U.S. National Toboggan Championships in Camden this weekend!

The whole town of Camden Maine is getting ready to welcome teams by across the nation to the 23rd Annual U.S.Toboggan Championships!  Held at the Camden Snow Bowl only three miles from our Inns at Blackberry Common, the races are set for the weekend February 8 to February 10, 2013.  It is a winter weekend of fun for all!
Four and two person teams are waxing up their sleds and finishing their costumes so they will be all set to fly down the 440 ft long toboggan shoot and slide across Hosmer Pond at some amazing speeds!  Not for the faint of heart...it is a thrill just to watch the teams make record time!  The events last all day Saturday with the finals and awards on Sunday! 

Need a warm up?  Head on over to the food tents and be part of the annual Chilli Cookoff!  Sample chilli made by local chefs and vote for your favorites!  Bragging rights and trophy awards are coveted for 2013!  Stiff competition mean great food for all! 

Plus there's music and lots more to do including downhill skiing, and ice skating on the pond.  Free shuttle service from right near the inn!  Book a two night stay with us and join us for dinner on Saturday evening!  Fireplaced rooms are still available and packages with hearty breakfasts and a gourmet dinner on Saturday start at just $329 this weekend only!  Call today 1-800-388-6000 as reservations are limited!
