Logging competition

Competitors from around the region put their skillful hand and strength to the test during the 42nd-annual loggers' competition on Friday morning during the Emo Fair.

From chair carving to the classic axe chop, several competitions tested both the mind and body of the 10 loggers competing for first place.

Cadenes, Loews make for all-Atikokan family finish

After coming oh so close—third, fourth, and fifth place finishes the past four years—Rene and Debora Cadene blew the doors off the Atikokan Bass Classic last weekend.

The day one leaders brought in a 24-pound bag on Saturday to push their two-day catch to 46.88 lbs, the most ever for the ABC and over four and a half pounds ahead of the runners-up, Austin and Shaina Loew.

The Couchiching Lady Raiders plunder their way into the semi-final with a win over the Northwest Bay Beavers.

The Raiders came out charging hard last Tuesday night with some aggressive base running and swiped multiple stolen bases during the game.  It could have been a costly strategy for the Raiders as they tried stretching out for extra bags led directly to three outs.
