Sculptors brave chill for Snow Days events

Six teams braved the past weekend’s weather to sculpt magic from snow and ice for Sicamous Snow Days.

Six teams braved the past weekend’s weather to sculpt magic from snow and ice for Sicamous Snow Days’ front yard and downtown business snow-sculpting events.

The daytime, nighttime and people’s choice judging is done, but outstanding People’s Choice ballots can still be turned in to the Sicamous Info Centre.

First, second and third placements for both the downtown and  front-yard sculptures have been awarded, and winners in the Light-up People’s Choice categories will remain a secret until the  awards ceremony at 1 p.m. on March 1, upstairs at Sicamous and District Recreation Centre (during the Sicamous Banner Project Open House).

The work of competitors in the Snow Days Photo Treasure Hunt, as well as banners, will also be on display.

Taking first place in the downtown sculpture (daytime) contest was the Sicamous Dental Clinic Team for Garfield, Poster Cat For Good Dental Hygiene. Second place went to Team Grey Power at Mackie Lane with the Hand Holding Olympic Torch. Third place went to Inkx Printing for Red Crayon.

In the front yard sculpture competition, first place (daytime) went to Team Barbie for Pirates of the Caribbean, second place to Team G. & the G. Daughts for their magical dragon Ta 2uma A of the Shuswap, and third place went to Team Grey Power for their piece, Canadian Olympic Power.

A great job was done by all teams involved. Be sure to ask them just how much fun they had sculpting, colouring and accessorizing their creations, as well as lighting them up for night judging.    Then ask Sue Miller, Carol Schlosar and Kristine Bohnsack just how much fun it was to judge.

As usual, it was an amazing weekend of snow fun, so don’t miss the excitement of the awards for the People’s Choice and Light Up winners on March 1 at 1 p.m. at the recreation centre. The Banner Project open house begins at 11 a.m.
