Jamestown, KY – Today, State Dock, a Suntex Marina, announced a partnership with Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour angler Bradley Roy. The 10-year pro from Lancaster, KY, will actively promote the Lake Cumberland State Dock facility located in Jamestown, KY.
Roy grew up fishing Lake Cumberland. His annual Bradley Roy High School Open fishing tournament is held there and had a field of 200 boats in October of 2019. The eighth annual tournament will on Cumberland the weekend of October 17th.
As part of the partnership, the State Dock is providing lodging for the winner of the Fish with Bradley Sweepstakes. One lucky winner will spend two nights at the State Dock on Lake Cumberland and a day on the water with Bradley. Entry into the sweepstakes is free at www.bradleyroy.com.
In addition to competing at the highest level of bass fishing, Roy is well-known for giving back. Aspiring anglers from his home state compete in his High School Open each year for two spots in the Bassmaster National Championship and compete for college scholarships and prizes in a unique catch, weigh, and release format on day two of that event.
Through a partnership with Louisville-based USA Cares (www.usacares.org), since 2016, Roy has hosted annual benefit tournaments to assist the organization with its efforts to provide financial and advocacy assistance to post-9/11 active duty US military service personnel, veterans and their families.
“We are thrilled to partner with a true professional like Bradley Roy,” said Suntex’s Southeastern Marketing Specialist Shanalda Burden. “Bradley does so much to give back to his community and makes the angling community in Kentucky very proud. We love that his roots are deep at Lake Cumberland and that his annual high school tournament brings so many people to the lake.”
State Dock, a Suntex Marina, will immediately become involved with both of those initiatives and join Roy’s current sponsors helping him give back to his community.
