The Anything Goes Downhill Sled Race makes a return at WinterFest


By Jenelle Syverson

Special to The PREVIEW

It is back. The Anything Goes Downhill Sled Race is back on for this year’s WinterFest on Feb. 6. Registration starts at 2 p.m. and the race starts at 2:30 p.m.,so start brainstorming and building or come see for yourself how fun community creativity can be.

From past experience, it can easily be said to not be surprised to see a canoe, a satellite dish, wagon, toilet or other creative “sled” fly down Reservoir Hill. A few rules, of course. All entries must be homemade. No unmodified, store-bought sleds or skis. Speed is important — entertainment is critical. All entries must be controllable and brakes are required. An event representative will have final authority over the safety of all entries. Each entry will make three runs and the fastest average run wins. Prizes will be awarded to the three fastest entries, as well as the most creative/best decorated, the best crash and a new category this year, “Gone” Green for the best use of recycled materials.
