February Meeting - BOZARD FORD & Ancient City Game Fish Challenge Kick-Off Party
On February 19, 2013 the membership of the ACGFA was graciously invited to Bozard Ford for our monthly meeting. Bozard Ford is our tournament headline sponsor once again this year, and constantly helps and supports ACGFA. The tournament was kicked off and information was provided to the meeting attendees on rule changes, tournament format changes, and exciting new features of the tournament for this year. However, the biggest announcement of the evening was that this year the Ancient City Game Fish Challenge will be fished IN MEMORY OF JERAD REVELS. Jerad Revels was a high school student, who tragically lost his life while working on his family farm before school this year. This event directly affected the St Augustine community, and this event will be a way to celebrate his life and remember Jerad Revels. At the event a new tournament banner was presented to the club, that will soon be making its way around to local St. Augustine businesses. Also, the club present tournament coins to the family members in attendance, these coins have tournament logos on one side and Jerad Revels remembrance on the other side. Please come out to support this event by fishing in the tournament, helping to work the tournaments, or providing ideas to make this one special event for the family and friends of Jerad Revels.
