‘Quest’ entry forms now available


With all the sponsors now in place for this year’s “Quest for the Best” singing competition, contestants now can pick up entry forms for the popular event.

“I’ve already had a number of people come in,” Dawn Booth, co-ordinator of the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce, said this morning.

Contestants can pick up entry forms at the Chamber office (474 Scott St.), B93-FM Radio, Tammi’s Flower Garden, Rainy lake Hotel, the Memorial Sports Centre, and the Corner Closet in Emo.

Contestants must be at least 14 years old. The entry fee is $25 per person, whether they enter as a soloist or part of a duet.

Only the first 20 contestants will be accepted, although Booth noted no one has returned their form yet.

First-place prize is $500, followed by $300 for second place and $200 for third. Other categories, such as People’s Choice and Most Original, fetch $100 each.

Co-sponsored by the Chamber, the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship, and B93-FM Radio, the event will take place July 24 under the big tent at the Sorting Gap Marina.

Tickets will go on sale July 1. About 1,000 will be available for $12 in advance (at the Chamber office) and $15 at the door (if there’s any left).

But Booth noted tickets frequently sell out beforehand.
