Founded in 1994 by former commercial airline pilot Paul Sass, The Home Vintner supplies connoisseurs and novices with an abundance of award-winning pours and do-it-yourself kits for individual winemaking and beer brewing. With Winexpert kits, at-home vino makers blend varietal juices from around the world that will be ready to drink or cellar in 4–8 weeks, depending on the kit. Alternatively, brewers dive into barley bubbles with Barons beer kits that contain measured ingredients to make a hoppy Canadian blond ale, an English-style redwood ale, and a crisp Dutch-style lager, among others.

During classes, the staff of certified wine- and beer-makers walks pupils through each step of the brewing and vintning process, such as carbon-dioxide removal, corking, storage, and determining each libation's year by monitoring its reaction to different Bon Jovi songs. Courses dispense both basics of production and new methodologies, so apprentices can discover new approaches and skills to try with their next batches.

A Class A member of the Professional Golfers Association of Canada since 1995, Bill Dreger takes a relaxed, conversational approach while helping others improve their golf game. Low-stress lessons incorporate the TrackMan launch monitor system, a computerized program that uses Doppler radar to measure 21 dimensions of the swing, including club speed, swing plane, launch angle, backspin, and post-swing pirouette. In addition to providing a wealth of data, the system also captures video footage of the swing, helping golfers to recognize and breakdown swing imbalances.

nonstopGOLF also offers the TrackMan Combine, a 60-shot standardized test that identifies golfers' strengths and weaknesses. By using Doppler radar to measure shots' distances and scoring them from 1 to 100, golfers receive an individualized report highlighting best and worst shots, as well as recommendations for practice tactics, equipment adjustments, and on-course strategies. With no mulligans and each shot scored, the TrackMan Combine can heighten accountability and self-competition or the package can be split between two people to for head-to-head competition.

At Impact Combat Simulations, airsoft players sweep through the training space, ducking behind a van, peeking out from a pile of debris, or dashing in and out of the doorways of shelters constructed from giant wooden boards. It’s a realistic combat environment that can be customized to different scenarios.

Six independent banks of T4 fluorescent lights and four halogen lamps can be cranked up to create a bright, illuminated playing field or dimmed down for a dark, spooky setting. Broken down cars with cracked windshields join the teal van, making the game scenarios look more realistic than a B-movie monster whose extra arm keeps coming unglued.

Impact also keeps its players supplied with full-metal AEGs, gas blow-back rifles, and pistols, as well as an arsenal of BBs.
