After several months of discussions, drafts, and revisions, CSDC has finalized a new logo that represents our deep ties to the great state of Oregon, our devotion to Mt. Hood, and our versatile membership inclusive of both skijorers and sledders. We'll be printing and embroidering this new logo on some new outdoor gear very soon. Check back for ordering information! It's an exciting season for us here at CSDC!
*Extra special thanks to member Dale Leix for his many volunteer hours in creating and editing this new design*
CSDC Club Members and friends came together on October 19th to help clear the trails at Frog Lake to ensure the groomer has enough room to get through once the snow flies.
Dear Mother Nature: We are READY!
Pups Nika and Bernie direct CSDC members Thad and Eric on proper chainsaw use at our annual trail clearing and campout.
We are busy preparing for our Fall Pull Training Clinic on Saturday, September 28th. Registration is now closed for this event, but we'll be offering another clinic in April 2014. Send us a note through our contact link to get on the interest list! In the meantime, check out the sidebar on the right, highlighting our October Frog Lake Campout and Trail Clean Up party! Save the date!
The 2013 Musher of the Year Award went to Thad McCracken who ran a near perfect season. Thad's availability to assist and advise other mushers, as well as the top notch care he provides his dogs also contributed to him winning this award.
The 2013 Most Improved Team and Driver Award went to Geneva Lyon. Geneva completed an extensive race circuit this season, and took her team from a "happy go lucky" group of dogs to a "happy go fast" team. Geneva also is this year's PNC Skijor champion.
The 2013 Novice Musher of the Year Award went to Laura Maffei. Laura carefully started her skijoring season with one malamute and ended it competing in several races with both of her dogs.
The Bob and Lee Hills Sportsmanship Award is presented to a musher that has demonstrated above and beyond good sportsmanship, both on and off the trail, and is presented in honor of founding members of the CSDC, Bob and Lee Hills. This year's award was presented to both Dan Silvertree and Tim Curley.
The 2013 Member of the Year was awarded to Sharon Carpenter. Sharon was a major contributor in the CSDC's successful return to racing at Diamond Lake Resorts.
By all accounts the CSCD Return to Diamond Lake race was a huge success! We had a great turnout, picture perfect weather and groomed trails and the Diamond Lake Resort was a top notch host!
Big thanks to the race organizers for a stellar effort, and to all the race day volunteers that stepped up to make it such a fun weekend. Click the download link below for race results.
Hope to see you next weekend at the Bachelor Butte Dog Derby and then next year for CSCD's Frog Lake and Diamond Lake races!
