SALISBURY — The Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s annual Jumpfest weekend set attendance records, even with one full day of jumping canceled due to rain.

According to Willie Hallihan, the paid attendance on Friday night, Feb. 9, for target jumping and the Human Dogsled Race, was more than 300 people.

All the Catskill rivers, with the exception of the Esopus (like the Farmington, the Esopus relies on reservoir flows) are low.

Choices for the week

This week, it’s the Buffalo Bills versus the Jets.
