Lack of snow scuttles Laconia sled dog race

LACONIA - Lack of snow forced the Lakes Region Sled Dog Club to cancel this week's three-day World Championship Sled Dog Derby, but hope to reschedule it to next weekend if a predicted snow storm materializes.

This is the second time the club canceled the race this year because of inadequate snow. The three-day event initially was scheduled for Feb. 8-10.

Club members will decide Monday whether to reschedule the race to March 1-3.

"Pray for snow," club president and trail boss Jim Lyman said Wednesday.

This year's derby would be the 84th running, he said.
