Broadcast of the Camden National Toboggan Championships
Maine Coast TV will be providing live coverage of this year's annual National Toboggan Championships taking place February 7- 9 at the Camden Snow Bowl. The coverage will be available to all Time Warner subscribers in Knox County.
Ned Lightner, a volunteer producer for Belfast Community TV also works part time at the Camden Snow Bowl. Last year he and Toboggan Master Stuart Young discussed the possibility of offering a live stream of the toboggan races so the folks getting warm in the lodge might watch what was going on at the chute. That idea expanded to providing the live feed to local cable viewers via Maine Coast TV.
Robert Nichols and Craig Mathieson of Maine Coast TV were enthusiastic about the idea and offered technical assistance to make it happen. The folks at the Snow Bowl were also excited and are making sure there is a good strong internet connection at the chute, which will make it possible to transmit the signal.
A camera will be located at the top of the chute to capture the colorful costumes and nervous energy of the toboggan teams. A second camera looking up from the timing shack will capture the toboggans' rapid descent down the chute. Commentary will be provided by the live announcer at the timing shack and supplemented by Al Gardner, a local television personality who produces "Out and About with Al Gardner".
The live coverage is scheduled to take place on Friday, February 7 from 4-6:30 pm and Saturday, February 8 from 8 to 4 pm. Maine Coast TV is located on Time Warner Channel 7 on converter boxes and set top boxes and on Channel 121-7 on digital TVs without set top boxes. The broadcast is available to all Time Warner subscribers in Knox County, Maine, including the islands of North Haven and Vinalhaven.
For those without cable, it can also be seen on computers locally or worldwide at Maine Coast TV, www.MaineCoast.TV or the Camden Snowbowl, www.camdensnowbowl.com.
