Call for Support

Finally a politician with dog sense!
Twister and Hot Hound fans know MIKE SIMON as a volunteer on countless races. He's running for nomination to be the Liberal candidate in Lake Laberge riding.
The nomination meeting is at the Hootalinqua firehall
(Mile 4 Mayo Road, right hand side after Takhini Gas)
at 7 p.m. on this THURSDAY, JANUARY 24.

Please come out to show your support, even if you don't live in the riding. You don't need to be a party member and this is a chance to ask a future member of the territorial legislature about those pressing issues such as:
  • Can you make the City relax their 3-dog limit?
  • What's your position on animal protection?
  • Can we get the Dog Sled Track lease back?
  • or, anything else that's got a burr in your fur.
Hope to see you at 7 this Thursday at Hootalinqua. Regardless we'll be out on the trail again this Sunday!

Duffy's Pets race POSTPONED!

It doesn't often happen, but it really is predicted to be just too cold this Sunday. Blame the La Nina effect.

Very sensibly the Duffy's Pets and Tanzilla Harness Supply Race Day has been POSTPONED to
and becomes a most excellent warm up for that slightly less important YQ300!

See you all on the 30th! Keep warm.
