30th Annual Northern Ontario Open Country Singing Contest Results


Another great Contest again this year which has brought us some excellent talent from across the country!

We attracted over 55 contestants and the audience had a great variety of old and new songs to listen to as they saw these contestants perform so wonderfully. Once again we were also entertained by some of our locals, including, "Fiddlin' Country", "Billy Bob & Cletus", "The Little Man" and the CDR Band and our judges.

The Karaoke Class had six children. We also used six judges again this year with an extremely difficult job to bring the classes down to the finals.
