A big crowd turned out this evening to the Mount McIntyre Rec Centre to meet the 2017 Yukon Quest mushers. The line for signatures and photos was long and didn’t abate all evening! Everything from posters to hats to street banners to calendars were signed and there were selfies galore.
It’s a fun event for public and fans to get up close with their favourite mushers and to meet new favourites! I met several people who were there for the first time and who appreciated the time the mushers took to answer their questions and talk about their dogs.
Thanks to the staff and team of volunteers for staging the event; for manning the merchandise tables and replenishing the refreshments table.
A selection of the merchandise available for sale – check online for more info on how to order
There will also be a post-race Meet the Mushers event in Fairbanks on Thursday, February 16th.
