Unfortunately, our Great Canadian 150 Rally has been cancelled due to lack of snow. We are extremely disappointed about this, but we don’t want to host an event with poor conditions. We would love to have everyone; however, we want you all to be safe and enjoy your ride on our trails. We look forward to planning and hosting our event next year. Our sled raffles will still occur as planned: Polaris- Saturday at 4:30pm at the Westward Community Centre and the Ski-Doo at 4:30pm at the Westward Community Centre on Sunday. Please visit Canadian Tire,Whitecourt IGA, RPM and Adrenaline Powersports to purchase your tickets until then. $5.00 per ticket.
