2015 Spring Crappie Fest

The 2015 AZCA Spring Crappie Fest will be held the weekend of Friday, April 17th thru Sunday, April 19th at Roosevelt Lake - Grapevine Group Site – Coot and Grebe Loops. This is our club's annual spring campout, fishing derby and open meeting. Spring Crappie Fest is open to all AZCA Club Members and their families along with registered users of this website and their families. Please join us for a fun filled weekend. All group events will be held in the common area of the Coot Loop.

The Coot and Grebe Loops each have its own centrally located restrooms, water spigots, one 110v outlet, a community fire pit, covered ramadas w/ picnic tables and charcoal BBQ grill. Plenty of room for a good time! Surrounding the center gathering area in each camping loop are plenty of individual campsites, each with parking, a picnic table and a fire pit. There are NO electric or water hookups at the campsites.  Attached below is the REQUIRED Camping form - please fill it out, print and bring it with you to give to the Camp Host.  One thing to note, both the Coot and Grebe Loops will be available to all registered users of this site beginning on 3pm Friday, April 17th.

With Spring Crappie Fest rapidly approaching, we would like to hear from any prospects that plan to attend the meeting with the intent to join the club. As stated in the bylaws a prospect must have attended one meeting within the the last 12 months to eligible:

Amendment C: After attending a qualified meeting (being a meeting open to the public or a closed meeting as a
guest of an AZCA member) prospective members may attend any other meeting within one year to be voted in as
a club member.

Please speak up so your name can be added to the ballot :dance:

For Those interested, Saturday night (time TBD) we will be having a gentlemans or gentle-ladies Poker Tournament. $5 entry with ALL monies being paid out to the winners. I will supply all the cards, chips, dealer buttons, etc needed. It will be tournament style your $5 buying you in for 5,000 in chips. I will design the blind structure based on the total number of players and for how long we want it to run (also TBD based on when we start). I have included a good link for some training if you are new to the game, otherwise just show up and have fun.
