  1. The only way to get better is to race against the best in the business.
  2. Looks like Brockville is holding a practice on May 23rd and Cornwall is holding a practice on May 24th.
  3. Yes, it caught me by surprise as well when I looked through the guidelines very carefully.
  4. It's interesting what it says on Page 4. The Facebook post by Cornwall Speedway is kind of misleading. Like you said, the only dirt track in Ontario that could probably make it work is Ohsweken. I'd be surprised if a track here held races without any kind of spectator (either in person or PPV).
  5. I'm not sure how true this is. Cornwall Speedway posted that the new rules still do not allow them to race as they are part of a later phase of re-opening. I am assuming they are referring to Phase 3 which refers to large gatherings, concerts and sporting events.
  6. Unfortunately you pretty much need to race a minimum of two nights a week to stay sharp against those teams racing two or three nights a week. It's pretty rare to see someone who races once a week to do well against others who are racing multiple times a week.
  7. I wonder what Jimmy Kimmel, Trevor Noah and the other late night tv show hosts are going to talk about whenever Donald Trump is no longer President (whether that be in November or in 4 more years)? The President sure has given them lots of material; some warranted, some not so much.
  8. I really like sail panels. I wish all Modifieds (BB & SB) had sail panels (or something similar) and Sportsman had windows. Helps the average fan or new person tell the difference between classes. Lord knows all tracks could use some new fans.
  9. If I was American, I'd be all over this. Think about; this may be the only time all the local super stars will be competing until July or August or even later. $50US for two nights of racing doesn't seem all that unreasonable, especially when you consider you don't have to spend money on gas or food and you're able to sit in your favourite chair and eat your own food to watch this event. Unfortunately the conversion from US to Canadian makes it a bit less appealing to me, but I haven't ruled it out yet. Thank you to the DTD TV team for your efforts to broadcast this event.
  10. I hate answering a question with a question, but, why not? What problem would be solved if that was the case? Correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe a restricted licenced gun owner has ever committed a mass shooting in Canada. Therefore the problem is with illegal gun owners - solve that problem without punishing everyone. And those places that you are talking about, do exist in Canada. Anyone with valid ID can shoot one of these guns at one of those gun ranges. The other problem I have with it is that PM Trudeau completely bypassed the democratic process, claiming it's in the interest of safety for all Canadians. Maybe he should get tougher on the border and stop the illegal guns from coming in through the US and other sources - that would actually accomplish something. Disarming law abiding and restricted licensed Canadian citizens does nothing to help the safety of all Canadians. The other thing is this is going to cost a lot of money to buy all these guns back for no return on safety. Another thing; all centre fire rifles in Canada are limited to 5 rounds and cannot be modified. So you can have an AR-15 with 5 rounds of .223 or a hunting rifle with 5 rounds of 30-06. Which is more dangerous? Hint: it's the most popular deer hunting rifle in North America. Also, all military firearms have been banned in Canada since 1979.
  11. Furthermore you have to jump through many hoops to get your resticticted license in Canada. It makes the system in the USA look like a cake walk. Our fearless Prime Minister also said that these guns need to be banned because they aren't used for hunting, but then said that Indigenous People can keep them and use them for hunting... how does that make sense? Again, a law abiding, gun owning, citizen (in Canada) doesn't go and shoot up a bunch of people. We have good laws in place that keep these unstable, mentally ill people from being able to legally own them. People who do get these guns and commit murder get them illegally and the law that Emperor...oops I mean... Prime Minister Trudeau is implementing will do nothing to stop that. Why do we need these types of guns? Because they are used for sport. Enthusiasts use them at gun ranges and in competition. People in the military and police force quite often own these types of guns personally and will use them on weekends at gun ranges to hone or sharpen their skills.
  12. Same thing is happening here in Ontario. In the county that I live in there is a population of about 88,500 spread accross 7,400 sq km (2,865 sq miles) and we only have 15 cases of COVID19 and 1 death (a lady in her 90s). Everything here is shut down. All fall fairs have been cancelled. All small musical festivals have been cancelled. It sure is frustrating, but we all have to do our part, I guess.
  13. Given your involement with the medical industry, I'd be interested to hear your opinon on the following: Nebulized Hydrogen Peroxide. It was covered by MSN as a treatment for COVID-19, but mysteriously pulled after Trump's remarks. Healight: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/apr/26/pharmaceutical-firm-aytu-bioscience-testing-uv-lig/ Twitter suspended Aytu BioSceience's Twitter page and Youtube banned their videos after Trump's remarks... talk about Big Tech protecting 'the narrative'.
  14. For context purposes; poison control calls were already up 20.4% from January to March 2020 compared to the same time period in 2019. This is according to the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6916e1.htm?s_cid=mm6916e1_w Did those numbers go up after what Trump said, probably, but they were already on the rise.
  15. This may be the very best compromise between an enclosed and open hauler. The car is protected from the elements but you can still see (somewhat) what's inside.
  16. No one's offended. Just making sure that it was understood that I was posting facts and not hearsay. Way too much hearsay posted on here.
  17. Agreed, but I am not sure what are you trying to get at here? The information I passed along on April 1st was 100% accurate at the time based on the information provided to everyone in attendance at the banquet on March 7th. The SDS race was cancelled on March 30th, so they must have decided to shorten the track at some point after that cancellation. The Facebook post from April 18th that you reference even says "We are taking advantage of this downtime". The Bartlett family are doing lots of great things at the speedway. Keep up the good work!
  18. That's correct. With all of this downtime, they were able to complete many projects, one of which included shortening the track by 1/10th of a mile, if I'm not mistaken. My post was based on the information given out at the banquet. They didn't shorten it in the Fall and they weren't going to have time before the SDS race in mid-April.
  19. I really like the default layout. Excellent job to all involved!
