Only one will emerge victorious on this day. The tension mounts until a voice rings out... "Commence!" Certain to be lots of excitement and thrills!!

We also will have artifacts from the Vrooman Family of Brock Township .Their efforts at the Battle of Queenston Heights saved Canada from an invasion of 5000 American troops and helped win the battle for Sir Issac Brock and his second in command Major General Scheaffe. Also available are numerous resources that trace the history of the early settlers to Brock Township after 1818.
