Emo Atoms compete in Dryden

The Emo Leafs were among the 22 teams that participated in the third-annual GM Dryden Atom ‘A’ hockey tournament this past weekend.

Other squads there included the MEC Bulldogs (Fort Frances), as well as ones from Atikokan, Ignace, Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Kenora, Keewatin, and host Dryden.

Bass championship to throw line in day earlier

The Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship will run from Thursday to Saturday instead of Friday to Sunday when it takes to the water for the fifth time in July.

The change was made to better accommodate the anglers, said Ray Engelbertink, media relations spokesman for the FFCBC, adding many of them face lengthy trips back to their hometowns after the final weigh-in.
