Curling tour to make stop here

“Curling Across the Nation” is touring through Manitoba, Saskatchewan, North Dakota, Minnesota, and Northwestern Ontario from Nov. 14-27 as a way of supporting and promoting the sport of curling.

Rob Swan, who has curled in more than 270 different curling facilities in 10 countries in three years through “Curling Across the Nation,” has embarked on his fourth season.

Lakers among all-stars

Several Fort Frances Lakers were named to the teams that will compete in the SIJHL all-star game set for Nov. 29 at the Hippodrome in Eveleth, Mn.

The contest, which features a “Border Battle” format, will see the Canadian all-stars taking on the American all-stars.

Trophy named for former resident

Former Fort High grad Ed Davis has been honoured by Brock University.

Some 50 years ago, Davis started the hockey program at Brock, where he was general manager and coach for the first four years until an athletic director arrived.

He later was inducted as a “Builder” into Brock's Athletic Hall of Fame.

Davis also started Brock's intercollegiate curling program.

Lakers snap skid

It's been some tough sledding lately for the Fort Frances Lakers but things got a little brighter on Friday night.

Forward Jack Bernie had a big night as the Lakers downed the Minnesota Iron Rangers 5-3 at the Ice For Kids Arena to snap a five-game losing streak.

Muskie boys set for opener

The Ice For Kids Arena may have a sheen of rust on it when the Muskie boys' hockey team opens its NorWOSSA regular season this Tuesday night (Nov. 14) against the St. Thomas Aquinas Saints.

That's because the team hasn't played a game since winning the 'B'-side title at a tournament in Winnipeg back on Oct. 19-22.

Take a Hit tops teams

Take a Hit was the lone team to garner the maximum six points in Fort Frances Women's Volleyball League action last night.

How I Set Your Mother, No Diggity, and Scared Hitless all earned five points from their two matches.

Kiss My Pass, Safe Sets, and Bumping Uglies each took three points on the night.
