The North American Vintage Decoy & Sporting Collectibles Show, sponsored by the Midwest Decoy Collectors Association, was well-attended by our membership. Many nice calls changed hands over the week. Our CCAA annual call auction raised a record amount in donations to the club. Please check out the auction tab in this website for the prices realized. Thanks to all that participated!
The CCAA Fancy Call Contest drew many outstanding entries. Jeremiah Cluesman's carved and scrimshawed entry was awarded Best of Show and Matt Pierce took home Best of Amateur Class for his carved call. Bob Wiseman received the President's Award for his carved ivory call. Complete results are posted on our CCAA Facebook page.
Ryan Roosa's term as Secretary expired and John Fithian, of Burbank, California, was elected to that position. Many thanks to Ryan for his hard work and welcome aboard to John.
