IPSSSDR Promises Keen Competition

IPSSSDR 01-30

The 19th annual International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race begins from the Jackson town square one week from today with 17 competitors registered to participate.  That’s down from 21 racers last year, but Race Director Dan Carter says the competition will be very keen. Carter points in particular to Defending Champion Aaron Peck who will be returning to defend his title while Previous Four-time Champion Bud Streeper will be back to attempt to regain his title from Peck. The race course once again takes the mushers through over a dozen communities in Western Wyoming, Southwestern Montana, Eastern Idaho and the northeast corner of Utah.  It kicks off with a vet check next Friday and ceremonial start at 6:30 pm. Carter promises, “We will have live music from our traveling band, Screen Door Porch; we will have a food tent with Dutch oven barbecue; we will have the Jumbo-tron set up again…to broadcast video and the live start; and then after the race finishes at Snow King, we’re going to have a torch-light parade and fireworks display, and there’ll be an open party.” Carter says the public will be able to meet the competitors personally at that party.  Race Sponsor Pedigree will once again provide food for the animal shelters in each of the communities through which the race passes.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
