Flin Flon City Council held their meeting earlier tonight at council chambers. Among the highlights was the grand prize draw for the Experience Flin Flon contest where people could enter on the Flin Flon Rocks facebook page.
people were encouraged to like the link and that is how they would be entered to win the contest valued at over $20,000.00. Congratulations to Tatianna Alexander from Saskatoon who ended up being the grand prize winner.
Councillor Karen Mckinnon says the contest was a big success." It went very, very well and it drew attention to Flin Flon and what our city has to offer. It also helped promote the Blueberry Music gathering that will be happeninig here in August. How it came about was, we were trying to think of an idea, why you would want to come to Flin Flon and what is here. When I attended the tourism awards in Winnipeg in the fall, I thought we have so much to offer here, so that was the whole purpose. I brought the idea to city council and we ran with it, got the sponsors and it evolved."
The $20,000.00 prize package will include airfare from Winnipeg to Flin Flon return, 5 nights hotel at the Victoria Inn, a trip to Camp Whitney with a fishing guide, a rental car from U-Drive and tickets for four people to the Blueberry Jam music gathering in August.
