With a brand new venue and new sponsors we hope to get a lot of interest in this competition. With $10,000 up for prize money there should be more interest from the USA teams that are willing to cross the border for a great time.

Just thought I would also mention that the KCBS Reps for the competition are Bill & Debbie Gage. This is their 3rd year up here in Manitoba and they run a great competition. The competition is being set up on pavement and the first 18 teams will be placed under the "big top". There is a huge tent top structure that is 100'x 200' and this will keep the direct sun off as well as any unwanted rain. Promises to be a great time. With the Blues festival happening for both days and a huge "big rig" show and shine, there will be lots of things to do.
