Hello All,

Please help in sharing a warm welcome to our clubs new President Bob Giordano. For those of you that missed his Platform letter, I have included it down below.

Huge thanks for stepping up, I wish you a great 2 year or longer term.

My name is Bob Giordano or to my friends AF Bob. I have been an active member of CAG since 2005. I won't bore you with a long drawn out speech, it is really quite simple - I love carp fishing, CAG, and the many friends that I have meet along the way.

I'm a retired Air Force Senior Master Sargent, and I have spent many years working to promote carp fishing and carp protection. I'm a member of the New York State Fish Advisory Board, the FISHCAP Board, and I'm also the President of Wounded Warriors Outdoor Adventures. I have started and hosted many carp fishing events to include the New England Yankee Challenge, the Can-AM, and the Seaway 6 Pack Throw Down. I have also worked with the St Lawrence River JR Carp Tournament since 2005. In the past I have served as a State Chair in both MA and NY. Those positions gave me experience working with large groups of carp anglers who don't always see eye to eye or share common goals.

I believe that our members should always have fun and treat each other with respect.

I believe that teaching children to carp fish is vital to our future.

I believe with increased membership and carp protection, recognition will follow.

I believe that all of our members should promote our mission statement at all times.

I believe with increased membership, the powers to be will have to provide carp protection, and recognition as a true sport fish.

I believe that our group is in a much better place today because of our current President and BOD.

...and last but not least, I believe carp fishing can be used as a tool to help our Wounded Warriors and their families heal.

If elected, here are some of the items I would like to purue :

I would like to see more regional carp events for kids.

I would like to see more of our members attend the St Lawrence River JR Carp Tournament.

I would like to see an easier way for our older members to join/renew their memberships without having to use a PC.

I would also love to see the fish I love most be recognized as the true sport fish it is!

I know there are many great anglers in our group who should be considered for this position but I would be very honored to serve as your next president.

Thank You,

AF Bob
