Seeking our 2014 CCC Organizer and Venue....

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

At this time we do not have a venue or an organizer for this years CCC. We could really use the help this year.

Is there anyone willing to take charge and organize this years CCC?

We need a venue that will handle 60 anglers.

Any interest, please post here or pm me.

Who can organize CCC ? Director, State Chair, or CAG Members ? & list of things to do to organize CCC ?

Hello Rana,

We have had Directors, State Chairs, CAG members without titles, and Biz owners all take a crack at organizing the CCC. They all received help from multiple people in many different ways.

The CCC's basic definition is:

Held Every September, and also known as the "Chicago Carp Classic" this friendly tournament is followed by the annual meeting of CAG. The CCC hit the road a few years ago and was re-branded the "CAG Carp Classic" to take our annual meeting to members in different locations across the country.

The Tournament part can be organized by any one of our members who has an appropriate venue in mind that can host 60 anglers. The annual meeting is conducted by a Board of Director or Directors and works with the Tournament organizer in setting up that part of the event.

It's really a team effort, once we have someone who wishes to take on the role of organizer and has a venue in mind that can hold 60 or more anglers, has nearby lodging and has a location for for the annual meeting.

By team effort, this means that the President, Treasurer, Webmaster, Events Director, Secretary, other Directors and local members all play a part in assisting in one way or another the CCC organizer in making the event a success.

The list of things to do to organize the CCC:

  1. Find an Organizer
  2. Secure the venue through the appropriate permits
  3. Obtain Tournament insurance (club already has)
  4. Make sure there is adequate lodging nearby for 60 anglers
  5. look into options for where the annual meeting will be held
  6. Look into food and drink options for the annual meeting
  7. Work on prizes and trophies for the winners and raffle
  8. Determine if we need weigh marshals and how if so how many
  9. Determine who can help locally and what tasks they get assigned
  10. Communicate with the BOD and determine who does what for the event....webmaster sets up registration, facebook page, etc. Treasurer works on budget and reimbursement or purchasing needed items, Secretary works on the meeting part, events director can help with securing prizes, as mentioned, it is a team effort. The Organizer mainly makes sure that everyone does their part and puts the pieces of the puzzle together.
  11. The Day before the event we traditionally have a "corn boil" or pre-fishing opportunities. Thought should go into what the organizer would like for that part...something fun and social.

The dates are traditionally on the last weekend of September, the Registration costs are usually $40-$75 dependent on budget and expenses.

Friday would be a social, a corn boil or meet at a specific location

Saturday is the Tournament concluded with the annual meeting, awards and raffle

Do you think these guys can handle all those fish? I would imagine the rules should be changed to accomodate the boilie chunkers. lol
