Happy New Year!

It is already well into 2012 and we finally have some cold weather!  Many dog-powered enthusiasts were at the Carbon Hill race at Mt. Lorne yesterday braving the first cold snap.  Congratulations to all of the hardy participants and a HUGE thanks to the wonderful volunteers and organizers that continue to make that annual event a success.

We, of the Dog Powered Sports Asoociation, took some time to relax over the holidays, but have been busy as ever lately to get more Yukon Brewing Twisters and the River Runner coming your way.

River Runner registration is now open!!!

Please check out the various parts of this website to get your registration form and check out the updated rules.  Looking forward to this Rendezvous event on February 25th and 26th!  Check out our profile page for the first entrant in the dogsled class.

Also, we have a free Long Distance Skijor Workshop this coming Saturday, the 21st at 2pm, Mary Lake Subdivision.  It will be led by Gaetan Pierrard and is aimed at getting those interested in the sport ready for tackling either the 65 mile or 130 mile skijor classes in the River Runner.  One important piece of equipment – the pulka – will be talked about as well as a skate ski technique lesson, and much more!  Please contact Amelie at 335-5416 to register, or email dogpoweredsports@gmail.com.

Our next Yukon Brewing Twister local race event will be held on January 29th just south of Whitehorse, at Hans and Susie’s place.  Check back here for details.

Stay warm!
