The Nelson Rhythm Ropers will be raising money at Finley's this Friday.

What’s everyone doing Friday night? Are you ready to have some fun?

The parents of the Nelson Rhythm Ropers have partnered with Brent and Tanya of Finley’s Irish Bar & Grill for the Roper’s seventh annual theme night “Name That Tune” event. The fun all starts at 6 p.m.

“We had such a blast last year with Elliot our wonderful host,” said Carmela Craig, special events coordinator for the Ropers. “Wow, does he know how to get a crowd going. We thought we’d join forces again.”

Do you have a good ear for music? Then listen closely to the tunes and get ready to score some Finley Bucks. Not so musically inclined? Well then just come on out for some good food, drinks and enjoy the company.

Spaghetti with meat sauce, veggie sauce for you veggie lover’s, bun and side salad with your choice of beer, wine, pop, coffee or tea are on the menu… all for just $10. There will be lots of great prizes up for grabs and a 50/50 draw.

“The Ropers’ had a successful last year hosting provincials in Nelson then travelling to Calgary for nationals,” said Ropers’ head coach Brenda Reid. “The team will be travelling to Abbotsford for provincials and worlds in Washington, DC this year. We have also been busy changing our style this year by training with the Belgium jumpers. Some of our all-star skippers performed at the provincial AAA basketball tournament in Langley during the half time show and trained some other teams.

“It’s another very busy and exciting year for the Ropers.”

Tickets for the Friday night event at Finley’s are available at the door.
