Stouffville, Ontario – Preparations for the 50th Celebration of the CRC (and Canadian Rallying) are underway and some details are outlined below.
Celebration Logo Created: A 50th logo for the Canadian Rally Championship was commissioned and has been adopted for the 50th Celebration. While the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Rally Championship is the focal point of the celebrations planned for January, the celebration will be an opportunity to gather together in Toronto to reflect in the history of the sport, its clubs, events and especially all the people who have been part of the sport since the first Canadian rally. (Does anyone have any idea when that might have been?) We hope you will plan to be there to join in the celebration.
Hotel and Dates Confirmed: The celebration will be held the weekend of January 12-14, 2007 with guest and delegate registration opening on the Friday evening. The hotel will be the DoubleTree International Plaza Hotel, 655 Dixon Road, Toronto, Ontario, M9W 1J3. There is a room block in place with a rate of $129 per night (1-800- 668-3656 or 416-244-1711) and there is a free shuttle available from the nearby Pearson Airport.
Past Overall Champions to be Honoured: Contacts have been made with some of the past Canadian Rally Champions. Everyone contacted so far has indicated they will plan on being at the 50th Celebration.
Hope to see you there.
Chair, 50th Celebration Committee
