Congratulations to the ATC Winners!

Recommended Posts

It appears from viewing the leader board that the winners and repeat Champs are yet again The dynamic duo of Christian and Cesar from the SoCal Texas team! Big Congrats on an amazing repeat victory in one of the deepest field of participants in many years. Incredible competition and 2nd place showing again from August and Derek of the Momma's Boys. I did'nt think it was possible for these two teams to dominate the tournament 2 years in a row! Great job guys!

Thanks i still remember a long time ago when me and my brother first started carp fishing and you lets us borrow a baiting needle. all we had was a small wire straightened hook.  Thank you for your kind words. I hope your and your son are still catching great fish. Maybe one will see some post from you on here. With some of your guys great catches big buffs and carp i use to look at all the time with awe

Terrific win. It was cool to follow the event through Facebook posts and Leaderboard updates.

Lots of 30s! And impressively big buffs and grassies!

Is there a ATC Facebook page? I couldn't find anything from over the  weekend on the CAG Facebook page.....

Where should we be looking?

Another great ATC. I'm sorry I missed it. I do plan on attending next year. To our members , this is a can't miss event. Great fishing, new friends and the downtown Austin, TX area. You really couldn't ask for a better carp fishing get away. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to host this outstanding event. Make plans to attend next year's ATC. You will be happy you did!

sadly no CAG dropped the ball had another group here locally host the tournament for them they changed a lot of things around (from total weight to big 6 even have it a month later march instead of february) and now we have to tourney i heard the locals let them know they werent going to host it again.  they might make their own i heard. but at the end of the day CAG upper body didnt press to have another ATC at least it seems that way hopefully they get their stuff together. ATC has been ran by one or two CAG members in the past with assitance i dont know why it didnt happen again. Thats how many CAG members from around the US met each other with this social/  tournament event even one year off doesnt sit right ☹️ if i didnt have so many obligations with church my kids being a coach I wouldve been all for it to step up and do it. I have swims that can be made with a little work that can make it easier for marshalling. sorry for the long reply

I'm not sure how you come to your conclusion that CAG 'dropped the ball'?

Chad and others tried to find people to take over running the ATC but in the end we had no takers for 2020. 

I've personally talked to several folk and there are still conversations ongoing but it won't happen until someone steps up to run it.

I helped Neil Stern the last few years that he did the ATC. It's a lot of work, and takes time and a cultivating of relationships with both the City of Austin and the rowing club.  You have to work closely with the city officials that control parking permits, coordinate with the rowing club for buoy placements, etc.  Neil had to take several trips from here in Weatherford down to Austin (a 4 hour drive) to meet with city officials and hammer out details.  I myself donated all the swim signs, score cards, lake maps showing swims and scale certification decals.  There's a lot of expenses that people don't think about.  The guys in Austin did an excellent job helping him the last few years that he put it on, even before they took it over.  Ideally, we need to find someone who lives in or near Austin (preferably retired) who can continue working with the city and devote the time needed to make it a successful event.  I know if Neil was doing better he'd be all over it.

I hate to see it stop for any reason.  It was a very good PR opportunity for the club.  Just my two cents worth...

For any complainers out there, we are in DESPERATE need of volunteers. The word has gone out many times. No one applied for the President's job that was posted.  No one stepped forward for the Treasurer's job. No takers for the Event's Director.  Clubs like this work only if you have the volunteers. I'm amazed we can still do what we do with the few people we have on the BOD.

Maybe start with dropping the ball here. CAG tourney i don’t see it on here..... Biggest longest running USA carp tourney we should’ve had something in place worst case scenario. There is so many groups that keep rising and not to mention ACS but without boots on the ground and without great social media presence other then Facebook We  will keep declining. We have to keep up with times and we’re not. CAG has always been the foundation and groups have always branched out of us. Members will keep leaving I’ve been here for a while not planning on leaving (unless I get the boot) but this is no where what it used to be. For us to not to keep this tourney going even one year can be bad for us. Maybe I’m tripping over nothing. I hope we can thrive and have a busy forum again one day. 

If anyone steps up to direct the tourney I’ll definitely help in anyway possible. Clean swims, make swims help make food or whatever.

 

Thank you to all the volunteers that are keeping this group going. this used to be my go to place on the internet everyday, I met so many people on here in real life and made some close friends. I don’t want you guys to feel like I’m bashing the club or your guys efforts it’s more a overall concern of it going away.

I didn’t know how Neil was doing I hope he feels and gets better.
 

I know all the efforts you guys put forth into it. I had the pleasure of fishing two of those tourneys organized by Neil had a great time even though it was hard for me to find partners to fish with.
