It was officially announced yesterday by our
ice race director Jonathan Rashleigh that the 2017 Ice Race
season has been brought to an end. Despite the best efforts of
the local Kinsmen the excessive rain and mild temperatures
earlier this week (and the same early the week before) washed
away enough of the snow and melted enough of the ice that the
season had to be cancelled. We only managed to complete 3 1/2
weekends out of 6 scheduled for this year. :( The DAC awards
banquet will be rescheduled sometime soon in Toronto - TBA
New Monthly Meeting Venue
The DAC held our monthly meeting last night for the first

Updated DAC Logo
DAC member Kye Wankum is helping to promote our club and
hopes to attract club membership by a prominent display of our
logo on his race car. In the process of producing the "artwork"
required to get the logo printed for the car he has also given
our logo a bit of a facelift. The use of this revised logo on
Kye's car was given permission at the meeting
design will also be more vinyl graphic friendly
