Curling bonspiel

Bev Thomson and Joanne Brown got ready to sweep as Deb Cornell threw her rock down the ice Saturday during the men's and ladies' combined bonspiel held at the Fort Frances Curling Club. The trio were part of Nettie Kaufman's rink, who fell in Sunday's 'C' final to Tirzah Keffer.

Loppet skier

Megan Ross was all smiles as she came to the end of her race during the first-annual Rainy Lake Loppet on Sunday that was hosted by the Rainy Lake Nordic Ski Club at its Rocky Inlet trails and drew 20 skiers aged four-50+. Ross clocked in with a time of 17:31 to finish atop the 5K skate race.

Scoring chance

Noah Loveday of the Fort Frances Lakers looked to fire a shot past Dryden GM Ice Dogs' goalie Landon Pavlisin during last night's 4-3 shootout loss at the SIJHL's annual “Showcase” held at the Ice For Kids Arena. Fort Frances lost both of its games at the event, which saw all six SIJHL teams play two games apiece over the two days in front of junior, college, and pro scouts.

Metis dancing

An event dubbed “Paddle into the New Year,” presented by the Sunset Country Métis Council and the Métis Nation of Ontario Healing and Wellness Branch, was held Saturday afternoon at the Sunset Country Métis Hall here.
