OUR COMMITTEE (hover to learn more about the member)

I've been involved in the sport of Sled dog racing in Queensland since 2003 in which time I have seen the sport grow and new breeds of dogs bought into the sport. Over time the faces in the club change and also the dogs may change but the core value of the club remains the same it's about having fun with your dogs safely

I've been involved in the sport of Sled dog racing in Queensland since 2003 in which time I have seen the sport grow and new breeds of dogs bought into the sport. Over time the faces in the club change and also the dogs may change but the core value of the club remains the same it's about having fun with your dogs safely

I've been involved in this sport since 2014 when our 2 huskies were just puppies. My wife, daughter and I attended majority of the events in 2015 when our puppies were able to race. We then rescued another husky from SHAMROQ and have been involved since!! We have met  some great people along the way and NEGRC has provided us with amazing friends and experiences!

I have only been with the club and in the sport for a couple of years but boy have I enjoyed it! It is a great family activity and you get to meet lots of like-minded people. It keeps you active helps you learn new ways of dog training.

In 2014 our family started with 2 dogs and wanted to find an outlet for their energy needs. We fell in love with the sport and now have 4 dogs which we adopted from SHAMROQ. We have made many friends over the years, nor just within the club, but also interstate and international. This has eventuate into hanging out socially, not just seeing everyone at race events.

I have been involved with NEGRC and Sled dog sports for 9 years now. Rescue is one of my passions with nearly all my dogs being rescues. This sport is like a family we get together and have fun regardless of the weather or time of the morning.

My first husky, Maya needed something apart from chewing garden hoses and pipes so I sent her to Wagtails where I met Flick Carige. She encouraged me to give NEGRC a try out and I have been involved ever since. I got another sky Anuk and NEGRC has given me many opportunies to have fun with my dogs - doing what they were bred to do in a supportive and welcoming club!

I started in the sport in 2014 with my parents and 2 huskies. I instantly fell in love with the sport and adopted 2 more dogs along the way. This sport has taken me to Victoria, NSW and New Zealand to race ex-Iditarod dogs in a 30km race and the Wanaka Sled Dog Festival. I am proud to be on the committee, shaping the sport, introducing new members and giving tips to Juniors like I was!

These are the people that set up the tracks for your racing experience. They will change the markers between classes so that racing can continue and fix up any safety issues noted along the way.

At the end of the day most members will hang around and help pack up, load up, ready for next time!
