donjeep By the descriptions on the walls by the valves this is a Flanger or plow. The one description is for the "wings" to be out or in, which would lead me to believe it is a combination of the two, possibly a "Jordan Spreader".

donjeep Was this Raceway to get slots? If it fell through is that why it is closed?

donjeep The roadway is being watched very close right now as well as the grounds. There was a deliberate fire set and shingles piled in the road opposite Camp 30 grounds this week. Be forewarned, DRPS are watching you!

donjeep Yeh, I see this place and I think of how nice the Oshawa Harbour area could be. This place has been derelict for most of the last 6 years.
