CURRENTS – April/May 2021
Hello from the thawed lands of San Antonio. We hope that you, your friends and family pushed through the frozen tundra in February. From North Texas to the coastal bend, humans, wildlife and fish took a catastrophic beating. CCA needs our support now more than ever. We lost a significant portion of fish that could not tolerate the temperature.
We would like to thank our loyal area teams for participated in our 8th Annual Hooked on Clays event. We were blessed with dialed in chamber of commerce weather, cold beverages with fun had by all. There was great shooting, great food and great fun for this safely run, socially distanced outdoor event.
Special thanks go out to NSC – National Shooting Complex, what a great place to practice your shooting skills and enjoy a beautiful outdoor patio to relax after that hard day of shooting.

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.
We are proud to once again recognize our sponsors for 2016. Many of the companies listed below are returning sponsors from last year. To them we say thanks again and to the new ones for this year, welcome and thank you. These companies and individuals provide additional dollars to support CCA efforts in Texas. We are proud to have them with us tonight. Please take a moment to thank them during the course of tonight’s activities.
