Welcome to Speed Rack Canada Season 2! We are excited to announce the return of Speed Rack to Canada, with national finals being held in Toronto on April 30th, 2017.
A little bit about Speed Rack:
Speed Rack is a speed bartending competition for Women in the US, now going global. Co-founded in 2011 by Ivy Mix & Lynette Marerro, the competition is on its 6th year. The competition is meant to raise funds for Breast Cancer education, prevention and research, while promoting women bartenders in an largely male promoted industry.
Regionals will be held in major cities across the country at the end of February (date & venue TBD). Any female bartenders are welcome to be involved. The regionals will happen simultaneously across all major cities, where participants will make 4 cocktails as quickly and accurately as they can. Penalties will be given to unbalanced drinks, sloppiness and low wash lines. A standard score sheet will be forwarded to each city’s industry leaders, who have agreed to help score and organize the regionals.
Please see attached for SR Canada Applications, this is to group together interested ladies from each city so we can get the regionals rolling!
This is a super exciting opportunity to place us females on a platform in this industry to show just how badass we are while simultaneously raising money for breast cancer research.
