There are a number of different events on this week in Whitehorse so if you are here in town, drop by to one or two and maybe we’ll see you there!
All week mushers will be crossing the finish line up at Takhiki Hot Springs (the finish line was moved on Monday evening due to the rapidly changing river conditions into town). The tracker has been updated to show the miles left to the new finish line so you can keep an eye on that to estimate arrival times.
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings is the World Premiere Screening of Red Letter Films’ documentary series Mushers: Conquering the Yukon Quest. See the flyer and media release (below) for more details. Allen, Hugh, Brent and Matt will be there taking part in a Q&A following the screenings.
All through the week are various presentations and films at “QuestFest” at the Frank Slims Building in Shipyards Park (by the finish line). Friday evening is the “Meet the Mushers” evening at the Mount MacIntyre Recreation Centre starting at 6.30pm. Come along and get your Quest poster or T-shirt signed and get a picture with your favorite mushers!
Saturday night is the Finisher’s Banquet at the Yukon Convention Centre. We’ll hear from each finishing musher and we are bound to hear some great stories from the trail!
See you there!
