Spent 20 minutes on the 2 sites. I must be tired but I cannot find anywhere the date of the actual game. It should be prominently displayed everywhere. Also no information on tryout dates and costs.

I only recognize 2 names on the underclassmen roster and no one on the senior roster. Where is this organization based? Ontario? Elsewhere? Does the team meet and practice before they go?
How is this event compared to the International Bowl? Same type of event or different? Are there any confirmed scouts/coaches/media at this event? Anyone know what the costs are and what they cover?

Where is this organization based? Ontario? Elsewhere?

Based out of the US. Organizer is part of a family that are the owner of a professional football team down south. 

Does the team meet and practice before they go?

Yes, itinerary sent out, starts on Feb 11-check in, several practices, one on one interviews, media day, testing, game, banquet, ect..

How is this event compared to the International Bowl?

Very similar, top quality players, top quality coaches, great opportunity and learning experience for the players

Same type of event or different?

Similar, players will have full days of activity leading up to game, ending in banquet. To add, North American Gridiron Bowl to be part of this event-its collegiate players who are free agents looking to play professional -several coaches and scouts will be in attendance...nagridironbowl.com 

Are there any confirmed scouts/coaches/media at this event?

Yes, as outlined on website, several current and former professional players coaching the players and owner of professional team will be present. North American Gridiron Bowl also outline scouts and coaches that will be there.

Anyone know what the costs are and what they cover?

Everything covered, from entire game uniforms, helmets, full days of events, hoodies, track suits, ect, for a very minimal cost-less than 500..im sure a lot is funded through the owner and his team...only thing not covered is flight..but everything else is 

Hope this answers some of your questions.

I agree, not to be rude, but I only recognize one or two names combined.  Where was this advertised/marketed?  Clearly they did not reach a large market.  Most of Ontario's big studs are not on that list.

There are always kids who don't bother with allstar games. Amen Ogbongbemiga in Calgary is 5th ranked in Canada and OSU commit.  I don't think he ever tried out for an allstar team. That could be the case with some of the "big names" you're missing.

Some of the guys youre missing could be headed to Texas instead of North Dakota. The International Bowl is a bigger stage against teams that include some 4-star recruits and is broadcast on ESPN3 - but that doesn't mean that a game like this isn't worth attending.

Now that the International Bowl is completed, it will be interesting to see how these Canadian kids do. 10 of the USA Senior team players have signed Div 1 LOI on the national signing day. Hopefully it won't be a lopsided affair.

They were begging for players to come play two weeks ago, saw on FB one of there players with a T-shirt for practice jersey. 

Another group shamelessly preying on parents willing to do Anything to help there kids get recruited.

This event is not worth time or money

Between all 4 teams approximately 160-170 kids in attendance. No apparel bag with several articles of clothing handed out as promised, no uniforms were ever ordered and provided from jersey, pants, socks,ect. doing the math-66000 US

Sadly, kids attended with the understanding that mostly all was provided. Just travel and hotel to be taken care of by yourself. 3 Hotels to choose from. Those peace of sh*ts didn't even show up and stay all weekend. One quick "Cameo" appearance then they left. Dad showed up Sunday to try and do damage control. Police called and followed dad like a little puppy cause kids/parents were ready to pounce.

Some coaches showed at there expense, they got duped as well. From my observations, great coaches for what they had. Blades(NFL), Stokes(CFL), and others.

Adam RITA attended event to watch some of his kids and do some scouting. Learning this was a debacle, he jumped in and head coached the Underclassman Canadian kids.

A New Canada Prep school was in attendance promoting their school. (Patrick Fife)-RICC, he provided a shirt and shorts and pamphlets  to all kids in which they wore for Friday and Saturday.

The BIG WINNER of all this is those ass*oles who took everyone's money. As well, the promoting of the free agent professional football game. So Friday and Saturday night after all the kids left the Alerus Centre, professional football players practiced for their Game Sunday Night at 7PM. They are currently free agents and are looking at signing a contract to play professional. And you guessed it Will and Bill MATTIS run that as well. Kids probably paid for those guys. One parent stated he thought he saw Will hiding in a press box watching.

One thing I can say, I was very impressed with some of the kids in attendance. They certainly had the "x" factor and will definitely play at the next level and excel. I saw first hand a hand full of 4.5 to 4.8 runners.

Sounds like a class action lawsuit is being compiled from both US and Canada side. I guess its good to have several parents who are lawyers , that were present; got duped as well,  and witnessed this mess.
