That's right, it's another busy two days, two events Ice Trials. 
for ant type of 4 wheeled vehicle with any type of tyres.  Front engine
Rear wheel drive, Front engine Front wheel drive, Rear engine Rear wheel
drive, or Four wheel drive.  Whatever moves you.  If you're in doubt,
call me.  Jeeps and dune buggies must have roll bars or hard tops.  All
classes are duplicated for studded snow tyres (standard commercial
studding).  All vehicles MUST have and drivers MUST use SEATBELTS! 
Helmets are also required (per GCR's) and must have the proper SNELL
certification.  A small number of loaner helmets will be available.

While this event is designed for your everyday streetcar, a special
for modified vehicles also exists.  This class is for any vehicle
equipment such as ice racing vehicles, dune buggies, vehicles with
locked differentials, and any vehicle with non-standard studs in the
tyres (such as longer than normal, more than normal or otherwise
different than normal).  Cars may be placed in this class at the
decision of the event chairman or safety inspector.  The GREEN MACHINE
will have its own class.  An additional fee ($5-10) per driver per day
will be collected for use of the  GREEN MACHINE to cover expenses (we
use over 25 gallons of gasoline per day for this event).  Go-carts,
motorcycles and ATV's are NOT allowed to enter.  Again, all vehicles
Must have and drivers must use SEATBELTS and HELMETS!  Passengers are
not allowed during timed runs.

The ICE TRIALS consists of a defined course on the surface of the frozen
lake.  The length of the course will be between 1 and 1.5 miles
(depending on snow conditions) and cars will be a minimum of 1 minute
apart with a maximum of two vehicles on the course at any given time to
eliminate any risk of collision.  The object of the event is to complete
the course in the least amount of time.  Runs will be timed to the
nearest hundredth of a second or better.  Penalties will be assessed
(time added) for hitting course markers (pylons).  Approximately one
third of the entries in each vehicle class, as defined above, will be
awarded trophies for their performance.  A minimum of three (3) cars
must enter any class for a trophy to be awarded in that class.  Bring
your friends to drive your car if it is an oddball.  Special classes may
be created if a large number of vehicles of any one type enter.  This is
at the discretion of the event chairmen.

REGISTRATION:  Saturday and Sunday opens at 9:00 AM (along with
familiarization runs) and continues throughout the event.  Missed runs
will not be
made up.  Timed runs will start at 11:00 AM each day.  Cars run in
numerical order.  Entrants may enter more than one vehicle.  The
different vehicles may be in the same or different classes.  It is the
entrant's responsibility to have the cars ready to run in order.  More
than one driver may enter driving the same vehicle.  Numbers for the
same vehicle will be issued at least 4 apart to allow for driver
Event entry fee is $15.00 per day per entrant.
