Zany 'Downhill Derby' offers family fun

CHESTERTOWN - For 35 years, local residents have fashioned weird craft - anything from simple cardboard creations to complex or bizarre feats of engineering - to slide down the short snowy slope of Dynamite Hill Ski area.

The fun-filled Krazy Downhill Derby & Broomball Tournament has been a way for local residents to fend off cabin fever by socializing, mixed with some friendly competition.

This year's event, was rescheduled by its sponsor, the North Warren Chamber of Commerce, to Saturday March 6, at the ski area on Rte. 8 in Chestertown.

The sport of broomball, with its enthusiastic practitioners, will also capture spectators' attention.

Broomball registration will be at 9 a.m., with a start time on the ice at 9:30 a.m. Derby registration is at 11 a.m. and the downhill race begins at noon.

Activities are open to the public.

Chili and hot dogs will be available inside Dynamite Hill's warming hut. For entry forms and details, call the Chamber office at 494-2722.
