As an experienced Euro ski-O competitor, you’d probably feel right at home! But the trails are groomed for classic so you’d have to double pole.

There is ski-O in Collingwood on the March 7-8 weekend if you need a fix!

Already planning to go to the Collingwood ski-o! I'd thought it was kind of far, but it's actually a little closer than Lake Placid and with three trips to Lake Placid this month, I'm getting kind of used to 10+ hours of driving as what one does on the weekend.

DP can be fun if it isn't uphill. :)

Have you spoken with Dave Moule? He manages the trails and landowner permissions. He might be convinced to groom the trails without classic tracks for a day - especially if the event could make a donation to the Bruce Trail Conservancy.

I would talk to Dave before you spend much time on the map. He might say no. There are at least three landowners involved so it could be tricky.
