The Lions Journey for Sight leaves Flin Flon Wednesday morning from the Victoria Inn for the annual snowmobile fund raiser for the Lions Eye Bank of Manitoba and Northwest Ontario. Organizer Ian Mullin from the Bowsman Lions Club says about 30 snowmobiles will be traveling in the north. He says if everything goes according to plan there’ll be group going out of Thompson on Tuesday coming down to Snow Lake and the rest of the riders will be arriving in Flin Flon Tuesday night. He adds Wednesday morning the groups will leave Flin Flon and Snow Lake and meet up in Cranberry Portage and then continue down to The Pas where they will stay overnight.
The snowmobilers will leave The Pas Thursday morning and will be joined by others from across the province as they arrive in Brandon Saturday in a journey that raises around 100 thousand dollars annually for the Eye Bank.
