Sorting Gap Marina opens tomorrow

The Sorting Gap Marina will open for the season tomorrow at 7 a.m.
“We’re just getting ready to get going,” manager Kim Badiuk said yesterday afternoon.
Badiuk and seven other local students were hired by the town to work there this summer.
“I’m hoping everyone will come down and enjoy the riverfront, and stop on by,” noted Badiuk.
The Sorting Gap Marina will be open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m., and Friday-Sunday from 7 a.m.-10 p.m., until the first week of September.
As in previous years, the Sorting Gap will be the place for boaters to pay for launch fees, docking fees, and gas, as well as for the public in general to get a treat while they’re strolling along the waterfront.
The daily launch fee is $6 for residents and $7 for non-residents, with the seasonal launch fee being $45 for residents and $55 for non-residents.
Dock slips also can be rented by the day, week, month, and season. For residents, the cost is $8/day, $30/week, $90/month, and $430/season.
For non-residents, the price is $9.60, $36, $108, and $500, respectively (these costs include taxes).
Badiuk noted there will be hard ice cream, candy, popsicles, pop, and other snacks for sale at the Sorting Gap Marina. “Bag tags” also will be sold there for $1 each closer to the end of the month.
(“Bag tags” also will be available at Canada Safeway, Pharmasave, Howarth’s Home Centre, East End Confectionery, Memorial Sports Centre, Civic Centre, and the Fort Frances Public Library).
