Good morning from Blackrock Teton County, Stage 1

Hallo Pedigree Stage Stop Race Fans,

Today is game time. At 9 a.m. 18 Teams will be led down the trail by Bib no 1, Randy deKuiper. Teams will start in 3 minute intervals. The last team out is Rachel Courtney from Manitoba at 9.51 a.m. The maximum number of dogs a team can run is 10 dogs, out of a pool of 14 dogs.

Lots of fresh snow here this morning, about 8 inches and temperatures of 20F.

Parking Mushers is a tetris game in these tight parking lots. A few teams had camped out here overnight like Bruce Magnusson, who’s team is run by Laura Bontager.

As you can see, Starlink has made it to the Pedigree Stage Stop Race. That will make life much easier when it comes to uploading.

Looking forward to an exiting race day.
