Ottawa club looking for truck

The Ottawa Pacers Speed Skating Club is looking to purchase a newer truck this year for maintenance of the outdoor, 400m long track oval at Brewer Park. It will need to be a 4x4 and have little to no rust. The Club relies heavily on the use of a truck for both the building and maintenance of the ice.  Ideally, it would need to be purchased before the winter season begins. If you know of one or have any contacts you could forward who could assist in locating a truck, please contact Andrea McCormack at 613-523-4493 or oval@ottpacers.ca
