Camden, Maine. One day, one contest. College of the Atlantic was present in this yearly competition with three teams of students determined to have fun.
We took our bags on a grey but promising Saturday morning and drove to Camden where the challenging toboggan course was waiting. Even though several hours went by before we could actually slide with our toboggans, the Championship was not only about being the fastest on the sledge, but also about reviving the sleepy energies of Winter. There was music and food, dance and friends, fires and costumes. When we finally got to the moment of the slide, where there is no turning back, all the waiting paid off. Let this video illustrate how much fun we had.
