Ice Racing Club celebrates 2013 season

MOULTONBOROUGH — The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club gathered at the Moultonboro Lion's Club recently to celebrate the conclusion of the 2013 ice racing season. The evening started with a social hour with appetizers, beverages, and lots of stories about this season's five ice races. 
The many hard working club volunteers, from the gate people to the plow guys, were recognized, special awards were presented, and the race division champions were crowned. Trophies for the champions went to Matt Morrill of Moultonboro for the V8 Stock class, Rick Martel of Moultonboro in the Modified class, Tim Chase of Northfield for the 4-Cylinder class, and Chris Taylor of Moultonboro in the Junior class.
The club's biggest event of the season was the 29th annual Latchkey Cup charity race held on Berry Pond. The race is held on Saturday so that fellow racers from the New England Ice Racing Association from the Milton area and the Jaffery Ice Racing Association can take part. This year's event raised $5,150 which will go to worthy causes in the Lakes Region. Donations have already been made to benefit two local people with cancer and further donations are going to scholarships for students at Moultonborough Academy, Inter-Lakes High School and Kingswood High School.
