2021 Fish Fry and Crawfish Boil

THANK YOU OAKRIDGE

The 2021 fish fry/crawfish boil gathering was a great success. Hats off to the chefs that stepped up to help cook and serve food and those who set up and cleaned up. Thanks to all who brought desserts and everyone who enjoyed their meal. We raised $410 and 315 pounds of food for the Columbus Food Pantry. Again, a big thank you to our giving community.

Mark Lange with Texas Parks and Wildlife put on a presentation to landowners regarding the doe tags/hunting rules for the upcoming deer season. If you were not present you need to send your Name, email address, and Section # and Tract # to Mark Lange at mark.lange@tpwd.texas.gov as soon as possible.

Mark has received information for 47 properties and all 47 have a property created in LMA. 13 of those have done everything on their end and are all set up. 3 more have accepted the landowner invite but not the WMA invite yet. Mark says the mapping was easy with the uniformity of properties and that most had clearly visible boundaries. Mark says he had zero problems with the LMA mapping. Mark asks that everyone follow through so we can move along with the process.

Once again, a big thank you to everybody.
