With the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race over for another year, race officials have awarded the Old Stager Award to Stan and Cheri Rogers of Powell along with their two children, for their annual work on the sled dog race. The Old Stager Award honors a musher or an individual who has made a long-term commitment to the race. Stan and Cheri have been the official race timers for the past 13 years. Trace Organizer Frank Teasley says the Rogers role–often causing them to wait in inclement weather for the teams to cross the finish line in remote location for hours at a time—is considered essential to the race. A framed photograph by Jackson Photographer Chris Havener was presented to the Rogers as this year’s Old Stager Award.
