    The park has given us a discount again this year on the entrance fees, a flat C$15/day per vehicle and all occupants. Just mention "model boat race" and show some ID.

    No park entrance fees if camping. :)

    Hey Terry,

    If I remember correctly, didn't the park offer a one-time fee and give you a pass for all 3 days?

    given the hard times in D2 racing this year I might have to consider coming to this.

    It's the same deal as last year except we don't have to deal with the token system.

    Flat C$15/day per vehicle and all occupants instead of $15 for vehicle and driver plus $5 for each additional occupant.

    Fifteen Canadian Pesos is about like what? Five bucks for you? :)

    As a novice rc boater, I won't be racing, but I will be 'looking and learning'. Seeing as I'm not racing, do I need to register, or simply show up and pay my Fifty Point entrance fee each day?

    Thanks,
    Kaye

    spectators are pretty much always welcomed at races, we want people to see it. you'll just need to stay out of the hot pits (where boats are started) and launch area, but those will be clearly marked and roped off. generally you're able to walk around people's tents and see their stuff.

    Still over 2 months away from our Aug 24/25 race and we already have over 150 boats registered. It’s going to be our biggest race ever. Get signed up.
