New manager planning to revamp local bowling alley

The local bowling alley will be seeing a plethora of changes over the coming year.

Plaza Lanes has welcomed in a new manager, Jesse Carmody, who is sprucing up the place and hopes to increase membership.

Carmody has a degree in Business Management from Fanshawe College and, upon graduating, has worked as a general manager at Boston Pizza here for the last three years.

Into the boards

Brady Wicklund of the Fort Frances Lakers, left, attempted to dig the puck free while he was checked into the boards by a Dryden GM Ice Dogs' defender during the third period of his squad's 6-3 loss in the SIJHL pre-season opener for both teams on Friday night at the Ice For Kids Arena.

Touching base

Barwick Blue Knights' shortstop Vaughan Wilson stepped on second base to record an out during his squad's 3-1 win over the Fort Frances Braves in the third-and-deciding game of the Rainy River District Fastball League championship series last Wednesday night at Couchiching.

Tough to tackle

The bigger they are, the harder they are to tackle. That's what this pair of Muskie football players found out as they struggled to bring their teammate to the ground during one of the team's practice sessions on Friday night at Fort High.

Shaking hands

The Barwick Blue Knights and Fort Frances Braves congratulated each other on a series well played at the conclusion of Barwick's 3-1 win in the third-and-deciding game of the Rainy River District Fastball League championship series last Wednesday night at Couchiching.
