Muskies needed for fair float

Jim Scheibler is trying to promote Muskie sports of all kinds.

One way he will be doing that is setting up a booth in the arena at this year’s Rainy River Valley Agricultural Fair, running in Emo today through Saturday.

He also has made a float for the parade on Saturday and hopes current Muskie athletes—and even alumni—will come and join in.

Great eight for Wilson

It’s the story that won’t stop because Tylar Wilson apparently can’t be stopped.

The Fort Frances driver is now a perfect eight-for-eight for the season after capturing the feature the past two weeks in the Street Stocks division of the Borderland Racing Association.

Winners galore at horse show

Equestrian excellence was the order of the day throughout this past weekend as the Borderland Quarter Horse Show took over the Emo Fairgrounds.

Riders from within and outside of the Rainy River District put their four-legged friends through the paces in an attempt to impress the judges at the annual event.

Here is the list of the high point award winners from the event:

Lindberg selected for NWO hall

An Olympic medalist with a Fort Frances pedigree will join the elite athletic performers in the history of this region.

It was announced last Wednesday (Aug. 5) that Fort native Chris Lindberg will be among the newest members entering the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame as part of the 34th annual induction ceremonies on Sept. 26 at the Valhalla Inn in Thunder Bay.

Women’s soccer semis tonight

Enough with the rehearsals. It’s showtime.

The Borderland Soccer League women’s division gets down to playoff business tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Struchan Gilson Soccer Pitch with a pair of semi-final matchups.

It will be a Tyson v. Douglas-type confrontation when the heavily-favoured La Place Rendez-Vous U-18 Voyageurs face Boston Pizza.
