Camden Snow Bowl Postpones U.S. Toboggan Nationals Until 2022
According to the Camden Snow Bowl website, the 31st annual Toboggan Nationals have been postponed until 2022.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 31st annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships, originally scheduled to happen February 5th through the 7th, 2021, have been moved to next year. After many attempts and brainstorming on how they could still make it happen, it just isn't safe enough to do so.
“We had developed a plan to run half the number of teams, with 25 percent of the number of racers and no spectators,” said Committee Co-Chairman Stuart Young.
“And while we felt these numbers would be manageable in terms of adhering to Maine’s Covid-19 mandates, the rise and continued high numbers of infections makes it impossible to assure a safe event,” said Co-Chairman Holly Anderson.
“While we are saddened that our event, like so many others in Maine, as well as the entire country, has been impacted by the pandemic, we know this tough decision is the right one. And to all the racers who have been calling and emailing me, we know you will join us in making the 31st annual the celebratory event that it should be, that it will be,” said Anderson.
For the past 30 years, Camden Snow Bowl has hosted the U.S National Toboggan runs in February, and next year will be no different. The newly postponed dates are set to happen from February 11th thru the 13th of 2022.
