2012 Tournament Results
Thank You to all our 2012 Sponsors!
Here's the summary from the 2012 CBKA event.
If it weren't for the windy conditions it would have been perfect! We had 69 registrations, more than double from a year ago!! We raised $2036 for Make-a-Wish and $1938 for CCA!! A lot of positive comments and promises to attend again next year.
Overall, it was a very successful event. The weather held off just long enough to allow for fishing. Later in the day it became very windy. During the awards dinner and raffle we were hit by a fast moving storm that included tornado warnings! But everyone was off the water, everything secured and we were inside and safe.
Alot of fish were caught but not many big ones. We held 2 raffles. The regular raffle was for accessories, fishing equipment, books, videos and more. A second raffle was for a Hobie kayak donated by Backyard Boats and we sold 75 $20 tickets! The coolest part about the donated kayak is that the winner didn't even own one. He had borrowed a friends kayak so he could fish the tournament!
Really, really appreciate everyone’s support and looking forward to next year!
