Ice Drag Race coming in March to Marmora

By Melissa DiNardo

The Snowmobiling Ice Drag race will be happening on March 10, 2012 in Marmora. The Marmora Fire Fighters Association is spearheading the event.

According to Amanda Morrison, wife of one of the organizers Josh Morrison, there are not many events during the winter season that encourage the community to come out and connect.

“Sled dog races are the only other event that happens during the winter,” said Morrison. “Kids don’t watch the whole race happen, just the beginning and the end. This event they can part take in.”

With this in mind the Fire Fighters Association decided to organize the activity, where children are not only invited but also encouraged to participate.

The entry fee for competitors is $15 per sled, per class. Registration starts from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and races start at 11:30 a.m. Vintage sleds are welcomed.

The event is held at Crowe Lake, just off Booster Park Road in Marmora.

There will be a cash and prize table for the winners.

Admission for adults is $10 and for students it is $5.  A banquet and presentation to follow the races will be held at Bunkers Hideaway.
