Lets go ICE RACING!
Sorry for the delay everyone, but after exploring many different options we have a lake and a track plowed. We are going back to an old friend from 2008-2010 – Rob’s Lake by Ferintosh. Its going to be a busy February with our revised schedule shown below.

ICE RACE MARSHALLING
Ice racing marshals are the Diehards of Motorsport marshalling!
The best way to watch a race is to be in the car. The second-best way to watch is to be a trackside marshal. If you are interested in racing but not sure about driving yourself, being a marshal might be for you. Ice Racing Marshals are there for emergencies and to communicate with racers with flags and to communicate regarding the race with others via radio.
What to expect as an Ice racing marshal: The first thing you need to expect is to dress warmly. Temperatures in Canada and Alberta while marshalling can be anywhere from -5 to –40 Celsius depending on where you are; so dress warmly in lots of layers. You can always shed a layer of clothing if it warms up. Try wearing any other colour except white so you don’t blend into the snow bank. If you are new to Marshalling you are on track training with experienced personnel.
An average race course is 6 turns and approximately 2 kms long so 20 trackside marshals can cover a racecourse. Track set-up starts with checking ice thickness for safety first then followed by ploughing out the course.
You must be 18 years of age to be trackside but if being trackside is not for you there is many other volunteer jobs required to run a race. Non-trackside race positions: timing, pre-grid Pit in & Pit out, Tech, track set-up & clean-up.
