I know it is still a little early yet, but I would like to know who is planning to compete this year as 4Wheel parts is going to donate a gift pack to all competitors.

I need to know who is in as early as possible to let them know how many we need!

Thanks,
Sam

This year we are going to run 2 stages each on different courses in each class. The two leaders in each class will than run a shoot out on a new stage of gates to determine an overall winner.

Each class entry is $50, all cash going to the winners along with additional prizes.

Again , proceeds will be going to help cancer patients who need to travel for treatment . We have pulled together a lot of publicity to this event to benefit those in need as well as our sport, so lets put on a good show!

The class requirements are a little strict looking but they are outlined by the insurance provider, however we are quite lenient on many things and place competitors in classes best suited to be competitive, and no one is going to be turned away due to small details on tech inspection.

Thanks for looking!
Sam

His name is Karl. Hes from southern ontario.

I think hes coming out with a few others from that area.

Anyone on here entering?
Free camping with porta potty along the river, there will be games and activities for kids at the crawl as well as all around Capreol during the Capreol days festival.

Again, its a charitable event for Canadian Cancer Society so lets put on a good event and keep people coming back each year in support of a great cause!
