Fifth Quarter Fishing Tournament canceled

Over $120,000 in community support annually for Sturgeon Bay causes could be gone after former Clippers and NFL player Casey Rabach was forced to cancel his annual fishing tournament and dinner this summer. Rabach and his wife Nicole have organized the annual event with other NFL Alumni to help support his Fifth Quarter Foundation, which pumps thousands of dollars into projects benefiting youth education, recreation, and women’s health. Its usual docking spot located near Stone Harbor Resort is unavailable due to the city leasing the slips on a permanent basis.  In the past, the Rabachs have moved the affected boats at their expense so the tournament could go on as planned. This year, Rabach says there was not the same level of cooperation between the slip holders and the foundation.



The city currently has verbiage in the contract with the slip holders for the Cruiser Yacht Show.


The Fifth Quarter Foundation would like to see similar verbiage put in for their event.

Rabach hopes a deal can be made in time for the tournament to take place next year. A call to Sturgeon Bay City Administrator Josh VanLieshout for comment has not been returned.
