Kipp d'Amundsen Siberian Husky Team

2007/08 SUPPORT PROGRAM & PLANNED RACES




In order to support our kennel´s effort in competing in several mid distance races
in Sweden and Norway this season, we have composed the following


SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR OUR HUSKY TEAM


Getting ready for a race season 2007/08 means for us, besides training the dogs properly, feeding them the best possilbe way and caring for their health, also the need to buy lots of new equipment that we didn´t need to have in the past few seasons, when we didn´t race (and our equipment got old, out of shape or used up).

Some of it is in particular:

* Racing Mid/Long Distance Sled
* Second, heavier training sled
* Arctic outdoor clothing and boots for 2 mushers
* Well functioning trail cooker
* New sets of lines for 2 teams
* New harnesses
* New dog boxes so we can transport as many as 20 dogs
* Starting fees
* Accomodation at races
* Fuel for travelling to races
* Dog booties (see our 2007/08 Dog Bootie Program)
* Dog Coats
* Foot ointments, wrist wraps, massage emulsions

Your participation in any of the following parts of the program, will ease down the amount of finances we need to invest in the above mentioned equipment and expenses.

We don´t want anyone to just give us "plain" money, so instead, we have created an offer of souvenirs and gifts you can buy and support us this way. Many of the items are handmade by local artists.

We have created a sepparate 2007/08 Dog Bootie Program, where each purchase of a sticker will help us raise money for dog booties for our huskies. Click here to learn more.

Since Jachym is a talented photographer, we decided to create more public awareness of his photography work and combine it with part of our sponsor program. Please, visit our "mini" SALES GALERY OF JACHYM'S PHOTOGRAPHY, where you can view and order Jachym´s work, in handmade wooden and/or doggy paw print frames.

Generally, you can also help us by purchasing any of the souvenirs, trail signs and other items listed in our small ONLINE SHOP.

We have also prepared a program called "MY FAVOURITE DOG" If you have a favourite furry athlete in our team and would like to know how you can support his/her preparation for the upcomming races, you can contact us already now! :)

In preparation are some quite original handmade items, fun polls, and more. Don´t forget to come back soon to check what´s new.

We want all of you, who will decide to be a part of our team and help us follow our dreams, to have fun and to enjoy this 2007/08 Support Program!

A big THANK YOU to all our supporters - Your help means a lot!
