5Th Annual Michigan Curry/fundraiser/gear Swap/membership Drive

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

What an amazing day today for the Michigan Scene. With the horrible weather that we got pounded with today including an ice storm followed by more than 5 inches of snow thus far our guys and gals still made this event our best ever :)

We had 24 folks in attendance.

After socializing from 10am-12ish we set our calendar of events for 2011 with 6 official Fish-ins. To be posted on our calendar soon. :)

Then after a bit of discussion about numerous topics we jumped right into the raffle fundraiser. I can't thank everyone enough for contributing to our best ever raffle. All in all we had 70 raffle items including many set of 3 rods, alarms, sets of top quality knives, 2 chartered fishing trips and much much more!!

We raised a record $1464 for our local scene and with the money we bought 17 CAG memberships ($425 for CAG :) ) for those that signed up and the rest of the money goes into our events, programs and prizes for the year including a Gold Carp pin for the biggest fish caught during all of our official calendar events. B)

We also helped CAG raise $127 from sales of CAG merchandise :)

I'm proud of each and everyone of my fellow Michiganders. You guys and gals rock!!

Hope to have pics up in a few days.

I'd also like to Thank Resistance Tackle for sending out a package of goodies for this event. You rock!!

I'd also like to thank The Lil Dipper owner Richard for his extremely generous raffle items and all the Yummy Bakery goodies he brought.

After all business was wrapped up we feasted on plates full of a special Tikka Masala Curry and cheesy Nan Bread (thanks Kev for the Nan) and washed it down with some fine beverages. We also had Jets Pizza for the youngins and Don :lol:

And then we had dessert....yummy chocolate cake and cannolies :)

See you all on the banks April 2nd for our season opener at Lake Erie.

Thank you,

Andy Sprinkle

CAG President

Hey guys, just checked the mail today as our mail lady was late in delivering yesterday. I opened up a package with a whole bunch of the new Korda DVD and some Big Carp tackle Decals. I'll bring these and distribute them during our season opener here in a few weeks at Erie.

Thank You Big Carp Tackle and Dave!!
