The Brandon Kinsmen entered our float in the Santa Claus Parade. This year we had the Delorean Time Machine tribute car, the Mystery Machine tribute van, and one of the PASCAR race cars. The kids loved seeing Scooby and we also had some nice comments about the Delorean. We were pleased it went over well. Kudos to all the other floats and thanks to the organizers, it went smoothly as always.
Here are some pics:
PASCAR held our first public race day on May 31, 2015. There was a great turn out and very exciting racing action.
Most of our race teams from last year have returned, and their cars were better than ever. We also had some new teams, and all told we had more cars on our first day of racing in 2015 than we had on our best day in 2014. And we know there are more teams building more cars, so look for 2015 to be a great year of racing!
The track has seen many improvements. The bleachers have been upgraded, a new flag stand was built, and space added for concessions. Also, the derelict structures have been taken care of.
Our next race day is June 28, 2015, see you there!

Opening on Saturday, May 30, the Kinsmen and Kinette Clubs of Brandon have been featured in a new exhibit at the Brandon General Museum and Archives – Web Site http://www.bgma.ca/
We were pleased when the museum approached us to produce an exhibit to highlight the important contributions we have made to the Brandon community in our 90 year history. The museum staff were great to work with as we selected artifacts from our club to loan for the exhibit.
The exhibit will run through the summer of 2015, intending to coincide with the Brandon Kin hosting the Kin Canada National Kinvention in August. The public is invited to view the exhibit during normal opening hours:
Summer hours: (June – August)

The 2015 Ride For The Breath Of Life at Cycle Boyz will be held on June 6, 2015.
We are changing the format this year. We are proud to announce a partnership with Cycle Boyz Customs. We are moving our weekend and site. No longer at the Sobey’s parking lot on the Saturday before Fathers Day. Instead, the event will be at
Cycle Boyz Customs
358 Park Ave. East
Brandon, Manitoba, Canada
Phone: (204) 726-4641
Registration will be 9 am on June 6, 2015.
The route is Brandon-Kenton-Sandy Lake-Rapid City-Brandon.
We will no longer draw cards for a poker hand, but draw a numbered poker chip out of a bucket, numbered 1-30. This means the best possible score would be 150 (5 times 30) and worst possible score would be 5 (5 times 1). There is a cash prize for best and worst score.
Funds raised will go to support Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Regretfully, due to low advance ticket sales, the Kinsmen Club of Brandon has cancelled the upcoming April 18, 2015 Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament at the Double Decker.
We thank all who were interested and bought in ahead of time, and apologize that we could not proceed with the event. We are contacting all ticket holders to arrange a refund.
We will attempt to host another event in the future.

What a great reaction the Kinsmen Club of Brandon float got in the 2014 Brandon Santa Claus parade! We featured a PASCAR stock car and the “Mystery Machine” fan tribute van, (did you notice the special appearance by Scooby Do?)
For all those who want to see “Behind the Scenes” at a race track, come out to the Souris Race Park on Sunday September 14, 2014. PASCAR will be holding another “Test and Tune” day. This is an opportunity for our racers to bring their cars out to the track and run some practice laps and try new setups without it being public race conditions. This event is not open to the public and there will be no spectator services. Everyone on the property will be required to sign a waiver of liability. However if you want to see a race car up close, are interested to see what goes in to building our class of cars, or would just like more information, please come see us on Sunday.
