SADDLEBACK "SNOW-OUT" CONTEST
...STILL HOLDING
Looking up the Wheeler Slope
on June 11, 2014
 
We have now passed the predicted SNOW OUT dates of over 70% of our participants in the Saddleback SNOW OUT contest. This final snow pile on the Wheeler slope is about 25 feet in diameter and an estimated 18" deep. When will it go?  
 
OUTDOOR SPORTING HERITAGE MUSEUM
TROPHY TROUT AND SALMON EXHIBIT
OPENS SATURDAY
On June 14th the  Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum will open a new exhibit featuring old mounts, drawings, paintings and tracings that have helped to fashion the Rangeley Region's wonderful history. The response from the community for loans and donations of artifacts for this event has been tremendous and the background behind these treasures is fascinating. "Rangeley's Famous Trout and Salmon" promises to be the most ambitious and exciting event at OSHM since its opening in August 2010.
