Storm delay for toboggan championships
CAMDEN, Maine (AP) -- The show will go on for the National Toboggan Championships -- after a storm delay.
Officials say registration and practice runs are being held Friday as scheduled but Saturday's races will be postponed for a day because of the snowstorm that's sweeping into the state.
Linda Varrell, a race spokeswoman, says officials at the Camden Snow Bowl decided not to attempt to hold races on Saturday with a blizzard warning overnight for much of the cost. Instead she says all racing will be held Sunday with a reduced schedule, followed by an awards ceremony.
More than 400 teams registered for the event, which features tobogganeers, sometimes in crazy costumes, racing down a 400-foot chute.
