2014 Awards Night & Banquet

The Awards Night & Banquet was held at the Pomeroy Hotel in Grande Prairie and it was excellent. Venue representatives from all stops on our tour, sponsors, drivers, staff and fans filled the hall. The Pomeroy served an excellent meal very efficiently to a full crowd.  After all the presentations, the crowd danced the night away to the music of Grande Prairie's own, well known live band, Night Riders.
