Ice Racing on the Clyde River will take place on Saturday afternoon, beginning after dinner and ending at dark. Some of the regulars will be Artie MacPhee, Cal & Mont Hyde from Clyde River and Leslie Mitchell from Nine Mile Creek. Others will be there from the surrounding areas. Harry MacLean and Watson Livingston will be judges and Toff Beaton, starter. The people of the community will be on the sidelines cheering them on.The winner will have bragging rights. Anyone who has a fast horse can enter.
For any of you reading this in 2011, please don’t show up tomorrow, as the river doesn’t freeze over as it did then. However, it is fun to imagine how much fun they must have had and their enthusiasm for getting out in the cold weather.
