To the editor:

On Jan. 31, USA Luge and WSLP 93.3-FM teamed up to present annual USA Luge Toboggan Championship. This event was created to support out USA Luge Team. With the support of community leaders and sponsors who made this event possible, we raised over $3,000. All proceeds directly benefited the USA Luge team.As organizers of this cool event we were able to give away great prizes which included ski passes, maple syrup, medals, USA Luge memorabilia and cash prize.

Despite very cold weather conditions, the annual USA Luge Toboggan Championship was a great success; we had over 45 teams compete in the competition. We plan to return to the toboggan chute for next year's event.
