On Jan. 26, the Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation will hold the fourth annual Bar Stool Ski Race at the Wild Horse Saloon and Campground in Kellner.

The new hill design has proven to give the racers and spectators a new level of excitement never seen before in bar stool ski racing.

What is bar stool ski racing? Well you get a bar stool, put skis on it, and down the hill you go. You have really got to see this. It is a lot of fun.

This always has been one of our most crowd-pleasing events, and with the new hill design, we expect it to be even better this year. We usually average between 40 to 50 racers competing for cash and trophies.

Registration forms are available at many of the local taverns, businesses and on our website at www.everychildrensdream.org. Check out pictures from past races on our website. You can also call 715-886-5111 or 715-572-5757 for more information.

Advance registration is highly advised as we are limited to 50 race teams. Advance registration costs $20. Registration on the day of the race, if available, will be $30. Advance registration forms must be received by Jan. 19.

Check-in and inspection for the race will be from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. the morning of the race. The races start at noon.

To help keep you warm we will again have chili, hot dogs, and barbecue pork sandwiches along with hot cocoa, soda, beer and mixed drinks for everyone to enjoy.

Snow will not be a problem for racing. We will have plenty of snow on the hill for great racing.

When the races are over, we'll go inside for the awards presentation and special prizes for some very special people who will be attending. During the day we will have music by the Dark Horse band, and Dark Horse will play your favorite tunes from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Bring the family out for a fun-filled afternoon watching all the exciting racing action.

Proceeds will benefit the Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation.

Richard "JR" Hildebrandt is president of the Tri-City Children's Dream Foundation.
