Teasley & Sled Dog Team to Send Off U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree

IPSSSDR’s Teasley and Sled Dog Team to Send Off U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree

Jackson, Wyoming – October 21, 2010 – Frank Teasley, owner of Jackson Hole Iditarod Sled Dog Tours and
director of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race (IPSSSDR), will send off the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree from Jackson by a sled dog team of sixteen on November 6, 2010, in a Capitol Christmas Tree celebration scheduled to take place at 4:30 p.m. on Jackson’s Town Square.

"It’s an honor to be included in this event," says Teasley. "Plus, it’s an opportunity for the people of Wyoming to show pride in our great state." For the first time in history, Wyoming will be providing the Christmas Tree for the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol building. The 67-foot Engelmann Spruce – taller than a 7-story building – is coming from the Bridger Teton National Forest, where it was selected by the Superintendent of the Capitol Grounds in July. The tree’s long journey to Washington, D.C. will include a week-long tour through Wyoming.

Festivities at the November 6 celebration will include a short parade from the Home Ranch parking lot to Town Square, guest speakers, music, a tree blessing ceremony, performance of a song written by local students, and Teasley’s sled dog send-off.

In addition, Wyoming Landscape Contractors will be handing out 500 tree saplings, and hot chocolate and cookie refreshments will be served.

The International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race was founded in 1996 by Frank Teasley to make sled dog racing more accessible to the public.
