With the new school year about to kick off, we wanted to take minute and reiterate our thanks to all of you that supported the OU Fishing Club this past year. THANK YOU!
The money that was raised through this winter's Thousand's Strong Campaign helped propel our collegiate anglers through the spring. We wrapped up ACA competition (Association of Collegiate Anglers) in May, finishing 44th out of 211 schools! Thanks to you, we were able to send more student teams into competition, which assuredly boosted our rankings. We've also been able to purchase some critical team gear and promotional items, as well as send several anglers to the 2017 Bassmaster Classic in Houston TX, where among other things, they helped host a children's fishing contest.
The summer has remained busy for the OU Fishing Club! Aside from the typical planning that goes into club activities and the 2017/2018 tournament season, our anglers have made guest appearances across the state, helped support several non-profit organizations, competed in local-level tournaments, and have been actively recruiting for the new year. We'll be starting this season with more members than we've ever had! In typical angler fashion, club officers haven't wasted a minute, and our first meeting of the school year has already been scheduled for next week.
Thanks again for all your help and support - we wouldn't be able to do this without you!
