First Race of 2015

Bernie reported from the Jim Lobdell Memorial Sled Dog Races in Clarendon, PA, held January 17 and 18.

Our Chesapeake Siberian Sled Racing team just got back from a fantastic and fun filled race weekend in Western PA with our dogs, 33 Siberian Huskies, including our mascot and Public Relations Coordinator – “Blizzard”.
After all the races were over, awards given, we wanted to take a group picture of each of our mushers and their lead dog(s).
I shot one of the way we WANT you to see it,…
Then I snuck the second shot in, when they were NOT paying attention (that happens occasionally in our Group)…as a perfect example of the REALITY in this wonderful group of friends and our dogs.
PS, and for Jill, this was her very first sled dog race ever, she made it around the entire course, (5 miles, with a 4 dog team) uneventfully, BOTH days, and ultimately placed 5th out of 11 teams entered in her class! I’m SO proud of her, considering…she did not have *real* lead dogs!
Left to right: Storm Simms (Jill) with “Luna”, Cassandra Florian with “Lily”, Joseph Fitzgerald with “Holly”, Ron Gagne and Terri Rendon with Hiro and Halley.
