The BAARC supported the Mid-MN Sled Dog Race on Saturday, February 10th, 2018, with fifteen radio operators. Net Control was located at the Village Inn in Outing, MN. We had nineteen Mushers and Sled Dog Teams; nine – six dog teams left Outing, MN at 11 AM, followed by ten – eight dog teams at 12 noon. We had radio operators at ten different checkpoints keeping track of the Mushers and their dog teams. Thank you to Bob K6RCO, Mitch ADØHJ, Alan AAØAS, Carlos NØOHX, Doug KØDWB, Ron KØGOP, John WØWY, Terry KIØFW, Leon KEØAFY, Becky KDØHBH, Jeff KDØHBI, Roger WRØG, Judi KØJLL, Shirley KØDCW and Al WØRC. Also, thank you to Steve NØCRM and Ron KØGOP for doing the maps and the spreadsheets. We had cool but nice weather and didn’t have any major mishaps or lost mushers.
Thank You also to the Crow Wing Co. Sheriff’s office for letting BAARC use their communications trailer.
