No Guts, No Glory

Forty participants and more than 200 spectators took part in the 10th annual Snow Box Derby, held Sunday at Rotarun ski area west of Hailey. Contestants had to be at least 5 years old and their entries had to be made of only cardboard, paint, glue and duct tape. Along with Most Creative and Spirit awards, first-, second- and third-place medals were awarded to winners in the Pee Wee, Junior, Teen and Business divisions. Dave Keir, recreation director for the Blaine County Recreation District, said the event was a big success. “We are so fortunate to partner with Rotarun and the Kiwanis Club in offering a fun, friendly, family event to the community for the past 10 years,” he said.
