Fishing tournament for disabled veterans this weekend

GILFORD — The New England Paralyzed Veterans Association and Northern Bass Supply will be hosting a fishing tournament for disabled veterans over Columbus Day Weekend.
Participating veterans will be staying at Silver Sands resort in Gilford and will go fishing for the day on Lake Winnipesaukee, then they will go on to Edge of Woods campground where they will join John Scannell and Tiny Lafontaine – CEO of the bass trail of the New England Paralyzed Veterans – to have prizes, food, beverages and lots of laughs. Edge of Woods will make the facility available to the veterans as well as the public.
The NEPVA offers two bass trail tournaments annually. One is held at the Charles River in Boston and the second is held in Moultonboro at camp Robindel.
