On Saturday, February 26, 2011, the City of Houghton will be hosting their annual Yooper Luge Featuring the Copper Country Cardboard Competition.
It is free to enter the competition, but registration is required. From 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. there will be registration and open sledding. At 3:00 p.m. the competition begins. After the competition, there will be more open sledding.
The event will take place on Isle Royal street (they cover it with snow) starting at Shelden Avenue between Cyberia Cafe and Wells Fargo.
For more information and rules for the competition, please check out their flyer.
This sounds like a great event to watch (one of the prizes is for the “Most Spectacular Wipeout”) and participate in!
