The Lanark Trades Tournament


On Friday, May 13th, 2016, at 4:00pm, it’s the first of its kind – THE LANARK TRADES TOURNAMENT.

In support of the Perth Enrichment Program and have some fun with the Lanark Leeds Home Builders Association and anyone else who dare to challenge theirskills, we are excited to note that the Lanark Trades Tournament will be one of the Perth Settlement’s 200th Anniversary Events.

Local businesses and tradespeople are invited to submit teams to compete in timed relay events associated with the skilled trades; includes a beer garden!

Funds raised from the Tournament will be used directly to support the Perth Enrichment Program for Older Adults and its clients as well as build camaraderie between local Trades businesses.

19Two teams will run head-to-head through a relay of events in a tag-team style (e.g., one team member completes the first event, then passes the baton to the next team member who completes the second event, then passes the baton to a third team member who completes the third, etc.) There will be a series of stations (expecting 9) in which a team member is chosen to compete in the individual task. The top two teams will meet in the finals where each team will compete to build the best picnic table in the shortest time.

The cost for entering a team is $250.00
Student Rate: $125.00
Teams are encouraged to dress in company attire.

A cash beer tent will be available during the hours of the tournament.
