The cutter race teams are here and racing begins tomorrow south of Jackson on the track at Melody Ranch.  Rod Everett of the sponsoring Shrine Club says activities at the track begin at noon.  Everett says the racers are all going for points that are totaled throughthe National Cutter Race Association with seasonal events concluding in a national competition in Ogden, Utah later in the year.  Yet, out of all the competitions, Jackson Hole provides the only track that is a snow-packed groomed track.  Watching the racing horses kicking up the snow as they run, he says makes the event even more exciting.  Parking is limited to the west side of the track, where many families gather for a tailgate party – but a free shuttle service is also available from town to the track provided by START bus. The bus may be caught on the town square, at Albertsons or at Smiths.  The $15 gate admission and profits derived from Calcutta wagering are used to support the Shriner’s Hospital in Salt Lake City which provides free treatment for children with crippling conditions.  The cutter races are the first of a week of activities in Jackson Holes third annual WinterFest.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
