Lindsay Ugly Award

Congratulations goes out to the Fred Reynolds Group on being the next winner of the Lindsay Good Bad and Ugly Awards. Frederick G. Reynolds Group takes home the coveted Ugly Award this month and a $150.00 gift certificate compliments of Ridout Photography. The certificate can be used for any service or product offered by Ridout Photography. I wanted to contact them through their website http://www.reynoldsgroup.ca/ but unfortunately it’s a tad light on information. Dam I wish the property was as clean as their website 🙂

It was a very difficult decision in awarding the coveted Lindsay”Ugly Award” as there were a number of contenders this month. With the hard work of our judges and some excellent images for verification, this little jem was the clear winner .

Certainly the irony of the sign saying this is on “Lindsays Golden Mile” isn’t lost on anybody. If the City Of Kawartha Lakes would introduce an Ugly tax this owner would need a very sharp accountant. There isn’t a law that says one must care about how things look but this property is the poster boy for disinterested landowners everywhere. A building that has stood vacant for well over five years is a great advertisement to the entrance of our lovely city. Community responsibility is an age old concept that seems to have been forgotten here. As for the sign that hangs on the weathered and rotting front door..I do see the sense of banning dogs from this pig pen. Congratulations!!

Paul Bell - It must have been very difficult choosing with so many lovely festering scabs to choose from. For future posts, may I recommend Lindsays fine motels.

Christine - Just found your website and the good, bad & ugly awards. This is great! I also nominate you for Citizen of the Month!!! Really….who is going to make the call to clean up this town? There is a lot of potential here if only somebody in the mayor’s office would make a decision once in awhile.

the big guy - Oh I also forgot to tell you awesome pics!!!!! You can make crap look good!!!

the big guy - Finally someone has posted to the internet some real crap that Lindsay has to offer its population and visitors!!!!
Thanks Mark for posting this !!!!
Maybe you should direct this to the City Hall and see if any one in this community has the balls to stand up and do something about this eye sore!!!!Does anyone give a crap?!

Mark I award you the Citizen of the Month award!!! Thanks for waking us all up!!!!!

Mark Ridout - I’ll leave the newspaper stuff to you Jason…it’s hard not to shoot this when it’s 5:00 in the morning and they’re screaming outside your bedroom window 🙂

Jason Bain - Wow. Some newspaper editor. Make that ‘You’re hired!’

Lindsay Ribfest 2010 – Good Award

This months Lindsay Good Award goes to Young’s Community Foundation in organizing the 1st of the The Lindsay Ribfest Invitational.  The Rib Fest Invitational is taking place this weekend and appears that it should be a success.  Just returned with the boys from a great lunch. We decided to purchase a half rack from each of the big players and what a treat to taste some excellent BBQ Ribs. The only downside to our lunch was that there was no place to sit and eat even though the tables in the beer garden were empty. I’m sure they’ll have that sorted out over the next few days. Go get yourself some ribs….you won’t be dissapointed. Just don’t wear a white T shirt like I did 🙂

We even ran into another of our wedding clients Vicki Stewart with the youngest rib eater at the event
