from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun,
“I’ve never seen this kind of reaction,” she continued. “Winkler is known to be sort of calm. But this has taken it to a new dimension.
“I don’t think it’s just limited to town. I’m getting phone calls from all over: Elkhorn, Beausejour, Carman, Morden — every town on the map. It’s become a southern Manitoba type of event.”
Even people from Grand Forks, N.D., and a few other little places in the States want to get in on the action, which gets underway at 1:30 this afternoon in the Winkler Arena.
“Doors open at 1 p.m.,” Penner said. “We expect lineups well before that.”
