Guelph Lake eliminated as host site of Coors Light Games

The Coors Light Games will not take place at Guelph Lake Conservation Area this summer, despite Guelph-Eramosa council’s approval of a noise bylaw exemption for the event.

The exemption, for Aug. 19 and 20, was approved at the Jan. 4 council meeting.

“I think we need to encourage more of these festivals …” said councillor Corey Woods.

The Coors Light Games is a national competition involving backyard and outdoor games.

“The guests will be taking part in outdoor activities and will be enjoying live music that will extend over 11pm,” stated Andrew Singleton of EventSing Promotions Inc. and Molson Coors in the noise bylaw exemption application.

However, when contacted by the Advertiser on Jan. 5 for more information, Singleton   said, “The event unfortunately will not be taking place in Guelph Lake this year.”

The noise bylaw exemption application was meant to provide the company with options for a home venue, Singleton explained. However, he added Guelph Lake was subsequently eliminated as a possible host site for 2016.
