    About four weeks away and we have 150+ boats entered, it's looking like a great event for 2022.

    Since we're a little light on Nitro and FE entries we've decided to lower the cutoff to three boats to make a class with first place only awarded.

    Looking forward to seeing ya'll soon!

    For our American friends coming to the Can-Am you have to complete the ArriveCAN information to enter Canada.

    Filling in the information ahead of time actually speeds up your crossing. You can download the app to your phone or fill in the information online and print the page, it takes less than five minutes:

    https://www.canada.ca/en/border-serv...arrivecan.html

    If you have options where you cross you can check border crossing times here:

    See ya'll soon!
