Chestertown's Downhill Derby: The Bottom or Bust

Listen to this story
Almost every community in the North Country has one this time of year - a favorite sledding hill. It might be in someone's backyard or at a nearby recreation center. A place where kids and non-motorized sleds rule. Tomorrow morning, dozens will climb Dynamite Hill in Chestertown for the Krazy Downhill Derby and Broomball Tournament. The sleds, and their drivers, come in all shapes and ages. At last year's event, Joyce Houck, with the North Warren Chamber of Commerce, told Todd Moe that the rules are simple: build a sled and get it to the bottom of the hill, even if it has to be carried.
