Maine recaptures World Championship Ice Carousel record | #wordnews | #evesarkisyan

ST. AGATHA, Maine — The Long Lake ice was melting fast on Saturday under a warm spring sun, but a determined group of northern Maine volunteers worked faster to make a 27-acre circular chunk of lake ice spin and recapture the World Championship Ice Carousel Record.

Northern Maine Ice Busters last Friday carved a disc with a diameter of 1,234 feet out of the icy lake in just one day using chainsaws and one of two inventions designed by St. Agatha plumber Roger Morneault.

The Ice Buster volunteers on Friday used augers to drill 1,280 holes in perfect precision, thanks to volunteer surveying efforts from Sackett and Brake Survey Inc. Morneault’s trencher cut between the holes to complete the disc, which measured in at a circumference of 3,800 feet.
