We’ve had a lot of fun today!
Today began with the Musher’s Meeting at Iditarod Race Headquarters and wrapped up in downtown with the Mushers’ Banquet at the Dena’ina Center. Before we headed out for the big event, we got together at the Inlet Tower to meet up with our IditaRider Virgil and to get ‘dressed’ for the event!
Virgil is having a grand ‘ol time so far, and is becoming quite the celebrity himself! We sure think it’s fun and are really enjoying watching HIM sign some autographs!
A HUGE thank you again to all of you that helped us secure this IditaRider spot for Virgil! So far, he’s enjoying the Ride!
Jeff was the 33rd musher to head to the stage at the Mushers’ Banquet this evening and drew Bib #18 for the start of Iditarod 41!
Don’t forget that there will be a Musher Meet & Greet at the Inlet Tower tomorrow! That happens from 4pm to 6pm, and then we will make our way downtown to the Snow City Cafe for the Born to Run/Athletes of the Iditarod Photography Exhibit! Pick up your copy of this beautiful book and have it autographed – Jeff will be joining other mushers as well as Albert Lewis himself. This event goes until 8:00pm.
The dogs are headed down tomorrow… so keep an eye out for that Team line-up!
The HH Crew + Virgil!
