Pampa Race 2009

On December 5th and 6th we attended the Pampa Race in Helchteren (BE).
However during the first heat on Saturday a tragic event happened. We lost a musher :(
All our condolences to the family of Martie Van Den Broeck.
Despite this very sad news our dogs did a wonderful job running.
On Saturday 5 of our malamutes (Yutah, Yekona, Hailey, Yogi & Yortak) and Charko enjoyed a nice training of 19km along with Gwen. On Sunday they did a shorter training as the trail was very hard with lots of water but with more weight (Thanks Patrik!).
On Day 2 Gijs also enjoyed a nice run with Ethna, Akela, Max & Manila.
