We had a packed house at May's meeting for two reasons: 1) Our much awaited NCLA t-shirts had arrived and were being brought tonight for distribution and 2) Leiza Fitzgerald, one of the first female speakers we have had in a long time was on the docket to speak to us about the Coastal Conservation Association and the STAR Tournament they are hosting.
Mary Sue and Pam (in the background) are going through the box of t-shirts to make sure no one walks away with the wrong one.
Looks like Anne's pretty happy with hers.

Happy to see a few of the gals wore their NCC t-shirts. We competed in the Nature Coast Challenge Kayak Fishing Tournament a weekend earlier in Yankeetown, Florida. NCC t-shirts were in our Captain's Bags.
But the highlight of the evening was our guest speaker, Leiza Fitzgerald, Charter Boat Captain, Tournament Anglers, Top Lady Angler in the Inshore Fishing Arena, and the Tournament Director for the inaugural STAR Fishing Tournament for Florida's West Coast. She came Tuesday evening to tell us about it and how it works.
All NCLA members received and e-mail with a link to the video that covered the entire presentation from beginning to end so in case anyone was unable to attend the meeting, they can view it remotely.
At the end of the presentation, Leiza gave a way some great door-prizes.
It was a very informative meeting/presentation and we are all anxious to get registered and on the water to start catching some fish. Wouldn't it be nice of one of our own NCLA members walked away with a prize or two?
We're just a bunch of ladies having fun on the water.
