Easter weekend – part 1

We spent the weekend at the small settlement of Sammakko (meaning frog in Finnish) with Jenny, Hasse

and the children where we hired two small cabins for the weekend.

On Saturday we were joined by many other people who had come to watch or participate in the annual snow scooter drag racing competition.

The competitors have to race two at a time from a standing start along a distance of about 50 metres.

The winner goes through to the next round until finally 1st, 2nd and third place winners are achieved.  Each competitor pays 300 Swedish Krones to enter and this is the prize fund.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In the evening myself and Hasse went out with the snow scooter for a couple of hours at dusk, listening for owls in the forest.  Hasse heard an Eagle Owl call briefly but I heard nothing.
