      The Sun Dogs movie is the BEST 20 bucks I have ever spent in my life! Wow, I was riveted to my seat all through and I cannot wait to watch it again. No sugar coating, just lots of real life stuff and a WONDERFUL story. I highly recommend it!

              EXCITING news from the Jamaican Dog Sled Team!

              I'll merge this thread with the sticky topic down the road but this is worthy of it's own topic!

              Newton is registered to run in 2010 Iditarod!

              <span style="font-weight: bold">On Saturday in Wasilla, Alaska, Newton Marshall of the Jamaica Dogsled Team (JDT) officially signed on to test his skills on the 2010 Iditarod.

              Three-time champion Lance Mackey, who will be training Marshall as he prepares for the race,was on-hand in Wasilla to deliver the required documentation. He was noticeably excited to have the opportunity to partner with JDT.

              “Newton has proved himself to be courageous and able to beat the odds as he did last year at the Yukon Quest,” said Mackey. “I am proud to be a part of the team that will see Newton complete the last great race on earth.”

              Marshall will be a rookie racing the Iditarod, but proved he is qualified to face this test, having raced the Yukon Quest in 2009 and winning the Challenge of the North Award as a result. This award was given for his perseverance in spite of all the odds against him. Yukon Quest race officials selected Marshall as the award recipient.

              “I can’t wait to return to Alaska to run the Iditarod,” said Marshall. “I know Lance will have a great team ready for me and I fell in love with the area this past winter. It’s going to be great!”

              The 2010 Iditarod begins next March in Anchorage.

              The Jamaica Dogsled Team is sponsored by Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, Chukka Caribbean Adventures, WestJet Vacations, Alpine Aviation and Annamaet Petfoods

              What is most exciting is that Lance Mackey is going to help Newton in the race! This is so awesome, I can't even put it into words. We're gonna have to have a Iditarod party in march!!!

                      OMG! Wouldn't THAT be a hoot! I'd have to be honest and tell her what I think.

                      I'd most likely want to be in Nome for the finish but due to time constraints, I'd prolly head to the starting line. The race is so long I couldn't possibly be gone long enough to do both cause it's brutal here that time of hear here too. Maybe take in a couple of checkpoints, that would be FUN!

                          Re: Getting ready for IDITAROD!!!

                          If you are on facebook and want to track the adventures of Robb and Newton during this years races you can:

                          <span style="font-weight: bold">Become a fan</span> of the Jamaica sled dog team

                          <span style="font-weight: bold">Friend</span> Damion Robb, Ken Davis (Robb's host), Newton Marshall, and Lance Mackey, who is helping Newton and is a three time Iditarod champion.

                          Newton is up in Alaska getting ready for the Iditarod while Robb is on his way to Minnesota to run the sprint race circuit.

                          Ken Davis frequently posts video of his team runs on his facebook page, and about a week ago I saw the funniest ever video posted on Newtons page of him shooting a rifle for the first time. His commentary beforehand was pretty funny and need I say when the gun went off, Newton landed on his rear in the snowbank!
