CAMDEN – It was tough sledding in Camden last weekend.

The Camden Snow Bowl played host to the 2019 U.S. National Toboggan Championships Feb. 8-10. Hundreds of people formed teams of two, three or four and took their shot at sledding stardom by hitting the chute. This was the 28th year of the event.

Our Kevin Bennett was there, taking photos of the thrills, chills and spills that come with this wintertime tradition. Here are just a few.
