I hope that the March dates will work out. This is a great event. If you want to find out more information check out their website: http://www.lrsdc.org/

I can't believe that I am saying this, but I hope that they have plenty of snow in March for the races.

Default Sled Dog Derby...

Went to the Laconia Dog Sled Derby yesterday (Feb 12), and had a fantastic time. Not sure who was more excited, the people or the dogs !

Went early, around 8am, and was able to see the 6 dog sled race, what excitement ! Positiioned my self on the Parade Rd race route, and was able to take some fabulous pics and movies. You can also go tot he 'Start/End' line and see the dogs, sleds and Race drivers up close. Everyone was very friendly, and willing to talk about their sport.

If you want to have a fun time, take yourself and family down and watch the races today (Sun 2/13).

Still some races races to run today (Sun 2/13):
Junior Race - 12:00pm
Open Class - 1:00pm
Beleive they may be last raace around 2-3pm ? Check schedule.

Have a great time, get outdoors and enjoy yourself ! Winter is almost over !

The boss, AKA, "she who must be obeyed" found a great spot and got herself down to "dog eye" level. The long lens helped with the shots that look like she is about to get run over.

It was alot of fun, and I canl tell you, they were moving fast! We saw a 7 or 8 teams come thru, and she has many more pics that I didn't post.
