Fosters: Sandwich Sled Dog Races up in the air

UPDATE: According to their web site, the race has been officially cancelled.

This winter has been a hard one for the sled dog races.  Fosters is reporting that the Sandwich Sled Dog Race may be postponed.  Hopefully, the snow today will be enough to hold them.

For the second time in two weeks, a local sled dog race might be a no-go because there’s no snow.The Sandwich Sidehillers Winter Trails Club is holding its collective breath that a storm scheduled to begin today might actually deliver the forecasted 2-6 or more inches of snow that would make Saturday’s Sandwich Sled Dog Races possible.

“At this point, we’re totally dependent on the storm that we get Tuesday,” said Race Secretary Julie Dolan on Monday.

A final decision as to whether the races are on will be made by 2 p.m. Wednesday and posted online at
