Due to possible restrictions that may be in place come October, the CAN-AM Contest committee has decided to cancel this year’s show.

We don’t regret our decision, as we feel that there could possibly be too great of a chance that restrictions could make our show less than what we (and you) would expect. All vendor monies collected so far will be refunded in full.

We hope you all understand the reasoning behind this decision. Believe me, this disappoints us a great deal to cancel a successful running show. We aren’t sure yet weather will will try again in 2021, or keep to our schedule of 2022. Rest assured, as soon as we decide, we’ll make the announcement.

What this does mean is…get ready for a GREAT show when we resume.
Thanks all!
