Club News:
The April 23rd event at the Crosswalk Church in Hutto was a fantastic event and the catfish tank was popular with every kid that went fishing that day. The YMCA event in Round Rock was also extremely popular and the fishing tank was very busy for four hours. Both events were supported by numerous club members and everyone had a great time. The potential for rainy weather on April 30th caused the Hutto portion of the YMCA event to be postponed.
Couples Club Report:
The Couples Club has held two tournaments since the first one in March. The April tournament was on Fayette County and the May tournament was on Lake Bastrop.
