Trail Conditions: (for the visitor) Click on [pic] for photo.

For those of you who haven't been on our club trails, let me explain a bit. We are a coastal village, which translates as windswept [pic]. There are no trees here and therefore we get a lot of snow drifting and sastrugi [pic]. This makes for slow trails, or icy where the snow has blown away. Of course, there may be some of you, used to groomed trails through the forest, who would hesitate to use the word 'trails' to describe our race courses. The race times may reflect these conditions.

The Council Race was scheduled for March 26th however due to high winds and low temperatures in the Topkok area the race was postponed till April 3rd. The race began at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning with clear skies, a little breezy and cold weather. The area between Safety Bridge and Johnson's Camp had winds gusting to 40 mph. It was breezy and cold the whole trip. The 4 teams got to Topkok between 6 & 7 p.m. where Pat Hahn and his daughter Anna spent the night. Pat had a ham radio for communications between Nome, Topkok and Council. There were several broken snowmachines along the way on the rough trail between Topkok and the Klokerbok (Kugiblock) A-Frame. The high winds had created lots of concrete drifts with soft snow in between. In Council, Dan Stang, his sons Daniel and Louie invited the mushers and support group to park the teams by their house. There was water, musk ox stew, and a nice warm place to rest for everyone. In addition Dan communicated with Pat Hahn at Topkok to coordinate the pick up of Nicolai Borisenko who had a snowmachine mechanical and was stranded on the trail. Daniel and Louie Stang went out in the early morning hours to pick up Nicolai and give him a ride to Topkok Shelter Cabin. After about 6 hours rest in Council the dog teams began the trip back to Nome somewhat reluctantly leaving the comfortable cabin on the Niukluk River. The full moon and the dog's enthusiasm made it a good run back to Topkok and everyone got back to Nome between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The Nome Kennel Club would like to thank everyone who helped with the race. We are planning a potluck at the VFW on May 15th - time and date to be confirmed soon. We especially appreciate the Stangs opening up their house, Pat Hahn coming out to Topkok, Conner Thomas, Bryan Imus as checkers and dog handlers, and also everyone who came to the start to help or watch.

April 10, 2004- 30 mile, 8 dogs

The trail went from the race start at 8 a.m., up Gold Hill over to Icy View, up the Osborne Road, over the hill at Triple Creek, along the ditch to pallet man's house, along the road to Dexter, up the hill to the first ditch and down to Ray's cabin on the Kougarok Road, back up the 2nd ditch line and all the way along that ditch till the old dredge just below the old water trestle in the headwaters of Dexter Creek. Then the trail went down Dexter Creek connecting with our outbound trail and back the same way. The trail was soft and bottomless in places due to the early spring thaw with temperatures from 30 - 40 degrees for the previous 5 days. In the higher elevations the trail was nicer and the dogs were able to run without falling through the trail. There were stretches of trail that were entirely tundra in the lower areas. A small group of reindeer were in the Triple Creek area.

April 11, 2004 Easter Sunday - 30 mile, 8 dogs

The trail was the same as the previous day except we reversed our directions starting at Dexter Creek, started out in 1 minute intervals instead of 2 minute intervals and we started at 7 a.m. due to the fact it was Easter. All the teams stayed together until the half-way point where they spread out a little bit. The trail was soft and the weather was in the high 30's. We started at 7 a.m. in a freezing drizzle. This was the last race of the season.
