Thunder Bay Country Market, 2014 Season

Thunder Bay Country Market, 2014 Season

The Thunder Bay Country Market is a year-round farmers’ market held Wednesdays from 4-7pm from May long weekend through September, and Saturdays between 8am and 1pm all year-round.

The Market is now open for their mid-week Market, Wednesdays from 4-7pm!  We Make it, Bake it, Grow it.

Over 100 vendors attend every Market day, year-round, with additional farmers attending during the summer months; we’re proud to be the largest producer-based market in Northwestern Ontario.  An average of 6,000 visitors shop for local meats, cheese, eggs, produce, baking, meals and crafts every week.
The Market is a sustainable engine of the Thunder Bay economy, with a real impact of close to $8 million on our community.

For our vendors, the Market represents an opportunity to earn a living doing something they’re great at and that they love.  For many of our customers it’s a place to buy groceries, crafts and gifts from the talented, hard-working people who created them.  For others it’s a meeting-place full of good people where they can get in touch with some of the simpler things in life.

At the Thunder Bay Country Market you’ll always know exactly what you’re buying.  Our producers know that happy, confident customers will tell their friends about the Market; they dedicate themselves to answering your questions.

Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

The Thunder Bay North Stars Junior A hockey team has roots in local Junior A hockey dating back to the early 1920’s with such teams as the Fort William War Veterans (Memorial Cup champs in 1922) and the Port Arthur North Stars.
After the fall of the mighty Thunder Bay Flyers (who played in the USHL) in 2000, there was a rebirth of Junior A hockey in Thunder Bay and surrounding area with the establishment of the Superior International Junior Hockey League in 2001. The SIJHL originally had 5 teams, including the Thunder Bay Wolves, which in their second year were purchased by the Fort William First Nation and a group of 7 businessmen from the Band, thus becoming the Fort William North Stars. Gerald Bannon eventually became the sole owner and operator of the team from 2003 – 2010.

In October 2010 the Fort William North Stars folded. Their assets, roster, personnel and name were transferred to a new ownership group comprised of local Thunder Bay business people. The team’s name was changed to the Thunder Bay North Stars to reflect that they are the only Thunder Bay team remaining in the now 7 team SIJHL. The North Stars are truly now “Thunder Bay’s team”.

Late summer of 2012, the Thunder Bay North Stars saw new ownership again, with Doug Gunsinger at the helm.

The North Stars are the only team in SIJHL history to have won the Dudley Hewitt Cup and play in the Royal Bank Cup. That was accomplished by the 2005-2006 team which hosted the Dudley that season. They won silver at the RBC that year.

Grand Portage Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids

Grand Portage Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids

Saturday, February 7, 2015
Grand Portage Lodge and Casino

Enjoy a full day of fun with your family and friends and help kids with physical disabilities succeed!

Snowmobile Trail On Saturday, February 7, snowmobilers from across Northwestern Ontario and Northeastern Minnesota are invited to hit the trails for the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids to become part of the most successful winter fundraiser for Easter Seals Ontario. Now in its 12th year, the Grand Portage Lodge and Casino Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids has raised more than $290,000 in support of children and youth with physical disabilities in our community.

To celebrate our 12th year at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino, with every $100 in pledges you raise, you will receive a ballot to win 1 of 12 GIFTS OF SNOWARAMA including: $1,200 in cash and weekend vacation packages!

The event includes a bonfire on the trail, a fabulous Portage buffet dinner, and entrance to the dance featuring BED OF ROSES (a Bon Jovi Tribute band) on Saturday night. There will be prizes for the top fundraisers, as well as additional prizes throughout the weekend. A minimum of $100 in pledges is required to participate. The more pledges you bring in, the more chances you have to win one of twelve prizes. This year, participants can also register for the event and collect pledges from friends and family online. By submitting pledge forms before February 2, 2015, your name will be entered into the draw for a prize.

Grand Portage Lodge has reserved rooms for the weekend for Snowarama participants only. Please call Billi at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino at 1-800-543-1384 ext. 2917 to book a room reserved for Snowarama participants. Trail permits will be required for those riders that venture off the Grand Portage Reservation trails for $36 USD. Minnesota trail permits are available at Ryden’s 66.

Snowarama has two routes to choose from at Grand Portage Lodge and Casino – a long ride that is approximately 120 miles to Gunflint and a short ‘local ride’ on the reservation that is approximately 35 miles.

Funds raised at this event help provide financial assistance for children with physical disabilities for essential mobility and communication equipment and fully accessible summer camping opportunities. Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids would not be a success without the support of the snowmobiling community. We sincerely hope we can count on your support and participation again this year.

We look forward to seeing you on the trails!
