2011 Kortright/SHCC S/C Ontario 3-4 Dog championship




Well, great weather and a great race at The Kortright Centre.
The trail managed to hang in there and everyone had a ball.
There was over 1300 spectators that enjoyed the race over the two days.
Rides provided by windrift kennels all weekend(more on them on my link).
The Kortright Centre provided an excellent lunch both days for mushers and handlers in the Deer room. A nice time to talk with each other and spend some time with old friends.
Nutro Products provided another excellent startline that was loud and clear on the Sunday night news on CTV if you had a chance to see it. They profiled many of our racers and a real nice interview with Walter Grohman explaining actually how much siberian racers love their dogs...it's true Mary!!
Everyone has emailed me,called me and facebooked me with great reviews. I spoke with Lynn via email Saturday evening and I was happy to report that Barry had just bruised his ribs and will have to take it easy for a little while.
I was so disappointed that I was so ill for my event but I had to go home as soon as I could. Thanks to Peter F. for Marshalling-a great job once again. Daryl S. for timing. Terry Baird and everyone else helped racers get to the line.
It was also great to see Jim Cunningham at the race who has been to many races across the country and emailed me what a great race I have here!!!
Thanks to Linda and her crew for totally taking over and handing out prizes Sunday.
A personal thank you to Bob and Kathy Kilbreath for keeping me racing through all my work. Especially Kathy on Sunday for making us look so good!!!!!8th to 3rd "thank god for a sick drivers"...
