2022 All Volunteer Hands-On Training

WHO:       All Volunteers, Please Join Us!

WHAT:      Learn about working with mushers and sled-dogs

WHERE:   Calumet High School

WHEN:     Saturday, February 26, 11:00am - 1:00pm

WHY:        Having some fun and learn something!

Safety is one our biggest concerns race weekend and well-prepared volunteer base is one of our most important resources. Event planners put a lot of time and energy into planning a safe event, but ultimately its the volunteers in the field that hold the line keeping everyone safe.

To help ensure CopperDog volunteers are ready, the race organization provides an annual All Volunteer training session a week before the race at the CLK Schools in Calumet. The training session is interesting and fun with about 45 minutes of indoor training, covering numerous scenarios that may be encountered on the trail, and 45 minutes of training outdoors working with a musher and dog team.

We strongly encourage all volunteers and anyone from the general public who wants to learn the ins and outs of a musher's sled and the dog team that pulls it; wants to learn the do's and don'ts of working with sled-dogs; wants to learn about race safety and communication procedures; and wants to work hands-on with a couple of dog teams to gain experience to attend this volunteer training session.

Office CopperDog150 merchandise will be available for sale during the training
