I hope this message finds you all feeling rested and relaxed after a great weekend of Dryland sled dog racing I want to thank you all for coming out to a very successful Ethan Howard Memorial rig race benefiting the veterans of Liberty house in Manchester. For every dollar raised for Liberty house translates to $20 at the food bank which means the $415 we raised turns into $8,300 at the food bank we are very happy and proud to do this for the men that have given up so much for us. We also collected lots of blankets non-perishable food items Sox and other daily essentials for our vets. I would like to thank Manchester Water Works and John O'Neill the Forester for helping us get this race on if it weren't for them we wouldn't have a place to race. I'd also like to thank Tom DiMaggio for Always setting up a great Trail and Sandy DiMaggio for letting us use your car as a time in car, last minute because that is definitely one thing I forgot to get. Thanks to Dawn Roberts and Nova Clifford for coming out and helping me and Tom set up Trail on a very very windy and cold Friday. I also want to than Anita Wischinski,Rainer Wischinski Ron stortz Nancy stortz, and Heidi Stortz for great job with feeding everyone even when the grills froze ! Ron's chili Heidi and Nancy bread and cookies and Anita's chocolate marzipan cake were to die for . I'd also like to thank Ingo for doing a great job timing (not an easy job), and Gretchen Karlson for being an awesome chief judge and Kelly McGrath for making sure all our bills are paid and Laura Hayes for registering everyone she has a tough job I want to take the time to welcome our new vice president Mike Green and our second vice president Rachel colbath and thank you for for stepping into a tough job and also want to welcome Gretchen Karlson and Doug Butler to the board of directors.
