June 30, 2004 Fall Warm-Up Weekend Invitation

4th Annual
September 3 - 6, 2004
Location: NorthWapiti Kennels, Perryvale, Alberta, Canada
(approx. 1 hour north of Edmonton)
Join us for a weekend of running dogs and socializing with fellow mushers. We will be opening our kennel and trails to all area mushers. Come for a 1/2 day, all day, 2 days or all weekend. There is plenty of camping and miles and miles of beautiful trails in the Tawatinaw River Valley. You will have the option of taking care of your own meals or joining us for a potluck meal each day.
This is not a training camp or any type of instructional weekend, but we will be happy to help people with any problems they are having with gear or getting the dogs hooked up for fall training. If interest in high we may run some open forum question and answer sessions in the afternoons. We are also inviting folks to bring along their excess, outdated, no longer wanted mushing gear for an informal swap meet.
Any number of dogs are welcome, whether it be 2 or 12. You will need to bring your own quad, carts, or training rigs and everything you need to hook up, secure and care for your own dogs (pickets lines, etc). If you just have one dog - come anyway - the trails are fabulous for a day or weekend hike. Or bring your bike and try out bike-joring. The blueberry crop this year is showing signs of being the best we have ever had - if for no other reason come out to pick blueberries! There will be more here then the bears, ourselves and our neighbors could possibly pick!
For further information - or to book a spot (there are no restrictions as for number teams, nor any fees - but we need to know how many are coming and what size teams/campers you are bringing, so we can make room) 
Please note - last year we had alot of last minute cancellations with folks wanting to reschedule for another weekend - this is the ONLY weekend we will be available to train with others. (After the long weekend, our Iditarod training schedule kicks into high gear!!)
Hoping to see lots of you in September!
