It's rapidly approaching and I'm not hearing any buzz so who is planning on attending Slingfest in Sundre, Alberta this year? It runs from Thursday July 25th through Sunday July 28th and promises to be the best one ever! Post up here if you plan to attend, are looking for riding companions on your way in or out, or just have a comment to make about those crazy Canadians! Come one, come all - it's going to be EPIC!
It looks something like this:
THE 3RD ANNUAL SUNDRE SLINGFEST!
We're doing it again - bigger, better and BADDER than ever before!
Roll into the park on Thursday for a meet n' greet with fellow slingers from all over America. Bring your slingshot parts for trade or sell at our Slingshot swap meet around the bonfire.
Friday morning - enjoy Coffee & donuts, compliments of Tim Hortons. Enjoy some group rides with fellow slingers and an early supper on the patio of the Twisted Pantry. Hold onto your boots as we cruise out to the Bikes & Bulls for exclusive access to our own official drag race. Wind out your slingshot and get as many passes down the strip as you can for an incredible rate of $30!
Saturday - Poker Run Day! Tour through Sundre & the surrounding glorious rockies while filling up your cards. Want to increase your chances? Extra cards available for purchase! Return to Sundre for an amazing awards dinner sponsored by Riverside Motosports and prepared by your dedicated Slingshot Garage Pit Crew. THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in prizes to be won! One last chance at trading or selling your extra slingshot accessories for other cool stuff!
Sunday - Tim Hortons is back for the morning! Enjoy a relaxing cruise with all your new best friends before our amazing farewell lunch provided by the amazing chef at Original T's.
What do I get for my registration fee?
For starters, you get to hang and ride with the best darn group of folks you will ever meet. Also included, a discounted rate at Wagons West RV Park for camping, a super swag bag, a hugely discounted night at the drag races, an amazing awards dinner, a free poker rally card, raffle tickets to incredible prizes and priceless memories.
What if I don't own a slingshot, can I still come?
This is the perfect place for you to come and get a taste of the 3-wheeled lifestyle and the amazing people in it. Bring the wheels you got and jump in for a ride with many of our willing participants. Got your Class 6? Take a slingshot for a test drive during any of the four days of the event.
Can I particpate in the poker rally, drag race or meals if I'm not in a slingshot?
The poker rally & drag race are exclusively for slingshot owners. Everyone is welcome to the meals for a charge.
What if I just want to drag race?
You must register below and will be charged $50 at the gate for entry. We hope you'll decide to continue on with us for the weekend - you won't be sorry!
