Morris Mohawk Gaming Group and Bodog Sponsor CMRC National Ice Racing Event



    February 16 in Kahnawake, Quebec; Proceeds go to Girls Soccer Team

    KAHNAWAKE, Feb. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - The Morris Mohawk Gaming Group and
Bodog have teamed up once again to co-sponsor one of the most anticipated
Canadian Motosport Racing Club (CMRC) national ice racing events of the year.
Held on Feb. 16 at the Kahnawake Marina, just outside Montreal, QC, 80 - 100
amateur and professional ice racers with motorcycles and four wheelers of all
shapes, sizes and CC's will do battle on the frozen surface of Lac St. Louis.
    The day's racing kicks off at 1 p.m. EST as the VTT Pro 450 S-Pro racers
take to the ice and ends with the 4-Cylinder Open and Outlaw Class finals
around 6 p.m. EST. Last year's event drew over 1,000 spectators from
Kahnawake, Montreal and surrounding areas, and organizers are expecting this
year's races to be even bigger and better than before, with 2,200+ spectators
expected to attend the day's events. Admission for Kahnawake residents and
kids under 12 is free and all non-residents $10. Along with an action packed
day of races and fun for the entire family, the local U-16 North American
Indigenous Games girls soccer team, team Eastern Door, will be out in force,
selling 50/50 tickets, collecting admission fees and preparing and selling
food at the concession stand. All proceeds from admission and 50/50 tickets as
well as concession sales will go to help the girls soccer team pay travel
expenses.
    "I've said from the get go that one of the biggest motivators for signing
the licensing deal with Bodog and setting the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group up in
Kahnawake was to help support the local community and its economy as much as
possible," says Morris Mohawk Gaming Group CEO Alwyn Morris. "This is just the
first of many events the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group and Bodog plan to sponsor
in and around Kahnawake, and we're happy to be a part of the community's
growth and development."
    Montreal and its surrounding areas are renowned for having some of the
best ice racing in the world and the Morris Mohawk Gaming Group and Bodog
sponsored CMRC National Ice Racing event in Kahnawake is guaranteed to please
fans of the sport and make converts of those that aren't.
