The Finishers' Banquet and Prizegiving for the 2013 Iditarod was held this evening at the Nome Recreation Centre and there was a massive crowd. The major awards were given out and each finishing musher was given an opportunity to speak to thank supporters and sponsors and tell a few tales from the trail. The general theme for the evening was that this race was "challenging" and that there were many, many good teams out there. Congratulations to all of the award winners!
