We're excited to race tomorrow!
There are a few rules in place for the "semi-race": teams have a maximum of 12 dogs, there's a four hour rest at the half-way point and teams must carry all their equipment with them in the sled (including dogfood, camping equipment and straw). Other than that, general mushing etiquette will be in place relating to dog care and good trail manners.
There's only so many dogs we can run tomorrow and unfortunately some will be left at home. Aliy will race the Red Team comprised of Quito, Kodiak, Nacho, Boondocks, Willie, Clyde, Felix, Izzy, Mac, Nelson, Scooter and Scout. Their position on the team will be determined in the morning and there may be some shuffling around as the race goes on.
Kodiak and Scooter
Allen's Black Team is Scruggs, Junior, Beemer, Chica, Biscuit, Lydia, Puppet, Mismo, Schmoe, Sissy, Outlaw and Chemo.

Spencer is racing a young Red and Black Team and because it is not an official race he is going to swap out some of the dogs at the half-way mark (in a real race you cannot substitute dogs). His team is Lester, Waylon, Viper, Chipper, Dutch, Sandy, Pepe, Driver will be replaced with Woody, Rambler with Chena, Daisy with Violet, Spark with Commando and Tinder with Amber.
