    2019 CCC RESULTS

    Huge congrats to a most deserving Wayne Boone for catching a carp in nearly impossible conditions at Joliet and winning the major awards at the 2019 CCC. Congrats, also, to Destinie, Aniq, and Fred for your section wins! Big thanks to Chad Bettisch and Crew for a well-organized, enjoyable event, to Larry Seeman for his generous donations of porta-potty services and the coin bottle that generated some additional funds for CAG, to Larry's sister for catering the event, to Jeff Conroy for his donation of art for the winning angler, to all who sponsored and graciously added to the raffle tables, and to the 40+ anglers who participated in CCC 2019. Despite the tough conditions, it was a pleasure to be among those in attendance. --Frank Rink
  2. Chad--Please add me to your Post CCC Tournament. Thanks! --Frank Rink (Just want to make sure I'm in just in case the "Going" button on Facebook didn't work.

  10. FFF 2019 is over! CAG’s FFF 2020 will be held on Wednesday, January 1, 2020! I hope you will consider participating.
