The annual two-day Naicatchewenin First Nation Fall Bass & Walleye Classic on Northwest Bay over the weekend was another great success.
Although the weather was not the best, the 23-team field had a good time.
When the final weigh-in was completed, the top team was Jeremy Shypit and Dave Byrnes with a 17.55-pound total.
Vince Godbout and Ron Tucker placed second (17.20), followed by the team of Paul Visser and Mike Graham in third (16.93).
The weekend was filled with amazing food, hospitality, and good times. The organizers would like to thank all sponsors and everyone else who was part of this weekend.
And they pledge to see next year even bigger and better!

Sympathy is extended to the family and friends on the passing of Elisabeth (Betty) Zimmerman.
She was a wonderful kind and caring woman filled with faith and love for the many people in her life.

Many people in our community will remember Bob and Betty Grynol living in Devlin for many years.
They were honoured with a going away party at St. Mary’s Church in Fort Frances on Sunday. A packed church basement enjoyed a delicious meal, along with music, words of kindness, and best wishes.
The Grynols are moving to Milton, Ont. to live closer to their three daughters and families.
The district wishes you all the best on this new chapter in your lives.

I thought it was the dryer that shrunk my clothes.
Turns out it was the refrigerator!
