SARANAC LAKE – The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee is seeking contestants for the Arctic Golf Build-an-Obstacle Contest on February 1 between 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Prescott Park, next to the Lake Flower State Boat Launch.
The contest is intended for community organizations or businesses, however it is open to anyone that would like to build a family-friendly miniature golf obstacle out of snow. Contestants will build the obstacle, test its functionality and complete it before 4:00 p.m. to be ready for the Arctic Golf event which is open to the public the following day. Prizes will be awarded for the three most creative obstacles; first place wins $100 and a medal, and second and third place win a medal.
Members of the Winter Carnival Royalty will choose the winning obstacles on February 2. Signs announcing the winners will be placed on the obstacles, as well as the name of the organization or business that built it. The winners will also be announced on the Winter Carnival website and Facebook page, and in a local news press release.
The contest registration form is available on the carnival's website at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com, and must be submitted in advance of the event. It's a great opportunity to have fun, showcase the talent in our community, and potentially win $100 to benefit a local organization.
