This is for all the folks who like to be outdoors in the winter, in northern PA, and central to northern NY. Not limited to just the NY/PA area, the Pennsylvania sled dog club also hosts events in wisconsin, the new england area, and new jersey. The Pennsylvania sled dog club hosts several regional events all through the winter. The events all center around sled dogs, and sled dog races, but are a fun family event that helps to cure cabin fever. They have classes ranging from pro adult classes, to pee-wee children's classes. At most of the events, you normally don't have to bring your own dogs or sled, a lot of the teams sponsor different activities where you can learn how to handle a sled. This is a quote from their site, http://www.pennsleddogclub.com/ , "Today the club has over 150 members from Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Delaware, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, New Jersey and Alaska. Classes at club races range from the International Sled Dog Racing Association's Sanctioned classes right down to the Pee Wee classes. Sportsman classes for beginning and recreational mushers are also popular. We also feature pure bred classes. Many club members compete in weight pulls sanctioned by IWPA." They are always looking for new members, so if anyone is interested, go to their site and check them out. I have two pre-teen daughters who compete in the pee-wee class, and they seem to enjoy themselves immensely. Another bonus to going to their events is that they go to some very beautiful out of the way places, and most of those places, like the tug hill region in upstate NY, also host several summer outdoor activities. So this is also a way to get info on what is available in the areas that the PDSC travels to, maybe this would help you plan some summer get away activities.
The magazine chores get busy in the fall. This is our favorite season for filming trail runs, off-road travel and adventure, riding and filming with the dirt motorcycles and providing support for community service projects. Fall means cooler weather for us, colors changing in the high country, hunting and fishing pursuits and more four-wheeling activities. Before winter arrives in our Eastern Sierra region, the four-wheel drive and OHV communities get outdoors and active! Additionally, there are 4x4 events and industry gatherings. For those interested in where we will be and when, here is our Fall 2013 event schedule. September-October: Outdoor filming at northern Nevada, including the wild horses, high country and remote deserts. October 4th-6th, we will be covering the Lucas Oil Off-Road Expo, Pomona, California in HD video. November: Last of our seasonal access to the higher country, still accessing single- and two-track travel as we move into the time for the SEMA/AAPEX Shows at Las Vegas. We'll be covering these shows in HD video the week of November 4th to 8th, traveling from the Reno/Fernley area on November 4th and returning the 8th, on the show floors the 5th through the 7th—possibly the morning of the 8th if the action demands it! For the balance of November, the magazine's technical projects get attention... December: As we begin to hunker down for winter, the amount of snow in the higher country dictates our outdoor filming and photography activities. We'll stay busy diving into the magazine's mechanical projects as we approach the holidays and end of the year! Moses
