Saturday Events Being Reworked

After some discussion and great feedback, we are reworking the events on the Saturday a bit, in order to ensure the participants get as much involvement in the weekend events as possible. There was some concern expressed about the gravel road leading out to Kings Park Speedway. So, with that said, even though it's only about a kilometre or two of gravel, to accomodate those that don't wish to take their pride and joy on the dirt road, we will be having the Show and Shine with Burnout Contest, Stereo Competition and Monster Truck Rides, elsewhere in the City, and then a cruise out to Kings Park around 2 or 3pm (Location and Time to be confirmed) for those that want to partake in the Street Car Challenge. If we are unable to have the burnout contest in the City, we will also be holding the burnout contest at Kings Park Speedway that day.

We appreciate the feedback and are willing to work in a way that is advantageous for everyone involved!

Titan Automotive Group $5,000 Non-Profit Challenge!

Good afternoon Regina!!!

As you may or may not already know, I have the pleasure of being president of a brand new Non-Profit Corporation based here in Regina, Saskatchewan, by the name of Prairie Soul Productions Inc. We at Prairie Soul are dedicated to giving back to our great community, and are very proud to be assisting the Chili for Children Program this year for our 2nd Annual Queen City Cruise In. In future years, we hope to be in a financial position to give to even more local charities, with the focus on remaining local. We believe strongly in supporting local businesses when we host events, and supporting local charities because there are many great folks in Regina that could really use the extra assistance, through a variety of existing local charities.

Keeping this in mind, we are participating in the Titan Automotive $5,000 Non-Profit Challenge!! These great folks have been gracious enough to put up to $5,000 as a total prize for a variety of Non-Profits, and we are very proud to be one of the contestants. The challenge is very easy; all you have to do is click this link,, read our description and video (optional) and click the "VOTE" button. That's it!! That easy. And, for me, the best part of this challenge is, the more total votes cast for all entries, the higher the total payout that Titan Automotive Group is going to give out. However, in order to qualify for a portion of the payout, a contestant must receive at least 100 votes, and then they get a portion of the total payout, depending on their percentage of votes, so please share with your friends and family.

Unfortunately, we, at Prairie Soul, are challenged in this City in terms of receiving any public funding, thanks to certain individuals being in high-ranking positions in this City (and provincial crowns now). BUT, the great thing is, we don't need no stinking public funding to make our non-profit a true success story!! We have great folks that have been partnering up with us like crazy, and it's thanks to great local businesses like Titan Automotive Group that we can continue making great events happen in Regina, without a sole focus on making a profit.

When asked why I chose to make Prairie Soul Productions Inc. a non-profit, the answer is simple really, and probably not one you will believe or expect from someone that honestly doesn't make that much money. I want to run a successful business, where I can do what I love, and be able to make a decent living. I don't want or need to make a fortune doing it, and as such, I have chosen to make it a Non-Profit Corporation, which gives back to it's community in so many great ways. The only real difference between a For-Profit and a Non-Profit, is that a Non-Profit simply reinvests (and donates) it's end of the year profits into the company and community. It still can operate like a regular business, paying salaries, employing great people, all that. It's just a personal choice that I made so that there could never be any confusion as to why my company does what it does, and no possible "conflict of interests" like certain other politicians in our great City.

Thank you for your time, and PLEASE do share this with everyone you know!! This is a very good cause, and we would appreciate all the support you can give us.

Have a GRREEAT Regina Day!!
