Antigo sled dog races postponed

ANTIGO, WI  (WSAU)  -  After all the snow we had two weeks ago, you probably think there’d be enough for the Antigo sled dog races. But you’d be wrong.

Today, the Antigo-Langlade County Chamber of Commerce postponed the sled-dog event from the weekend of January 12th-and-13th to sometime in February. The region had in the neighborhood of a foot-of-snow just 14 days ago. But Chamber director Deena Grabowski says there’s not enough snow on some parts of the sledding course – mainly in open fields where strong winds have left bare patches in some spots. Grabowski said the sled dog races could be held in mid-to-late February. It would depend on the weather – and she notes that a snowmobile race is already scheduled for February 23rd-and-24th in Antigo.

The sled dog races need to get in sometime, though. That’s because they’re a qualifying event for this year’s world championships in North Pole Alaska, sponsored by the International Federation of Sled-Dog Sports.
