Group, which he launched in 1994. A resident of Antigua,
Ayre was featured as the cover story for Forbes Magazine's

1996, Calvin Ayre reached a settlement without a hearing
with the British Columbia Securities Commission for
violations of the Securities Act, S.B.C. 1985, c.

with $10,000 to his name he started the Bodog Group
of Companies. Originally envisioning the creation
of a software company, Ayre instead set out to create
an organization and brand that could cross over into
any industry: The Bodog Entertainment Group.
