Feb.19th Gull Lake Ice Race is ON! Oval and Sprint racing

Feb.19th Gull Lake Ice Race is ON! Oval and Sprint racing

Looking forward to seeing everyone out for Round 2 of the CMA National Oval (round 3 provincial points) AND Round 2 of the new style of racing, SPRINT!

Gull Lake has always been a popular National event.  Lots of action with two disciplines racing at the same time.  A 1/4 mile oval as well as a 1,500 meter two-way track similar to a go-kart track.  Next year we will be hosting each discipline on separate days as many of our racers want to participate in both forms.  Ice racing growing!!! 

Come on out and enjoy a great day of racing and cheering on your favorite racers!  Stu McColl (Race City) will be announcing for us....he never misses a thing on the track!  You can hear his announcing through your FM radio station too.

Feb.12th Cow Lake Oval & Sprint Ice Race is a GO!

Feb.12th Cow Lake Oval and Sprint (Two-Way) Ice Race is A GO!
The weather has cooled off, the ice has thickened and firmed and with some snow today, we have perfect conditions for ICE RACING!    So get ready for the first National of the season, Round 2 for Provincial Oval points and our VERY first Sprint Provincial event.
Two styles of racing at the SAME location, same pits.  This is exciting news! If anyone is available to volunteer to corner flag the sprint race, we could use with a few extras...even if you bring a buddy to visit with or to trade off with, we would really appreciate the extra help
Randy has built a new oval track for the weekend as well as a new sprint track.  We will be entering ice on the west side through campground as we did at the last race.  Wildrose Concession will be onsite early with muffins and breakfast sausage rolls ready to start your day.

FEB. 5th SYLVAN Lake ice race POSTPONED to March 11, 2012

We thought we might be able to run Sylvan but instead we have POSTPONED until Mar.11th.
So enjoy a weekend of Super Bowl or Lethbridge Arenacross or a day of practice to get ready for our first Oval National and first ever Sprint Provincial Feb.12 at Cow Lake south of Rocky Mountain House.  Don't miss out!  Best map is by checking out Grandview Stage has some rooms available, a gas station and restaurant and is only a couple kms away from race site.  Spread the word. Fortunately, the weather is cooling down and the rest of the season looks a bit more predictable!  

For those of you that have been to the Cow Lake races in the past, note that we will be using a different entrance this year.  South of Grandview Stage to Cow Lake campsite (west) entrance.  In years past we used the north entrance which has an unpassable heave at the shoreline, thus we are now using the west entrance.  Spread the word.  See you all out there! I'll make sure that PRE-REGISTRATION is up and running by tomorrow.  Enjoy your weekend everyone!
