I have had a few questions inquiring about if the event is for Canadians only.  This is a WLDC qualifier so open to EVERYONE.  We have had many US and International competitors over the years and welcome them with open arms.  We just happen to be the only Canadian stop in the qualifying series.  Hope that clears the air.

2 weeks away from the COLD Shootout!  A reminder to book your hotel before they sell out.  Barrie is a busy place in the summer months.  Group rates for competitors are available through the link in the original posting. 

As always we will be doing our pub grub - Wings & Beer feast Saturday night at the Tangle Creek Clubhouse for anyone that wants to join us for a friendly get together after the completion of the Masters final.  A great informal way to get to know other competitors, share stories and receive feedback about the event.

Yes ---we are now less then TWO WEEKS AWAY from the first balls of the competition flying down grid!!!   
Personally---I cannot wait ( and same goes for the GRIDMAN Jackson--he's pumped too!!!)   

    This is one of the best grids ever in LD and go check the drone video HAWK put on FB and Twitter if you've never been at one of the events at TANGLE CREEK.   We have been busting our ass's to ensure the 2016 COLD Shootout is bigger ,better and more enjoyable for all.   Safe travels and see everyone when they arrive, be sure and come over and introduce yourself if your new to the COLD SHOOTOUT or LD in general ...
