The 8th Annual CopperDog 150/80 sled dog races are quickly approaching and we are preparing to host another successful race.
WHO: all volunteers, open event, please join us
WHAT: learn about working with dog teams and mushers
WHERE: Calumet High School (CLK: Multi-Purpose Room)
WHEN: Sunday, February 26, 1:00PM - 3:00PM
WHY: because its super fun!
Safety has always been our organizations top priority- for the dogs, for the mushers, for the community, and for our army of volunteers that it takes to put on this event.
Sunday, February 26th, we will once again host our All Volunteer Training session. CopperDog has heard a large amount feedback in the past from those mushers who have run our race; they tell us we are one of the few races that actually train our volunteers.
Please join us at the Calumet High School Sunday, February 26 from 1:00pm until 3:00pm, with official merchandise for purchase.
You will hear from many of the organizers of the race, be able to ask questions, and will get a chance to actually assist with the handling of a sled dog team with local musher Tom Bauer. This being one of the more physical jobs, we suggest you attend the training if you have never volunteered for this position. It’s a lot of fun but these dogs are strong!
In addition, crossing coordinators can pick up their crossing bags and snow fence at this training for the race the following weekend.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday! Thanks again to all our volunteers- we couldn’t do it without your hard work and dedication.
