Thank you, Tamarack Motor Inn!

We’d like to extend a warm welcome and huge thank you to the Tamarack Motor Inn for becoming a Northern Loon sponsor!

The Tamarack Motor Inn is giving us an excellent rate on our competitor and volunteer rooms, at less than $100 for the night.  They have also covered the expense of our banquet facility, and the bartender!  We are so excited to stay in their comfortable rooms, enjoying a hot breakfast the next morning.  Be sure to book your room for the Loon soon!

If you are heading through Rocky Mountain House and need somewhere to stay, be sure to check out the Tamarack for a pleasant stay in the heart of this outstanding recreational destination!

Northern Loon Teaser

Are you on the fence about joining the Northern Loon because you haven’t done a TSD before?  Are you concerned about not seeing a route book before in your life?

Well, do I have exciting news for you!  You can now view the 2016 Premier Building Solution’s Northern Loon Odo Check!  This is the first little transit, where you can compare your odometer to the Official Rally Odometer.  Loon Odo Check

Feel free to print it, work out the math (not necessary for an actual Odo check, but if you want to practice…), or just familiarize yourself with what a book looks like.

Here are some other interesting resources to check out:

There are many resources out there for you to look up how to run your TSD event, and even practice sheets for you to work on.  Don’t worry if they are in Miles, just pretend they are in KM, and practice if you want.

Your top 3 priorities are:

  1. This is fun
  2. Stay on course
  3. Stay on time

If you can work on those three (in priority order), you’ll have a wonderful day running the Northern Loon TSD.

Dirt Roads

Welcome to our Title Sponsor, Premier Building Solutions

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Title Sponsor of the Northern Loon, Premier Building Solutions.

Premier Building Solutions is a popular general contractor in the hospitality and seniors markets, operating out of Red Deer.  They’ve done work all over southern Alberta, including the new Pete’s Drive In!

Please take a minute to look at their website, and remember them when someone asks you “Hey… know any general contractors?”

 

If you or your company would like to become a sponsor of the Northern Loon, please contact us!  We are hoping for a Swag Sponsor – someone who will either donate give-away prizes and volunteer thank you packs, a dinner banquet sponsor, and a route book sponsor.  No sponsorship is too small!  Please use the form below to get in touch with us.

 

RALLYCROSS #5 CANCELLED

Hi guys –

Right now, the Rallycross field is far too wet to use. We were hoping that it would be drier, but due to Mother Nature not being on our side, we’re postponing tomorrow’s event.

We we apologize for the late notice, but due to pre-existing schedules, the field wasn’t inspected until midnight.

Please check back soon, as we will reschedule this event, hopefully in the coming weeks. Anyone who has paid will have their payment applied to the rescheduled event, unless other arrangements are made.

Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see everyone very soon!

Monthly Meeting Tonight!

Please join us tonight at 6:30 pm for our monthly meeting.  You can find us at 6563 Gateway Blvd in Edmonton.  Please see our Maps section if you need help finding us.

We will be discussing the upcoming Rallycross event, planning the Northern Loon TSD, and making other future plans.  If you’d like to have a voice in what the ERC plans and does, this is the place to have a voice!
