THE MEXICALI TRIBE TAKES ON THE 2017 U.S. NATIONAL TOBOGGAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

THE MEXICALI TRIBE TAKES ON THE 2017 U.S. NATIONAL TOBOGGAN CHAMPIONSHIPS

The U.S. National Toboggan Championships have been going on at the Camden Snow Bowl since 1936, with traditional wooden toboggan sleds racing down a 400-foot-long wooden chute (with some zooming at close to 40 mph!), ending the ride on frozen Hosmer Pond. It’s an awesomely fun community event, and teams show off their creativity as well as their racing skills by designing their own speedy sleds and rocking crazy costumes.

This year, we sponsored a sled piloted by Mexicali pals called the “Mexicali Tribe” team. Mexicali co-owner Pete has been off traveling in search of new Mex magic for spring, but he was the honorary 5th member of the team, with a laminated pic of his happy face taped to the front of the sled. The team rocked tie dye pants that they made using our own Mexicali DIY tie dye kit  and white Thai fisherman pants. They also made Pete a pair that they used as a flag at their ‘campsite’. It was a magnificently merry day, and the Tribe finished 61st out of 146, with a top time of 9.51 seconds! Winter in Maine is no joke, but we sure know how to make the best of it!
