The Kobuk 440 race begins Thursday April 6, 2017 on the ice in front of the post office at 12:30 p.m. We have top mushers coming to race such as Dallas Seavey and Nick Petit with a total of 19 racers this year. The Kobuk 440 Board members are selling raffle tickets as well to earn money for next year’s race so they can call me Margaret Hansen at 907-947-9905 or Lew Pagel at 412-1785 to find out what the prizes are and to buy a ticket. The drawing will be held at the banquet on April 10th.
We are also requesting volunteers to bake something for the banquet. The board has budgeted to buy all the ingredients you will need for whatever you want to make for the banquet on April 10th at 6 p.m. at the KHMS cafeteria. We will have a celebration at no cost for all the volunteers and mushers at the Lions Club after the banquet on April 10th.
The Kobuk 440 board would really appreciate your help to make this year’s race the best it can be and a banquet everyone can enjoy. Come out and support the mushers by showing up to the race start!
Thank you for your time and assistance.
