The heat is on...

The talent keeps rising to the top. Heat five of Ballinas Idol was held last Sunday and the quality of this talent competition made the judging by sponsor and judge Gary Fox (third from left) difficult, to say the least.

Finally though, three winners were chosen and they are (l-r) Ben Sneesby of Goonellebah, Paige Ridgeway of Teven and Robert Cain of Tintenbar. Congrats to these guys (and gal) who progress through to the semi final series, which commences on Sunday, October 29, at the Ballina RSL Club.

The grand final is set for Friday, November 17. Heat six will be held this Sunday, September 24, in the Riverside Lounge at the Ballina RSL Club from 3-5pm.
