Fantastic Finish to CBA Regular Season!
« on: October 25, 2009, 07:11:17 PM »

WOW! That is all I can say! I am not sure if it is the format, the trophy at the end of the year, or just the competition level that brought out the best in everyone today, but what a showing!

The weather, rain and some sleet along with mid 40 degree temps, tried to hammer us down, but everyone stuck it out and made the best of the conditions! Some great fish were caught, and came in, when I thought it might be a bad weigh-in! For those bass guys that quit fishing when hunting season comes around....they have no idea what they are missing!

Taking 3rd and helping to solidify a position in the Top 8 "and" locking down the "Top Lady Angler of 2009" award(sponsored by AL WEST Boat Service), were the team of Bryan Leck and Jeanne Gizzi ! Jeanne caught the only fish they had to weigh in, a 3lb 2oz Spot, grabbing the top lady award by a mere 5 points! 5 points means one position! What a close race between Sandi Roberts(her first year competing) and Jeanne(a well seasoned bass fishing professional)! We are proud of all the ladies that competed this year!


Placing Second, and pushing a few of us out of the Top 8  ~xyz, was the team of Greg Gizzi and Jim McCormick! Greg needed a top 5 finish to climb into the Top 8 Championship and, along with Jim, did just that! Congratulations Greg and Jim!


Winning this final tournament with 5lbs 14ozs,(with both contenders on this team needing a win to make the Top 8 Championship!), was the team of Jared Nikirk and John Santos! A super massive task was at hand with the weather conditions and the competition they had to deal with! Without a win, both guys are sitting at home and waiting for reports about how the Top 8 are doing!  What a great victory for 2 of CBA's finest competitors!


Congratulations Jared and John! Awesome, Awesome, Finish!

Special thanks to TY-REX Construction, Inc. (General Contracting-719-390-2855), AL WEST Boat Service(719-635-2426), Smith Chiropractic(719-390-5404), Gift of Touch Massage(719-331-4656), Castaway Rods (719-491-2272), Sure-Life Fish Care Products, Colorado Computer Services, and Outlaw Bait and Tackle(719-227-7992) for sponsoring CBA throughout this past season! A super special thanks to Ferguson GMC (719-596-5005), for sponsoring the traveling trophy!

Top 8 Championship is set and will begin next weekend on October 31st, weather providing! The match-ups will be as stated below:

1st vs. 8th              Jim McCormick-JaredNikirk
2nd vs. 7th              Jeanne Gizzi-John Santos
3rd vs. 6th               Greg Gizzi-Sam Heckman
4th vs. 5th               Lamont Gizzi-Bryan Leck

YES!! We have 2 women in the Top 8, and they fished against some of the top fishermen in the state, maybe in the west, in order to earn their positions! Go get um' ladies!

Who will be next to get their name on this trophy? Or will the name stay the same?
