  4. Hello All I have been getting a lot of feedback about restarting a quarterly printed news letter. We are looking for someone who may want to help put it together. Here is a basic template we are looking at. President Welcome Ed's Corner (Ed Wagner Carp Stories) Local Fish-Ins/Events Listing (From State Chairs) CAG Store Specials (Barry Howard) Quarterly Bait/Rig Tip (For All Types Waters) Blast From the Past (Repost old NACA Stories) Trophy Room Any other ideas? This news letter could be mailed to our membership. Please give me a call if you would like to help produce the letter. Thanks AF Bob (315) 323-4632
  5. Please help me welcome Barry Howard . He is our newest Director on the CAG BOD. He has great things planed for the CAG Store. I can't wait to see the new items he will be putting on our shelves. Thanks AF Bob
  6. Please start making plans to attend the 2015 CCC. We have chosen Lake Storey in Galesburg Illinois. This looks like a great venue and the town is very excited to have CAG hosting an event there.

  7. Please help me in welcoming our new SC State Chair. Evan Cartabiano I know he will be hosting some great events in the warm south. Congrats! AF Bob
  8. 3 More Day for CCC sites. Please get them to me by close of business on the 13th. Thanks AF Bob
  9. Dean I loved the NACA. It was a great read from the start to the finish. CAG as a group needs to understand that there is strength in numbers. We need to join with carp anglers from around the world to demonstrate to our state leaders that carp fishing is a global sport and that our sport can and does bring anglers from around the globe to fish our waters. That is the only way we will ever get protection and recognition for carp in our country. Please keep in mind that we have members in our group from many areas outside of the USA. Those covers will help attract other carp anglers and carp sponsors from around the world. The NACA is and always will be about North American carp fishing first, these covers and stories from abroad just add a little flair to the coverage of our sport. Great Job AF Bob
  10. Andy You will always be welcome at my house. I think you will enjoy a long session on the St Lawrence
  11. Since 2005 Andy has worked to improve our organization. He has held many roles and helped numerous anglers across the country. He will be missed on the BOD but I know we all wish him the best as he starts a new path in his life. I'm sure we will see great things in his home state and maybe we will get the chance to fish with some of his new home made baits! Good Luck From All Of Us. AF Bob
  12. Site 1 Letter of intent to host the 2015 CCC. Myself, Chad Bettisch, and Brad Gant are offering to host this years CCC. We have chosen Lake Storey in Galesburg Illinois. This lake has 5.8 miles of shoreline and 133 surface acres of water. There is a campground on the lake with 157 campsites. The lake is 1 mile out of Galesburg where there is great shopping and hotels. By being the organizers we will get deals on hotel rooms, reserve a banquet location, welcoming party location, and a venue for fishing on Friday before the CCC. We will locate and mark all swims for the event. At our fish-in last fall the big carp of the event was 41 pounds. This lake has good numbers of large carp. Thank You Bill Hodge Illinois Chairman
