As you all know, there hasn’t been much snow in the past 6 weeks.
If some doesn’t fall soon, the 2013 New England Runner Sled Championship may have to be cancelled.
This isn’t ideal, but right now there is not a speck of white stuff on the backside of Hogback.
Stay tuned and pray for snow.
Brian Trahan nipped GW Martin in the last race of the finals round to claim the 2012 title of Fastest Runner Sledder in All the Land. Congratulations Brian!
The title of “Fastest Runner Sledder in all the Land” will belong to one of these racers when the ice dust settles on February 25, 2012 on the backside of Hogback Mountain.
Everyone is invited to come and cheer on your favorite racer, try out the course for yourself and just generally hang out in the Waldo County winter.
