DAC Go-Kart and BBQ Event - July 15

The D.A.C. is having a Go-Kart event at 3S Go-Karts (Sutton) for Saturday July 15 at 10:30 AM - http://www.3sgokartsinternational.com (MAP) followed by a BBQ lunch and swim (bring lawn chair, towel, swimsuit) at Karen Vereeken’s home at 41 Lake Drive North, Keswick (
) - beer and food supplied by Karen.

We need a minimum of 10 participants to get a discounted rate of $100 (tax inc) per person. Each person gets 50 laps in one of 6 high performance go-karts. They are specially tuned 6.5 hp Honda powered karts in light weight racing chassis. Drive format is timed laps, Karts will be spaced out (not wheel to wheel), however if we convince the owner we can drive in a safe and capable fashion, he will allow us to race wheel to wheel. In any case, we have several options of how to split up our allotted track time.

We have driver’s meeting at 10:45, and Karts roll out at 11:00. To race you must have a minimum valid G-Class license. Racing suits and helmets provided, unless you care to bring your own. Bring closed footwear.

This is open to club members and their invited friends.

Please note this is a weather dependent event. If it is due to rain we will call it off Friday night and try to reschedule for July 22nd. If we can count on you to come out please confirm your attendance by emailing scoty@rogers.com 

This is going to be great fun!

Ice Race Season Cancelled

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 time at The Blackhorn Steakhouse, 251 Ellesmere, Scarborough. It was agreed by all in attendance at the meeting that we will continue to hold our monthly meetings there.

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

This design will also be more vinyl graphic friendly
