West Bay Rotarians Spruce Up The Toboggan Chute


West Bay Rotarians took advantage of the warm weather this past weekend for some much-needed maintenance of the world-famous toboggan chute at the Camden Snow Bowl. Extra care was taken to get the paint applied thick and smooth to ensure fast times for next year’s U.S. National Toboggan Championships, scheduled for February 3-5, 2023. Of course, that’s when they’ll be storing their paint brushes and rollers to coordinate parking or serve up chili for the annual Chili Challenge. All in a day’s work for busy West Bay Rotarians.
