    what is an OUTHOUSE RACE?!?
    Well, take a few moments to read all about it! You will at least be smarter about something you've never even thought about...BETTER YET, you'll decide to believe it when you see it and decide to join us on February 23, 2008.

    what:
    Home-made outhouses made of wood, cardboard, etc...which are built on skis and pushed by 2 "Racers". Each year has a different theme. This year's theme is
        "Bring your dear
        to the 15th ever
        Trenary Outhouse Classic


      Some outhouses are very simple and built for speed. Most are funny and some are so elaborate you wouldn't mind having them in your backyard!

    The outhouses are Pushed one-by-one approximately 500 feet down the Main Street of Trenary, Michigan USA. The Adult racers with the best times win cash for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places. Depending on age there's 5 different categories and there are more prizes for different categories that have nothing to do with how fast one goes (No pun intended, Yah, Right!).


    who:
    Anyone who has a sense of humor or needs one! Some folks like to build, some like to race and EVERYONE likes to watch!

    where:
    Main Street in TRENARY situated smack-dab in the middle of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (Population may be 400 except for the Outhouse Classic day when it reaches 4000 Plus!) You have to buy some Trenary Toast before leaving. It is great and only made in Trenary. The ice fishing in this area is also great. Try some of the local establishments for fantastic fish dinners. They even have a fisherman's breakfast at some restaurants that give you pan fried trout and eggs!

    when:
    Every last Saturday in February! This event gets held rain or shine; 30 below or 40 degrees! Dress warmly! (Yep, that makes it an Annual Event)!

    Races begin at 2:00 PM EST! Yes! We are in the Eastern Time Zone for those people coming from out of state. Little Kids Races begin at 2:00 PM followed by Big Kids followed by Adults 50 and over! *Must be registered by 1:30 PM EST*.


    why:
      Fun, Fun, Fun!
      Beats Cabin Fever...
      Fun, Fun, Fun!
      What else is there to do in the middle of winter?
      Fun, Fun, Fun!
      Good stories to tell your friends...
