ANNOUNCEMENT OF
First Annual Cedar Creek White Bass Tournament
In Association with Cedar Creek white bass specialists DENNIS CHRISTIAN and GEORGE (FastGuy) MALIK and BIGCRAPPIE.COM GUIDE SERVICE

On May 18, 2019, the FIRST ANNUAL CEDAR CREEK VETERANS FOUNDATION (“CCVF”) white bass tournament will be held. It will be an individual tournament with categories for adults and children. Children ages eight to twelve may register in either the Children’s Division or the Adult Division but not both. If they register in the Adult Division, they will be required to pay the $50.00 adult registration fee. The location is Cedar Creek Lake at Log Cabin boat ramp and grounds.

In addition to promoting family fun through fishing and just being in the great outdoors, the “HOOKED ON VETERANS” white bass tournament is to raise money for CCVF. This is the organization which also supports the Cedar Creek community and raises money through the annual 4th Of July Thunder Over Cedar Creek Lake Air Show. CCVF’s mission is to honor the courageous men and women who have served to protect our freedoms by providing financial support for those agencies responsible for their care and nurture. The three beneficiaries supported by CCVF are Fisher House, Hope For The Warriors and Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. CCVF is a 501c3 and is led by an all-volunteer team of Board of Directors and Officers. All proceeds from their fundraisers go to support these charities.

In addition to the fishing tournament, we will have a free fish-fry meal for all contestants immediately following the weigh-in. We will have door prizes, an auction to add to the money raised and recognition of tournament winners starting as we finish our meal.

WHERE: Log Cabin boat ramp and grounds
WHEN: May 18, 2019
TIME: Registration at 5 AM
TOURNAMENT HOURS: 6:00 AM – 12:00 PM

I invite all my TFF friends to enter. George, Chuck and I will be involved in organizing and carrying out the tournament. I will register so I can help folks in my boat find fish, but will not submit fish for weigh-in myself. Your comments between now and tournament day are welcome. This announcement will be kept at the top of the white bass/hybrid/striper section when we get closer to tournament date.

I'll have my son with me. Can you please confirm that the following questions will be omitted from the exam:

I haven't fished Cedar Creek in years. And would welcome the reason to travel there and fish again.
I'm going to ask my Dad (42 years in the Army - Retired) and my Son (9 yr old) if they want to go. But logistically it will be tough. School is still in session and we would have to drive on a good bit of I-35 to get there. Leaving later in the afternoon on a Friday, having to drive on I-35 & through Austin, then a 0500 check-in Sat with a kid eeks But willing to give it a shot.

For future planning efforts, Just as an FYI, school gets out for the summer at the end of May, just 2-weeks later than when this tournament is planned. It might make a difference in getting more kids (at least the ones that are not local) to participate.

Great! Good luck! I won't be competing but will try to put 2 or 3 others in the boat with me on some good fish.
