The School Tour is delivered by local mushers to interested schools in the Prince Albert Area. The Gateway North Sled Dog Race Association takes requests from schools and co-ordinates local mushers to present their sport to the classrooms. They get to see and touch the equipment, the dogs and meet the musher.
Teachers that would like a visit from real dog sledder and his dogs, please contact us. Please remember that this program is run by volunteers. Also the dogsledders that visit the schools get very busy as race time approaches. Ask for your visit well before the race time to improve your chances of getting a musher to visit your school. Some years demand is is very high and we may not be able to visit every school that makes a request.
The Gateway North Sled Dog Association would like to thank Stefaan De Marie, Mirriam Korner, Nancy Dragan and Luke Naber for their help with this program.
