SARANAC LAKE — The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee is seeking contestants for the Arctic Golf Build-an-Obstacle Contest.

Building will be done Saturday, Feb. 1 between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Prescott Park, next to the Lake Flower state boat launch on River Street.

The contest is intended for community organizations or businesses; however, it is open to anyone who would like to build a family-friendly miniature golf obstacle out of snow. Contestants will build the obstacle, test its functionality and complete it before 4 p.m. to be ready for the Arctic Golf event, which is open to the public the following day. Prizes will be awarded for the three most creative obstacles: First place wins $100 and a medal, and second and third place each win a medal.

Members of the Winter Carnival royalty will choose the winning obstacles on Sunday, Feb. 2. Signs announcing the winners will be placed on the obstacles, as well as the names of the groups or businesses that built it. The winners will also be announced on the Winter Carnival website and Facebook page, and in a local news press release.

The contest registration form is available at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com, and must be submitted in advance of the event. If you have questions, email media@saranaclakewintercarnival.com or call Colleen O’Neill at 518-729-8933.
