Sled Dog Races at Dinner Plain

Getting Ready to StartA few days ago on the 8th of august a rest day me and about 20 other people went to see the sled dog races.

After morning the head count (9:00 one) we left, we began walking towards the DP hut (Dinner Plain hut) this was where the sled dog races started and finished.

We walked towards the stone memorial near the DP slope, and we saw a 3 dog (+ 1 man) team racing down the cross country slope there.

Then we continued walking (off the track mind) and saw another 4 teams pass us, when we reached the DP hut we watched about 7 more teams come in.

Malamute husky When I got bored of that I wandered around with some other T.A.S students (The Alpine School) looking at the other dog teams getting ready to go and resting after going. After getting bored of that I joined another group patting dogs, while patting the dogs I learned of some of the different breeds of husky:
•    Malamutes (big hair ones)
•    Husky crosses (all different ones)
•    Alaskan Huskies(short haired ones)

Cross breed huskies or short haired onesI think this husky was having a good timeI also heard about a Labrador team and a Guide dog team (what’s the difference?) but only saw the Labrador one. When the second (or third or fifth) set of races began I made my way to the starting line to watch the 6 to 8 dog teams go out. After taking hundreds of photos we headed back after having a good morning watching huskies.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are three campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place".
