Fifth Annual – Crate’s Belleville Hearty Soup Contest 2019

Crates Soup

Jan 24, 2019

It has become tradition at Crate’s and we welcome everyone again on Saturday, February 16 from 11am – 3pm at Showroom at Crate’s, 5 Dundas St West Belleville, Ontario! To change things up we have decided to also make it a skating party so lace up!

If you were one of the fortunate ones that made it out last year to our fourth annual cook-off you would have been witness to some of the best soups around. With the beautiful ice in the harbor we are also going to have a rink setup with our fire pit going and hot chocolate on hand. If this years’ competition is anything like last year we are in for a treat, so insure you are creative with your crock pot. 

If you are new to the marina or were not able to make it last year, here’s your chance to be a part of our Fifth annual cook-off. Bring your crock pot filled with your favorite recipe, a pair of skates, hockey sticks and an appetite for a chance to win one of three prizes from our ships store.

Tables will be set up in the showroom with hydro for you to plug in and heat up your winning soup! The fire pit will be nice and warm outside with hot chocolate being served on the ice. Everyone is Welcome, you do not have to enter the contest, you do not have to skate or bring anything let’s just have a good time. 

Everyone is a judge, everyone can vote, there is only one rule…  you must not vote for your own bowl of soup….

Beverages will be provided – Please tell all your fellow boaters and RSVP so we can plan appropriately.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
