Caption writing contest in Beaver Creek

Special to the DailyPeople in Beaver Creek can test their wit Saturday and Sunday during the cartoon caption writing contest, one of the main events of Humor on the Slopes, a new festival featuring eight New Yorker cartoonists. "Rat," above, by Ed Koren, is one of the illustrations needing a caption. Each participating artist will provide a snow or winter snowsports-themed captionless illustration. Guests will be invited to submit a caption to the cartoon(s) of their choice. Bob Mankoff, cartoon editor for The New Yorker, will select one winner per cartoon. Winners will be announced during the panel discussion in the Gore Range Room at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek between 7-8 p.m. Winners will also be notified by e-mail.
