Annual Fall Warm Up Weekend
FALL WARM - UP WEEKEND
September 1 - 4, 2006
Location: NorthWapiti Kennels, Perryvale, Alberta, Canada
(approx. 1 hour north of Edmonton)
Join us for a weekend of running dogs and socializing with fellow
mushers. We will be opening our kennel and trails to all area
mushers. Come for a 1/2 day, all day, 2 days or all weekend. There
is plenty of camping and miles and miles of beautiful trails in the
Tawatinaw River Valley. You will have the option of joining us for a potluck
meal each day or taking care of your own meals, but I can't imagine
wanting to pass up the fantastic food that shows up at the potlucks each year!
This is not a training camp or any type of instructional weekend,
but we will be happy to help people with any problems they are
having with gear or getting the dogs hooked up for fall training. If
interest is high we may run some open forum question/answer
sessions and informal seminars in the afternoon. We may even come up
with a guest speaker - details TBA.
Back by popular demand will be Mark's 2nd Annual Fall Warm Up
Weekend Scavenger Hunt.
And with enough interest we will hold a Horseshoe Tournament.
Any number of dogs are welcome, whether it be 2 or 12. You will need
to bring your own quad, carts, or training rigs and everything you
need to hook up, secure and care for your own dogs (pickets lines,
etc). If you just have one dog - come anyway - the trails are
fabulous for a day or weekend hike. Or bring your bike and try out bike-joring. The blueberry crop this year is once again showing signs of being great -
if for no other reason come out to pick blueberries! There will be more here then the
bears, ourselves and our neighbours could possibly pick!
For further information - or to book a spot (there are no
restrictions as for number teams, nor any fees - but we need to know
how many are coming and what size teams/campers you are bringing, so
we can make room) please call ((780) 698 0006) or email (email@example.com)
Please note - this is the
ONLY weekend we will be available to train with others. (After the
long weekend, our Iditarod training schedule kicks into high
Hoping to see lots of you in September!
