Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race Display in Ketchikan


March 04, 2006

Ketchikan, Alaska - "In celebration of the 2006 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, the Discovery Center Staff has put together a small interpretive display about the trail and the race," said Brian Short Information Receptionist at the Southeast Alaska Discovery Center. "In addition to providing some interesting facts about the trail and race, we will also be providing updated standings each day until the winner is decided," he said.

In case you didn't know, the ceremonial start of the race was today (Saturday, March 4th), and the official start of the 2006 Iditarod will be tomorrow in Willow, AK. A winner should be
determined anywhere from 9-10 days later.

Short said, "So if you're interested, please stop on by, and let others know. This is a work in progress, so any input is appreciated. We hope to have some more material in the future."
