2000 Season Race Results

1998 Season Race Results

Trail Conditions: (for the visitor) Click on [pic] for photo.

For those of you who haven't been on our club trails, let me explain a bit. We are a coastal village, which translates as windswept [pic]. There are no trees here and therefore we get a lot of snow drifting and sastrugi [pic]. This makes for slow trails, or icy where the snow has blown away. Of course, there may be some of you, used to groomed trails through the forest, who would hesitate to use the word 'trails' to describe our race courses. The race times may reflect these conditions.

Congratulations to the hardy dog drivers who completed this race with healthy, happy dog teams.

*Special Thanks to all of the Nome Area Ham Radio operators who provided communications for those stranded at Topkok, Nome Search and Rescue, Nome Volunteer Fire Department, Tom Busch, Pat Hahn, Wilson Bourdon, Dan Harrelson, Steve Battershaw, Chris Nassuk, Brian Timbers, Conner Thomas, Hageland Aviation, Jim Wilson, Roger Thompson, Art Peters, Terry Boyle. A big thanks to the local radio stations for their updates and support. Thanks again to all of those who supported and helped those who were stranded at the Topkok cabin this weekend.

Note: This is the longest Council Race in history due to the high winds in the Topkok - Solomon area. It was fortunate that caribou hunters were stranded along with dog mushers as the caribou was the main menu. These were items that people said they were glad to have or would have been glad to have had - chainsaw, multi-fuel stove, good book and more spices for the caribou meat! Steve Battershaw was a big help making water for the group. Art Peters has donated plywood to build some more bunks.
