  1. The right man for a big job! Best of luck. AF Bob
  2. It has been an honor to work and fish with all of you during the last few years. Those that know me well, know that it has been a difficult 24 months as I have battled health issues. I could not have done it without your support, kind thoughts and prayers. I also want to thank Iain and all our BOD members, State Chairs and Volunteers for their hard work. CAG is a big family with its own ups and downs, agreements and disagreements. It will grow and flourish under our new President but it will need our membership to come together in 2018. We will need new volunteers to step up and support our efforts. We have exciting things in the works; the protection of carp, the expansion of kids tournaments, our NACA, our updated store and our bigger internet presence. Iain Sorrell is the right man to lead CAG into the future. His passion for our sport is evident in all he does. I look forward to his new ideas and leadership! I do hope to heal up soon and I can't wait to share some badly needed bank time with many of you. Good Luck! AF Bob
  3. As you may know I have been fighting a long illness. What started as a simple surgery turned into a long battle with sepsis and a knee replacement. I have done what I could but it is now time for me to step down to make way for a new leader. It has been my honor to serve as CAG's President and I want to thank all of you for the support and best wishes while I was sick. It is now time for CAG to select a new President to lead us into the future. Over the next few weeks we will be looking for candidates to fill this role. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at (315) 323-4632. The pay for the job is not very good but the rewards are great. You can help grow our sport, introduce kids to fishing and work with state officials to protect the fish we love so much! You will also get the chance to work side by side with a great group of guys on the BOD. They all work extremely hard behind the scenes to make this group function. I owe so much to all of them. I want to publicly thank our VP Iain Sorrell for his leadership during my illness. He has done a fantastic job for all of us. In closing, I want to say I have had many opportunities to volunteer in this great organization. I was a State Chair for MA, NY, CO and eventually became the Director of State Chairs. A few years ago I got the privilege to serve as our President. Each position was unique and presented its own challenges but they were all extremely rewarding. I now ask all of you to please consider becoming a volunteer. The future of our organization depends on you! Sincerely, Bob Giordano (AF Bob)
  4. We are very excited to announce the CAG Spring Big 4 contest. Please go to the 2017 Big 4 thread to get contest rules and information. The contest will run May 1, 2017 thru June 15, 2017. We are now working with our sponsors to line up some great prizes which will be announced shortly. I wanted to thank Barry Howard for stepping up to make sure this great contest continues! We know that all of us have a choice when spending our money on carp gear and tackle. So please support the people that support CAG and our events! Thanks AF Bob

  19. We know your out there! Please get your Platform statements into our BOD!
  20. Here is Brad Gant letter of intent for IL State Chair. My name is Brad Gant. I live in Fairbury Il. I am applying to become a State Chair for IL. I have been a member of CAG since 1997. My dad is Bill Hodge. I am very active in carp fishing and have fished many CCCs. I am going to promote CAG to the best as I can. All of my family fishes for carp and I have 3 fishins planned for this year. They are going to be venues never fished before. I look at the new venues to have the best possible chance to draw new members to CAG. There is several fishing clubs in my area and i am going to offer to do a seminar at one of their mettings to get intrest in CAG. IL once had the largest amount of members in CAG and I want to bring IL back to those glory days. Thank You Brad Gant
