  • View participating Hotels and rates by clicking 'Hotels' at left.

  • Hotels need to know you are part of the Auld Reid Tournament when you reserve your rooms.
    Your records enable the tournament organizers to successfully apply for the Ontario Tourism Grant.
    All funds from Grants are donated to the Auld Reid Charities.
    We need you to book your rooms directly through the hotel and not book  through a 3rd party like
    hotels dot com. 
    WHY =  If you book through a third party, the Hotel does NOT donate financially to our
    charities meaning our charities loose out on much needed cash. Some of the Charities the tournament
    donates to= Food Kitchen, Salvation Army, local Hospitals, Toys for Kids etc.
