Sledding

THE club hosts approximately 5 races a year in various locations throughout winter. Training days are organised prior to the season beginning in order to learn and be prepared for the fun part.

HERE in Victoria we get very little snow, and access to the snow fields (mostly in National Parks) is restricted. The majority of our competitions are based on dirt tracks using wheeled gigs and scooters. The scooter is standard equipment for most of the 1-dog and 2-dog classes, larger classes use several types of gigs and races can consist of some drivers using up to 10 dogs at a time.

RACES are advertised on our site, members emailed and they are open to the public to come and view and be inspired.

After many many months Social Sledding is back!

This has been a few months in the making but finally the applications are in and all permits approved.  This year will be much the same as last year being members only and entries online through Iron Paws (thanks to Courney Persson).

COVID regulations have changed massively since all the application processes started and now it is just a spray of Glen 20 in the loos and please use the Hand Sanitiser. Of course, if you are feeling at all unwell we would ask that you don’t attend.
