A Big “Atta Boy!” to all our banquet committee members, sponsors and volunteers who helped make our 39th Annual San Antonio Chapter Banquet on May 3, 2018 another over-the-top event! Banquet Chair Robert Lozano and his committee did a fantastic job putting this event together. Urban Concrete was the winner of this year’s Early Bird Table Buyer Drawing, and he took home an Uncle Henry .410 Lever Action Rifle. Be sure to buy your tables early next year to be a part of this drawing!

Dan Schmidt won the 2018 Shallow Stalker boat motor and trailer. Irene Davis took home the Jeep Wrangler from Jordan Ford. Victor Hewitt took home the Shiner Beers Polaris 570 UTV.

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.
