FMG Ice Dragons Challenge at La Place Rendezvous Hotel in Fort Frances, ON

$500 CAD per team   

Teams of 10 with no drummer needed.  Steers will be provided by the festival organizers.

Three Divisions: Men's, women's & mixed.   Mixed teams must have an equal number of men and women.

As these races are held at night to ensure firmer ice quality for racing amidst fire pits and dry ice, teams are encouraged to wear reflective clothing and glow sticks!   "Cool runnings" indeed!

Team practices will be held the day of the event from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with races running from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

More details will be released closer to the event date.  To register your team, email
