Here we are—at long last—the SledTown ShowDown Finals!
Congratulations to Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, and Flin Flon, Manitoba, your SledTown ShowDown finalists!
Hudson Bay and Flin Flon advance to the finals on the heels of narrow, hard-fought victories in the semi-finals.
Hudson Bay had a back-and-forth affair with Alberta’s provincial champion, Swan Hills. In the end, Saskatchewan’s four-time provincial champ came through to claim a spot in the finals. Hudson Bay (4,642 votes, 51%) defeats Swan Hills (4,469 votes, 49%).
In the semi-final battle between two previous SledTown ShowDown champions, Flin Flon (6,882 votes, 52%) managed to overcome McBride (6,440 votes, 48%). By dispatching British Columbia’s representative, Flin Flon takes its place in the finals. Not only that, Flin Flon now has the opportunity to become the first-ever two-time SledTown ShowDown champion.
