Contest to build world's biggest ice carousel

The latest battle in a cold war involving Minnesota, Maine and Finland will be fought this weekend in Little Falls. The prize: bragging rights for who can create the world's biggest ice carousel. Ice carousels are giant lazy susans, floating circular disks cut by chainsaws on frozen lakes and propelled into a leisurely rotation by a trolling or outboard motor inserted into a hole in the ice. It's caught on in recent years as a form or frozen fun in Minnesota and other northern areas.
