Iditarod Sign Up and Volunteer Picnic

Saturday June 25th was the first day to sign up for Iditarod 2017. Both Aliy and Allen turned in paperwork (Aliy actually turned in Allen's paperwork, as he was working on the Princess Cruises Train in Denali all day.) But, Aliy was in Wasilla to share the day with many Iditarod Volunteers as well as Mushers who showed up for the picnic.
Fifty-two mushers signed up to start the 2017 race. HERE is the list.

Iditarod Trail Headquarters, Wasilla, Alaska; Aliy turns in race paperwork.

Aliy and Dallas talk dogs; Mille, Aliy and Joar.

Martin, Aliy and Dr. Stu Nelson; Aliy and Mark Nordman.

Has Joar mentioned anything about how "Zesty" is doing? He hasn't updated his website. I check it periodically for a glimpse.
