September 15, 2010, BAINBRIDGE, GA – Governor Sonny Perdue and Georgia Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Chris Clark will be in Bainbridge on Wednesday, October 6 for a ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand opening of the Bainbridge’s new mega ramps.

Bainbridge will then host the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series Regional Tournament on October 16 and 17, followed by the FLW BFL Regional Tournament on October 21-23.
