10-Dog Pool Added, UPDATE!

Hello to all you 10-dog, pro class mushers!

After meeting with our trail crew and viewing the trail with our Race Marshall, Lyle Ross (a retired musher of 20+ years), we have decided to make a few changes.  Lyle says that we have a few downhill sections that have “marginal” snow conditions, and with this in mind, we are going with a Stage Stop-style dog pool format.  This will give you the option to run as many dogs as 10 and as few as 7, and also pull fresh dogs in for the second stage.  We made this decision to keep, specifically the Friday night stage, as safe as possible.  We hope everyone will know that we seek to make this race as safe as possible for the dogs and the drivers.

If you need to, you can call Lyle Ross at 906-360-9830 with further questions.  You can also call me as Race Director with any questions or concerns:  Josh Brindle, 765-376-4344
