Two Rivers 100/200 Prizegiving

This evening the Two Rivers Lodge hosted the finish banquet and prize giving for the Two Rivers 100/200.

Thank you to the committee and volunteers for putting on the race - we know a lot of hard work went into pulling everything together! Thanks also to Abbie West and her trail crew for a fantastic trail. There were so many who remarked how it was well marked and a really good test for the dogs.

Congratulations to all the award winners - please go to the TRDMA Facebook page for a full list.

Aliy won this beautiful wooden plaque and an ax, which, for a musher is an excellent and most useful prize. Thank you!

We have a bunch of photos and some video to sort trough and edit and will get to you asap. We're working on team wrap ups also and hope to have them to you during the week.

Who could ax for anything more? (Gershwin) what a great experience for everyone involved! Congratulations to every member of the team. It was thrilling here too.

Yes- who could ask for anything more? Thank you to all on the SP Kennel team - the big team - everyone who contributes to the overall goals - it was a great race to follow and I'm so proud of the 4-leggeds and the 2-leggeds. How a person can be 'proud' of dogs and humans she has never met - it's hard to describe - but I am proud of you all. What a class act - that's it. That's what I think as I follow your lives and the lives of the 4-leggeds in your care. DUTCH AND IZZY! GO! And Spark, my dear one, you are destined for greatness but you have to learn how to Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..... :)
