All racers are invited to attend a 2.5 day fall regional camp sponsored by Teck at the beautiful Miracle Beach Provincial Park in Black Creek. The camp begins on Friday, September 13 at 4pm and ends on Sunday, September 15 at 11am.

On Friday, families are welcome to attend a potluck dinner (more details coming soon). Masters, Devo, and Junior racers will be staying at the group campground. The cost is $50/Juniors/Masters and $40/Devos. This fee includes accommodation, training, and meals.

Registration deadline is extended to September 9th. However, you can still register now, so you don’t miss out.
