Judy, Is it possible to set up a section specifically for Junior races. You have sections for Distance, Sprint, etc, East, west, etc. How about just a Junior section.

I only know of the Jr Irod, Quest and Race to the sky.

What other junior races are out there?

Maybe this would foster more interest in races setting up junior races.

Hmmm...

Most junior only races are identified in the race name in the calendars.

Examples:
http://www.sleddogcentral.com/schedules/alaska/distance.htm
http://www.sleddogcentral.com/schedules/alaska/sprint.htm

I think the majority of junior racers are limited geographically and I'm not sure splitting the calendars into an additional section would be productive.

I wouldn't want to remove them from the regional calendars so it would require duplicate listings and I'm not sure I see the advantage of that.

I'll give it some thought though and welcome feedback here.

As being somewhat of a Jr. Racer yet, I would love seeing a section like that. I know I search each area looking for Jr. Races, because I would hope my mom could drive me to the one's made more for my age. It didn't matter that I could never get to them, I always tried to convince her. I don't think if you did do this you would have to split is not productive, more or less you could just have a Jr. section with the races listed because on the 3 column it says location. I think that would be enough.

It could be as simple as color coding races that incorporate Jr races. Or adding a column like race status that says Jr race.

Just an idea to make it easier to find the Jr races. Thanks

I agree with dog mushers dad. Maybe something easier to find Jr. Races?
