North American Tamaskan Sled Dog Gathering 2015

Post by AZDehlin » Wed Mar 05, 2014 1:57 am

Would any one be interested in coming up to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with their Tamaskan and learning to mush with them? I have been thinking about this for a year but now that the race season is over and next year will be really light bringing the joy of sled dogging to the Tamaskan Community has kinda been a dream of mine since I first stepped on the runners

I'd love to, but realistically it likely wouldn't be possible for us to attend... it's a long way for us to travel from here in Europe! ;)

I most certainly would love to go! It would be a really fun meet up and see a team of Tamaskans working the sleds :D

Yep, me too. Although I'm still trying to get Max to understand that the urban mushing scooter is about him pulling, not me! :roll: Hopefully, he'll "get it" this year. Please let us know logistics and costs as we get closer. Sounds like fun!

Right now we are looking at the date of February 28, 2015 for North American Tamaskan to get a chance at being a sled dog. Owners will get to mush the team with their tam if they choose. How does this date work for everyone? There will be a small fee cause we are using some of the sled dogs at the kennel and we will use their dog sleds, harnesses and other equipment. Again all Tamaskan that are generally good being around other dogs are welcome to come join in the fun.

I am excited to meet Kona, I have only met Curie and Dokken so far. Hopefully I will also get to meet Gossip, Hachi, and Navarre at some point too.


So Excited to share this experience with everyone interested.

-Every one will get photos and Video of them mushing their tamaskan too.
-Hoping for a Pack walk on Friday afternoon/evening too if the weather isn't too cold.
-Plan on having lunch for everyone too after we mush.

Wow, this sounds fantastic! Will they offer any prelim instruction on how to drive a sled team or will "newbies" be passengers only? Just curious.

I will be tied up with a newborn that time of year so I won't be able to attend. I hope someone takes lots of photos and video, though!

I will take tons! It will be so awesome if 5 or 6 tams go! My pictures and videos may not be top notch though ;) hahaha. I am guessing Kate will take a few herself :)

People will get instruction before they run their tam with a team. If they would rather ride they are welcome to do that instead too.

My plan is to have my go pro on the sled so everyone can have video of their dog running... I will also take video and photos :)

What a great time! Kona will be writing about it and don't be surprised if several related creations get posted here later.
THANK YOU to all involved.
