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 is Open!

Registration for the Northern Loon TSD Rally is now open!

The 2016 Northern Loon will be run on July 9th, 2016.  It will be hosted by the Edmonton Rally Club, is a sanctioned CARS-Rallywest event, and is one of the Rallywest TSD Championship events.

This TSD (Time Speed Distance) event will start with breakfast in Nisku, make a wonderful trek south west and end in Rocky Mountain House with awards and dinner.

Please check out the Northern Loon page for more details!

Knox Mountain Hill Climb

The 2016 Knox Mountain Hillclimb is happening Saturday and Sunday of this weekend.  The Edmonton Rally Club would like to wish a great race and safety to all participants, but would like to give an extra little luck to our ERC members: Garrett Mealing, and Roger Sieber.

Check out the official webpage to see all the details.  If you’re wondering what you should do with your long weekend, maybe a trip out to Kelowna is just what you need!

Thanks to all the volunteers who make races such as this happen.  There truly wouldn’t be motorsports without the officials, organizers, and people who care.  If you are an ERC member who is going as a volunteer, let us know! 🙂

CSCC – Mudlark TSD Update

Tomorrow is the last day of the Early Bird pricing on the Mudlark TSD rally out of Calgary.  Until the end of tomorrow, it is $100 ($75 for any CARS affiliated club members, including the ERC), and goes up to $125/100 on Saturday. Register for this awesome novice level TSD here!

If if you’re not able to race on May 7th, but want to be involved, please consider volunteering. They will require help with tech, check points, and general help the day of. Get in touch here!

Mudlark TSD Rally – May 7th

Now is the time to start prepping and register for the CSCC’s Mudlark TSD Rally!  This is a novice rally, but some driving proficiency will be required due to the change of terrain.  You will experience gravel, dirt and mud, with an occasional goat trail.

You will want to consider whether you need to do anything to your vehicle for the above conditions, but otherwise, there is no “required” car prep.  All competitors must have a standing safety triangle, a first aid kit, and a fire extinguisher in their vehicles, but otherwise there is no specialty equipment required.

If you want some practice before the Northern Loon, try out the Mudlark in Calgary in May!  If you’re not interested in Driving or Co-Driving, the CSCC still needs more volunteers to help with tech, checkpoints, etc.  Check out their website for more information.

If you’d like to drive or navigate, but don’t have a partner, post in the comments to see if you can find your missing teammate!
