TOMORROW!!!! – Carbon Hill Race Day & Cadence Cycle Twister

Hello Everybody,

We are happy to announce that we will go ahead and have a fun-filled
“Carbon Hill Race Day” & Cadence Cycle Twister” tomorrow, Sunday, Jan 13th.

30 miles: Alligator Lake Trail Loop (more like 35 miles)

10 miles: “Keep Right” – Loop on the Mary Lake trail (this trail has more snow and is safer for
skijoring than the McConnell Lake loop)

Rec Class: maximum length will be 6 miles, but it could also be shorter depending on what trail we exactly going to use. Loop will be announced tomorrow. We are looking at 2 different options right now.

Kids Dash: right at the Community Hall

For more information about registration, start times and entry fees please click here.

PLEASE READ!!!
Since we are experiencing less snow coverage than in the past, we would like to make sure everyone helps to make this a safe event:

  • If you are less experienced or this is your first race, please participate with a smaller team than the maximum number allowed. (reduce dog power!)
  • If it can be challenging for you to control your team… reduce power! Hence run a smaller team or/and carry some weight in your sled.
  • Since one cannot rely on a snow hook on the first miles of the Alligator Lake trail (all the way to the Al Pope Rd), we ask everyone to  have a snub line (safety/tie-off rope) on their sleds in order to be able to secure the team to a tree if necessary!
  • Children and Youth must wear a helmet!

The Organizers of The Carbon Hill Race Day would like to give a special “Thank you” to our main sponsors for this event:

  • Duffy’s Pets and Tanzilla Harness Supply
  • Impact Well Drilling
  • Icy Waters Ltd

UPDATE: Carbon Hill Race Day & Cadence Cycle Twister

Hello Dog Lovers,
We would like to inform you that there will be a race this weekend, Sunday, January 13th.

1) We will for sure hold the Cadence Cycle Twister Race, since conditions are good for a 10 mile course and a Recreation Class loop.

2) Due to lower snow we are still looking into options for the 30-Mile Carbon Hill course. And now cold temperatures have kept us from checking on trail  conditions on the 30-mile loops.

Stay tuned! and keep your fingers crossed, that we can confirm a 30-mile course closer to race day!

Postponed until further notice! – Cadence Cycle Twister Race

Hello Snow Dancers,
Apparently no one has danced naked yet!
Unfortunately the DPSAY board had to make the decision to postpone this event until further notice. We are as frustrated as everyone else, who wants to play in the snow. We do not find the conditions save enough to hold a competitive and fun event. We will wait for good snow conditions, and hopefully that will happen soon.
So stay tuned!

We are planning on something special though, December 22nd. Details hopefully tomorrow!
