Cutter Races Draw Large Crowds

Cutter

This past weekend’s Cutter Races put on by the Jackson Shrine Club are being termed by its organizers a resounding success.  While the money raised by the event has not yet been tallied, Shrine President Rod Everett says the weather cooperated and the crowds were sizable.  Everett says attendance was up about 15% at the gate, and Shriners noted cars from 26 different states in the parking lot.  Everett guesses there must have been between four and five hundred more people that they have seen in the past.  He credits advertising that was enabled through a grant from the local travel and tourism board.  There were 33 teams that raced both days and were inspired by the size of the crowds which Everett says are not common to most cutter race events.  Proceeds from the race and the Calcutta wagering prior to the event benefit the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
