Default Dog Sled Derby this year?

Are there any plans to have the Dog Sled Derby this year in Laconia ?

Not sue who sponsors this in the past, but last years event was short of fantantic ! Exciting and wonderful family entertainment, and it's FREE !

Of course this all depends whether Mother Nature co-operates and drops a ton of snow between now and mid February.

Thanks for your feedback.

Default Postponed

Just read on WMUR that it is being postponed until the weekend of 24-26

LACONIA, N.H. -- An annual sled dog race in New Hampshire has been postponed as organizers wait for more snow. The 2012 Laconia Sled Dog Derby had been scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 10-12. The Citizen reported the Lakes Region Sled Dog Club, which manages the derby, decided Wednesday to move the event to Feb. 24-26. Jim Lyman, the club's trail boss, said ideally, at least 10 inches of good snow is needed on the trails to set up a competitive race course. He said the club will re-examine its decision in a couple of weeks. This year marks the 83rd running of the derby.
