We want to thank everyone for participating and supporting our competition these past 5 years. Needless to say, these have been challenging times for everyone, including our sponsors and patrons. We do not know what the future will be so for this reason we will be reassessing next years competition. Please check back for further information. Thank you.
We would like to wish everyone good health and safety during this time. We are all in this together!
