The Chester High School ski team traveled to Boreal Feb. 14 for its regularly scheduled race, only for it to be cancelled at the last minute by consensus of team coaches on strong recommendation from Boreal staff indicating conditions were determined to be dangerous and likely to result in injury to racers.

The race was rescheduled as a double up, slalom and giant slalom, on Feb. 17. The team again traveled to Boreal and was greeted with much more favorable conditions and wins.

Boat passenger’s violation

Question: I have my own boat and take friends out lobster fishing with me. I always make sure each person has his or her license and report card. I also make sure people have their own bags and keep each lobster they catch separate as they catch them. My question is, if the game warden finds a short lobster in one of their bags, am I held responsible as the boat owner or would the owner of that bag be responsible? Also, do boat limits apply when fishing for lobster?
