ccvf Golf ClassicThe Golf Classic was held at the Pinnacle Golf and Boat Club , Mabank, Texas. Participants formed either on 4-person Teams or they played individually on this challenging course.
This year the Foundation honored Veterans who served in, or during, the longest war in United States history, Vietnam. Our Country’s goal was to stop the spread of communism, not by winning the war, but by bolstering the South Vietnamese government until they could take over. Our soldiers, their average age of twenty-one, spent about two-hundred and forty combat days per year in a harsh environment and with conflicting rules of engagement, with over 58,200 persons killed in action. The Vietnam War divided our Nation, while on the battleground our troops fought in jungles against an often-unrecognizable enemy. The 60’s era legacy might read as a contradiction; empowerment and polarization, resentment and liberation – this “gray twilight” prejudicially greeting our troops upon their return from battle.
We spotlighted two gracious Veterans for their service but we would be remiss by not recognizing all those among us who answered our Country’s call to duty during the Vietnam era.
Participantion was open to the public and included former military members as honored guests. There was a shot gun start, special entertainment and a lunch provided. The generous support of this Classic will allow the CCVF to financially support our military veterans in their rehabilitation and recovery.

The CCVF had an excellent turnout and provided a great evening of Family Fun on Friday, June 30, 2017! before the 2017 Air Show! The pilots were there in their flight suites and the young (grand) children got their shirts autographed and spent time with Jacquie B, Beth Jenkins, Greg Howell and others. The weather cooperated and the food was VERY GOOD, again! ! ! Thank you for supporting this event! !
Thunder Over Cedar creek lake Air show
THE BOATERS ANCHORED TO WATCH THE AIR SHOW ARE AGAIN ADVISED THAT THEY MUST STAY OUT OF THE FLIGHTBOX AS MARKED BY THE BIG RED BOUYS AND THE RED AND WHITE FLAGS! If there are violators of these MANDATORY safety limits, the FAA is WELL WITHIN their rights to immediately cancel the Air Show. We understand that it is more fun to be close to the action, but let us remember that SAFETY IS ALWAYS FIRST ! ! This is a unique Air Show being over water and there are requirements that must be met! ! Also, the knowledge of boating operating rules, and of common sense while on the water, seemed to be lacking in the past - when traveling in the crowded area, with boats at anchor in deep water, likely rough water; please slow that boat down ! ! ! ! The vintage aircraft thundering over the lake, the extreme aerobatic routines of our high-performance aircraft, the precision of the multi-plane flights, the vintage warriors of the sky and performances after the sun sets, have made this a unique Air Show! !
Listen to the commentary LIVE on KCKL (95.9FM) during the Air Show for all the details on pilots and the planes they fly. There is a continuous feed of information on Facebook and on Twitter to keep folks on the shore and on the water current with the acts performing.Buy Tickets
