Ice sculptors didn’t move as quickly as ski jumpers, but they entertained nevertheless
SALISBURY — Twelve carvers (seven professional and five amateur), competed in the annual Salisbury Winter Sports Association ice carving competition Saturday, Feb. 12, during Jumpfest weekend.
This year’s venue changed. The carvers used to wield their saws and picks on the Green in front of The White Hart Inn. On Saturday, they created their iced art on the snow-covered lawn in front of the Scoville Memorial Library.
Officials Andy Tabak and Pieter Lefferts had the difficult task of judging a talented group. The results:
First place, “The Reef,” by Matt Terzano, Waterbury.
Second place, “Bugs Love Valentines” by Gary Costa, Burlington, Conn.
Third place, “Pegasus,” by Robert Patalano, Valley Cottage, N.Y.
Fourth place, “Tinkerbell,” by Earl Covington, Highland Mills, N.Y.
First place, “Scoville Memorial Library,” by Tom Vigeant, Falls Village.
Second place, “Playful Dog,” by Marie McLeod, Windsor.
Third place, “Battlefield Memorial” by Paul Palazzo, Hartford.
