A handicap-accessible dock for anglers is being installed at the Carmody Park boat launch in the town of Gardner. The Sturgeon Bay Open Bass Tournament working collectively with two other organizations raised more than $3,600 for the project. President JJ Malvitz explains the benefits of the new dock.
Wheelchair Whitetails and Walleyes for Tomorrow were the other two groups to donate towards the handicapped access at the dock. Malvitz estimates the total cost of the improvement to be about $7,000. The handicap-accessible dock is in place right now with the final touches being conducted to it, according to Malvitz.
