The event is taking place on Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 11 am to 3 pm at the Pleasant Valley Community Center (behind the Pleasant Valley Store, milepost 23). You can get your pet or whole kennel vaccinated for the low cost of $10 per dog or $15 per cat (prices subject to change based on the price of the vaccine).

September 2017 membership & volunteer meeting – the season is starting again!

The 2017/2018 season is soon starting again, and there is a lot of business to take care of. We will therefore hold our first meeting of the season on Wednesday, September 6, 2017, at 7 pm at the Two Rivers Lodge.

Solstice canceled, Burger Run is back!

With the unfortunate cancellation of the 2016 Solstice 50 we am happy to announce the return of the Burger Run, which will take place on Feb 25th, 2017.

The race will start at Pleasant Valley Store and Finish at Angel Creek Lodge.
For an Entry Fee of $30 (plus current membership), each musher and one handler per sign-up will get a burger at Angel Creek Lodge at the end of the race.
Sign-ups will be the morning of the race.  Up to 12 dogs in a team. Also open to ski-Jor teams!

There is no purse for this race…. but hopefully we will have prizes 🙂
More details coming as we get closer.

(Also, remember our big event, the Two Rivers 200/100 races in January 2017)
