Unfortunately we have had to withdraw our three teams from the Alpine Creek Excursion Sled Dog Race this weekend. We've had some ongoing "dog truck issues" and decided to make the call earlier this week to ensure those on the wait list for the race had enough time to prepare.
The good folks at Auto Trim Design Fairbanks as well as Gene's Chrysler Dodge have been working with Allen to decipher the cause of the problem. We hope to have all of the dog trucks back at the kennel today. Since our goal is always to race as many SP Kennel dogs as possible, we obviously need reliable transportation to get them to the starting line.
We will stay in Two Rivers this weekend and, as we have had a generous snowfall over the past week, we may just simulate the race on our own trails!
We are disappointed as we were looking forward to racing, but as is a favorite saying here at SP Kennel: "It's never easy". We wish all the competitors and organisers a safe and successful race on Saturday.
