09/13/2008: "Iditarod Racer Discussion"
Laura Daugereau, Washington's first woman to run in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, is coming to San Juan Island for an encore presentation about her rookie run this year.
She will be speaking at the San Juan Island Library on Saturday, September 13 at 7:00pm.
There will be a slide show, education about dog care, equipment used, the sport of mushing, the heart of her athletes and the historic 1,049 mile Iditarod Trail.
This amazing race stretches from Anchorage, through central Alaska, along the western Bering Sea Coast, and finishes under the great burled arch in downtown Nome. It is wrought with awesome beauty and grave dangers, and it forever changes those few who have finished it.
This fascinating presentation on "The Last Great Race" is FREE and open to all ages. This is a rare opportunity to meet a seasoned musher, and see first hand her love for her dogs and their love for her. Please come meet Washington's Iditarod representative from Port Gamble, and congratulate her on this amazing accomplishment. Don't miss the chance to be inspired !
