Trail-Bingo-4-Rescue & BBQ!
Come have fun and celebrate one of our last official events of the 2020/21 mushing season! The events will take place on Saturday, March 6th, 2021. Trail-Bingo is a fun participation event where all teams are welcome (big or small, sled or skis). You will run the trails looking for specific items, or doing certain tasks which you fill in on your bingo card.
A BBQ lunch included after the events!
Event registration starts at 9.30 am, and then you are free to hit the trails with your bingo cards. Cards will be sent out digitally before the event. Lunch is included in your $15 event fee ($30 for families of two or more) and will consist of sausage on a bun with chips and a drink. Note: depending on municipal, provincial, and federal rules at the time the BBQ may be eliminated for safety reasons. After expenses, half the event fees will go to a cause to be determined and half to the club.
Note: Trails are open to all members during this event even if you are not participating.
How does the Trail-Bingo-4-Rescue event work?
Nothing seen in the parking lot counts for your bingo card – you must be on the trail!
You are welcome to spend as much time on the trails as you would like hunting these items. Feel free to take breaks and head back out. Please ensure your sheets are returned to the event coordinators no later than 11:30. Based on the top 5 completed cards we will draw for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and award badges.
Note to Skijorers: if you feel that there may be difficulty in passing the larger dog teams and would prefer a head start on the trails to prevent passing issues, please let us know and we will adjust the start-time to 9am for just the skijorers, with the sled teams starting no earlier than 9.30am – but please let us know ahead of time.
If not already completed for this season please send your proof of vaccinations to Cindy Merkley ahead of the event. Season memberships, weekend memberships, or associate memberships can be purchased here: https://mushlarose.ca/membership/
As always, this is a fun event, please be courteous and polite while on the trails, making sure to yell ‘trail’ if you come upon a stopped team and offer assistance should anyone need it. Please allow teams to hook in and hold their dogs to the side of the trail if needed. Should any situations arise while on the trail, please let the organizers know immediately.
Most importantly – BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN!
Organizer: James Erdelyi
