  2. Hello everyone, this Larry.

    I going to try to raise some cash for CAG. I have a Snapple bottle filled with change. Each paid angler for the CCC will get one free guess as to how much money is in the bottle. Each additional guess will cost you $1, buy as many as you would like. The angler with the guess closest to the amount in the bottle without going over wins the $$. ALL money collected from this will be donated to Cag. The change in the bottle is donated by me. HINT: change in the bottle greater than $50 and less than $100. Feeling lucky?

    We are less than 60 days from the 2019 CCC in Joliet Illinois. The date is September 28th on the DesPlaines river in downtown Joliet. We have multiple bait and tackle companies as well as carp fishing clubs that have stepped up to donate prizes for this event. We are always looking to add donors to our list as well. I have ordered not only the trophies but, the illustrious Carp King buckle will be on hand and ready for the angler with the biggest carp of the event. There will also be custom one off " carp art" pieces for each section winner as well as a one of a kind Gyotaku art piece by artist Jeff Conroy. The venue in Joliet will hold alot of anglers and those eager to secure their spots in this years CCC so far are... Anthony Hartung Frank Rink Bogsan Bucur Dick Laubscher Mark Pinner Rick Slinker Tony Stout Christopher Labucki ( 2018 CCC Champ. ) Walter Wheeler Jeff Conroy Larry Seeman sign up is open and ready

    With Bogdan on the entry list the odds for everyone else winning just went up. LOL!
