Cutter Races Cancelled Sunday

Cutter

Uncommonly warm weather and a melting track led to the Jackson Hole Shrine Club having to cancel the second day of the cutter races Sunday.  Chairman Rod Everett says it was simply a matter of safety for the racers and the horses.  Everett says the problem is not exclusive to Jackson Hole events and points to the setbacks being seen at the Olympics due to warm weather.  In retrospect, Everett says, “In all the years we have hosted this we had to cancel one time and that was for the whole weekend.  We didn’t even get one day of racing!”  Everett quickly points out that it appears that on Saturday, spectators and competitors alike had fun. Everett says between the nearly 2000 who showed up at the gate Saturday, the Calcutta proceeds and proceeds from associated merchandise, he is hopeful there was enough raised to cover the costs and still have something to contribute to the Children’s Hospital.  Now, Everett says the club hopes cold weather will once again set in and the track will be rehabilitated for next weekend’s Ski Jouring competition.

    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
