TRENARY — The 15th annual Trenary Outhouse Classic is scheduled for the last Saturday in February, Feb. 23, on Main Street, Trenary. Childrens racing begins at 2 p.m. followed by big kids and then by adults 50 and older. All participants must be registered by 1:30 p.m.

Outhouses are built out of wood and cardboard, and must have a toilet seat and roll of toilet paper inside. They (outhouses) must be put on skis (metal will be disqualified) and pushed 50 feet one-by-one by two racers. Push bars are not to exceed 16 inches for adult racers, and children 12 and under should have push bars on each side for safety. Skis or a toboggan may be used for children runners. This year’s theme is “Bring Your Dear to the 15th Ever Trenary Outhouse Classic.”

Many prizes, cash prizes and drawings will also be available. All proceeds are given back to the Trenary community.

Entry pins are $1 in advance or $2 the day of the race. For more information on dimensions and categories of outhouses or to register, contact Dianne at (906) 446-3210, Sherry at 446-3471 or Cindy at (906) 387-5806.
