I would like to invite you to run for a Chugiak Dog Mushers Association (CDMA) Board position for the 2018-19 year. Seven board positions will be expiring March 31, 2018. CDMA needs dedicated board members to do the varied business needed to keep Mushing in the forefront of the Eagle River-Chugiak Community and to maintain our trail system. Please contact Val Jokela either via email email@example.com or give her a call at 907-748-5762, so we can place your name on the ballot.
Nominations are also open for the Humanitarian Award. You can find the criteria on the CDMA website. Last year, Kris Rasey was the recipient of this prestigious award. Please forward your nominations to Val.
Nominations for board members and the humanitarian award can also be made online!
Looking forward to hearing from you.

A mama bear with two cubs was sighted on the two-mile trail over Labor Day weekend. They have not been seen since. Be sure to carry bear deterrents and exercise due caution during your fall training runs.
