership with ties to such a large portion of the Texas coast that has allowed the San Antonio Chapter to lead the way in CCA conservation efforts. Today, the San Antonio Chapter of CCA is the largest fundraising chapter in the nation, grossing over $1 million in our 2015 banquet. The San Antonio Chapter of CCA welcomes participation in its efforts from those interested in making positive impact on our coastal resources.
