WinterFest week in Jackson Hole wraps up this weekend with several activities including the second annual ski jouring competition south of town.  Event Chairman Lou Scarlett says the Jackson Hole Shriners who put the event on anticipate about thirty teams this year.  He says, “We’re expecting more powerful teams coming out of Colorado, Utah, Idaho, and we’ll get some from Montana as well – it’s sounding like we’re going to have quite a race.”  Scarlett says the Shrine Club is looking for skiers interested in competiting for prize money.  They can sign up tonight beginning at 6:00 pm at the Elks Club.  Scarlett adds that in spite of the deterioration of the track last weekend which led to the cancellation of the second day of the cutter races, the track looks to be in good shape for this weekend once again.  He says it is in outstanding shape once again with the “out-run” changed to avoid the area that caused the cutter races to be shut down last weekend. Once again, Scarlett says the proceeds from the event will benefit the Shriners’ Crippled Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City.
