Invitations Go Out for 2014 Cutter Races

Cutter

Invitations are going out for next month’s 43rd Annual Cutter Races staged each year by the Jackson Hole Shriners to raise funds for the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.  Event Chairman Rod Everett says this year’s event will involve about 30 teams.  He says based on starting the races about noon, they have to be cut off around sunset and that limits the number of races that can be run to about 20 two-team races. With thirty teams, he says there will be 15 two-team races. Everett says for the second year, the Shriners will also sponsor a ski joring competition with proceeds from that also benefiting the hospital. He says ski joring was big in Jackson Hole for a while, but by 1999, it was continued because of insurance concerns and it was not a fund-raiser. Now that it is being restored, Everett says the North American Ski Jorning Association has approached the Shriners and will use the event as their North American Championships. Everett says last year’s events raised over $30-thousand helping provide free treatment for children with crippling injuries or diseases.  He adds that numerous children from Jackson Hole have benefited from the program.

    At the risk of sounding like I’ve been watching too much Top Gear, I need to go off on a bit of a rant right now. The good folks at Nissan let me drive a Titan for two full months, which was really nice of them. And it’s done a pretty good job of filling […]
