Snowshoe race goes to the dogs

Dorothy J. Howard

Dear Editor,

Another snowshoe race come, and another snowshoe race gone … to the dogs. Yes, the 11th annual Day of Infamy Snowshoe Race was held on Dec. 8 at Sunlight Mountain Resort. The participation of over 100 racers is a very good sign that people like this race. We raised over $1,000 that will go to the animal shelters of Garfield County.

The race would not be the success it is without the contributions of my very generous sponsors. Summit Canyon Mountaineering and Tubbs Snowshoes are very supportive of this race, and I want to thank Steve Davis and Stevie Sidener for their generous contributions. Thanks also to Sunlight Mountain for their help with last minute race day organizing.

Also I would like to thank the other prize sponsors for donating prizes and supplies for the after-race party, and a big thanks to my friend and neighbor, Peggy Utesch, for her wonderful work on the poster.

Also we had some wonderful volunteers who were very handy to have before race day and during the race, Judy and Joe O’Donnell, Laurie Soliday, and Howard Raley. Also thanks to my wonderful husband who works diligently by my side before, during and after race day.

And a big thank-you to all the racers who came out for a stroll through Babbish Gulch to support the animal shelters.

Thank you,

Dorothy J. Howard
