Give a musher a choice between traveling down the trail or standing up in front of a crowd of people, it’s guaranteed that the standing up to speak would be the more painful. Some are a bit at ease, but the folks we’ve been following the last few days are a pretty solitary bunch and these banquets are really a means to an end. They’d easily be more at ease in the dog yard.
After a great home cooked Italian meal and some dessert, the crowd of a few hundred listened to mushers regale their experiences on the trail. Unfortunately there were a few scratches this year, but even those folks were allowed to stand up and thank sponsors and friends.
In the end the crowd rose to congratulation Pete and the Team for a job well done.
Thank you to everyone and all of the great sponsors that allow this to happen. It is truly for you and because of your support that this endeavor exists and allows Pete and the Team to be successful. Thanks again and we will see you soon for the 2017 Iditarod!
Peter Kaiser and his 9 dogs crossed the 2017 Kuskokwim 300 Finish Line at 10:37 this morning with an elapsed time of 40Hrs 7Minutes and 54 Seconds. He bested his 2016 Elapsed time of 40:36:21 by almost 30 minutes! Pete’s “3-Pete” of the race was marked by very cold temperatures, but trails with snow that made it much easier on the dogs.
Team Kaiser bested the second place Team, Brent Sass, by 46 minutes. Pete steadily increased the lead out of Tuluksak, unlike last year when Sass was slowly catching him and finishing only 8 minutes behind.
A great crowd of spectators braved the cold weather and extreme (-50) windchills to welcome the Bethel borne Champion home. “It’s great to see all of the folks,” he said, “It’s why we do this. The support of the community is really what drives this.”
Pete will take home over $25,000 in prize money for the Win!
It’s been a long evening for many of us, but there are many Teams still on the trail, so make sure to head on down and cheer them across the Line. It is truly a great accomplishment to finish this race.
