Hello DPSAY members,
The September Hot Hound Race will take place on Sept 16, 2012 at Hans & Susie’s place (Gatt Kennels) at Golden Horn. Registration will be at 4 pm, race starts at 5 pm.
As every year the famous race at Gatt Kennels will feature a 1 mile/1 dog race with a mass start on the airstrip as well as a 1 mile/1 dog canicross event and a 2 mile/2 dog race. Merchandise prizes are sponsored by Yukon Brewing, Aurora booties and Coast Mountain Sports.
In addition DPSAY will host the First Mate Freight Pull organized by Jonathan Lucas. There are three categories defined by dog weight: 0-60lb , 61-99lb, 100lb+. Get your dogs trained and win some bags of fine First Mate Extreme dog food!
Directions to the race start from Whitehorse: Drive south on the Alaska Highway. Drive past the Carcross Cut-off (still on the Alaska Highway), direction Watson Lake. Approx. 4 km after the cut-off turn left onto Gentian Lane (watch out for DPSAY signs). Drive on Gentian Lane for approx. 2 km and turn right onto Hans & Susie’s driveway. From there on follow the DPSAY trail markers. They will lead you down to the Airstrip where we will have the registration and start line for all races set up.
Please bring some food for a BBQ/Potluck at Hans & Susie’s place after the race!
See you on the 16th!
