Laconia Sled Dog Derby set for competition Feb. 22-24
LACONIA - Cancelled last weekend over weather worries, the Laconia Sled Dog Derby has been rescheduled for Feb. 22 to 24, organizers announced.
Diane Lyman, spokesman for the race, said organizers decided late last month to postpone the race because there was no snow.
She said races can be held on ice, but enough snow is needed to allow for a snow hook, which allows a sled driver to brake. The three days of races draw anywhere from 30 to 45 teams, which come from New England, the Midwest and Canada.
