The Ballinas Idol competition keeps unearthing local talent thanks to a supportive club (Ballina RSL) and judge and sponsor Gary Fox (The Good Guys in Ballina). Winners of heat six from last Sunday are (from left) Dougie Norrie (Ballina), Sophie Carter (Lennox Head) and Jessica Holmick (Goonellabah) with the irrepressible judge himself, Gary Fox. Semi finals commence on Sunday, October 29, with the grand final set for Friday, November 17. Heats and semis are held in the Riverside Lounge of the Ballina RSL Club from 3-5pm each Sunday. Ballinas Idol supports Autism Spectrum Australia. Good on them.
