SHCC S/C Ontario 3-4 dog championships

Well, the bad news is the race on Jan.30/31,2010 will not happen. The good news is that I just spoke with the Events co-ordinator from Kortright and a new date for this year's race is set for February 27/28,2010.
I emailed everyone and received 15 emails infavour of the new date and one undecided.
I spoke with Nutro Products and they said "lets get it on".
I wanted to feel comfortable myself with the date with Apsley being on the same date but Apsley is an open event. This would be the first year that the Kortright/Nutro Products/SHCC had the titles to present which is very good for the club and siberian husky racing. The Marshall is good for that weekend.I have to check with the timers and I'll see if Sam is available.
The SHCC 3-4 dog Championships for S/C Ontario are up for grabs.
I may have lost my chicken wing people but I have a month to work on them.
I also have a month to get some snow on this wet muddy trail.

Rides for spectators by windrift kennel also confirmed.

Thanks for all the support. It makes me proud to run Siberian's.

Hackers- Vultures

I have had a few comments on my blog from people trying to sell things that were really not related to me or my blog. I am sorry for that but I am even more sorry that while trying to erase these comments I deleted my last post. It had to do with the crappy weather and the fact that I might have to cancel the Kortright race for this year. I am still hanging on to the date and I will make the call on Wednesday this week. I am planning on having the event on another weekend this year but as you know I am waiting for racer committment before approaching the Kortright Centre and Nutro Products. I will let you know how that goes soon- most likely on Wednesday.

For you people who feel they have to leave comments on other peoples blogs, why don't you throw some money towards my race and I will put posts up about your product, if not get lost.

Last good run at the luge

Well we managed to have a good time even if our hill was melting after each run.
If we don't get anymore snow it might be the best run we have all winter.
At least Matthew and Natalie enjoyed the worst winter in history. If I keep bugging mother nature she just might dump on us before Jan.30/31,2010.
I have had a request to be a third or a fourth in a major curling tournement Jan.30 so if mother nature can't provide a proper winter outside I will have to move indoors to enjoy this winter.

A Few Hot Days for January

Well, the next 3 or 4 days are looking really bad weather wise. It's going up above zero degrees and maybe some rain in there. The sun is out right now and that isn't helping things at all.
We can only hope that after this heat wave is over some real cold stuff comes flying in for the next couple of weeks and dumps some serious snow. I'll keep you up to date as we get closer to the Kortright race. For now here is a couple shots of my kid's luge hill slowly melting to the ground. I'll add some pictures of them in action when they get home but it was to dark last night for any.
Good luck to our Southern/Central Ontario racers going to Kalkaska, Michigan at the Kalkaska Winterfest and our friends that are racing in Daaquam,Quebec at the Canada International Championships. You will do us proud as usual.

Kortright Race Jan.30/31, 2010.

A couple of Walter Grohman's Copper Bullets waiting to go or waiting for their kennel mates to return. (These shots are from last years race 2009).

2010 and we're just sitting around waiting for more snow. A little bit since New Years day but still could use a lot more. Happy New Years Everyone (2010 starts for me on Feb.01,2010).

*10cm of snow packed down turns into 1 cm of packed trail. It would be nice to have 10 cm of packed trail so you do the math. Not looking good right now.............

I'll keep you informed as we get closer. I still have time but I'd rather have it sooner than later.
