Players from Hapnot Collegiate’s curling team in Flin Flon brought their city’s flag up to Thompson.
Mayor Colleen Smook explains she and Karen MacKinnon and Cal Huntley from Flin Flon had a challenge. When it came down to the final four it was Thompson, The Pas, Snow Lake and Flin Flon so when they ended up in a position against Flin Flon they thought they’d make a challenge for the north and Thompson didn’t quite get enough votes to get it so they decided to fly the Flin Flon flag.
According to the SnoRider’s website, Flin Flon has consistently gotten the most votes out of any of the destinations across the western provinces.
However, Thompson proved to be strong competition, as Flin Flon edged out the Nickel City with 54 per cent of the vote.
In round five, Flin Flon is taking on Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, and voting closes on Sunday.
