IPSSSDR Expanded

IPSSSDR_Doggies

The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race is expanding its 2013 route to include Montana, Idaho and Utah along with its Wyoming venue.  Race Director Frank Teasley explains the move comes in an effort to challenge participants with some new terrain.  He says many of the sled dog races across the country and around the world set their courses, and within four, five or six years, the competitors to figure it out and can virtually write a manual about how to successfully run the race.   Teasley says the beauty of the stage stop format is that it can be changed repeatedly – not to challenge any particular musher, but to keep all those involved in the race sharp from the beginning to the end of the race.  Teasley assures the course will again begin in Jackson with the usual crowd-friendly race start, but will proceed from there to West Yellowstone and Island Park before returning to the Wyoming venues.  The final leg near Evanston swings for several miles through Utah before returning to Evanston for the conclusion of the race.  Meanwhile, he says, the stop in Park City, Utah has been eliminated.  He says the race encountered some challenges last year with a lack of snow, and even though the hosts in Park City did a great job with hauling it in, it was decided that a 60-mile legitimate run to conclude the race was a better finish than an eight-mile show.  Now in its 18th year, the 2013 IPSSSDR is slated for January 25th through February 2nd.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
