Member Robyn Hughes, a kayaker and braille consultant who has a visual impairment, used a print braille graphics software program called Quick Tac to draw the Bridge II Sports "bridge archways" and paddle with kayak out of graphic braille dots. It also looks very much like the accessible dock at Lake Crabtree County Park! This was displayed on Bridge II Sports Weekly, a website for disabled athletes. Robyn’s design can be seen here: https://www.bridge2sports.org/newsletter/

Our very own Bob Jacobson also wrote a beautiful article on Robyn in the January 7th edition of the Baltimore Jewish Times. The featured article is available through this link:
