The Landing School is proud to announce that teams of students will be competing in this years National Toboggan Race!
Teams will compete at Camden Snow Bowl February 6th, 2016 at 10 AM. The weekend will consist of three days of events and activities. Teams and spectators gather from all over the country to celebrate the tradition of wooden toboggan racing.
From the official website, "The original toboggan chute dates back to 1937, and in 1991 it was officially dedicated as the Jack R. Williams Toboggan Chute and the first U.S. National Toboggan Championships were held, an event created by then-Camden Parks and Recreation Director Ken Bailey. In 2015, the Toboggan Championships celebrated 25 years...the annual “Toboggan Nationals” boasts a field of 425 teams, nearly 1,300 racers and more than 6,000 spectators."
This years theme at the races is for Mardi Gras and spectators and teams are encouraged to wear costumes. The Town of Camden will host a fireworks show, snowplow parade dancing and more.
The weekend runs Friday, February 5th-Sunday February 7th. The Landing School student teams will be competing Saturday, February 6th at 10 AM.
