Speaking of great causes (read previous post), I had the pleasure of attending the first CORE Health Foundation’s ADA Wheelchair Accessible Fishing Pier Committee Meeting last week. The CORE Health Foundation is in the process of raising approximately $400,000 in donations to build a wheelchair accessible fishing pier on Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) in downtown Austin.

This is a great cause and we are excited about doing what we can to help. In fact, if you are familiar with the Kayak Angler’s Tournament Series (KATS), we will be hosting a separate fishing tournament for those that didn’t qualify for the Classic. A portion of those proceeds will be donated to the cause. However, let’s not wait until then to help out, if you are interested in doing your part or simply want to spread the word, click here for additional details. – Roland @ACK
