Games adds events

 


More events have been added to the annual Winter Games, starting 10 a.m. Saturday at the fairgrounds.

Fair assistant director Jessica Edwards said a “tea-making contest” would pit contestants against each other in a race to build a fire and boil water in a #10 can. Wood and axes will be provided.

Also, Haines Animal Rescue Kennel will sponsor a dog-pull event at 11 a.m. Dogs must be leashed. Other events will include a 10 a.m. cross-country ski race and BB gun biathlon, 11 a.m. chili cook-off and 11:30 a.m. chili feed. A hockey tournament is set for noon. Events may change due to weather.

“Every year it’s different. That’s what makes it fun,” Edwards said.
