JCSPCA hosting 9th annual 'Snowflake Rally' at Dry Hill on Saturday

See also

The Jefferson County SPCA is hosting a "Snowflake Rally" at Dry Hill Ski Resort this weekend to benefit the shelter. The cardboard sled race is a fun event taking place on the ski slope. Prizes will be awarded for creativity in the creation of the sleds, and not for speed. Participants must make it to the bottom of the hill to qualify. One of the prizes is a snowboard.

Teams may have multiple members, but no more than three riders per sled.
