Joinson Receives Second Penalty

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Bib #4, Jerry Joinson, has been assigned a time penalty by Race Marshal Doug Grilliot for not providing adequate food for a dropped dog.
 
Trail procedure Rule #25 requires each dropped dog to be left with four pounds of food – two pounds per dog per day, for two days at each dropped dog location. The time penalty assigned is two hours. The penalty will be added to the 44 hours Joinson will already be serving in Dawson City – 36 hours as part of the mandatory layover, plus a previous penalty.
 
Extra dog food is on hand at all checkpoints and dropped dog locations to ensure adequate supplies are available.
