Yukon Quest welcomes two new Alaska board members
May 6, 2011 (Fairbanks, Alaska) – The Yukon Quest’s Alaska Annual General Membership meeting (AGM) was recently held in Fairbanks.
Two current board members were voted back in and two new members will join the team. Voted back in for the Alaska board were Becky Alexander and Jodi Blakley (Bonacci).
Becky is a 15-year Yukon Quest volunteer and held the position of Angel Creek Checkpoint Manager for five years. She is also a co-founder of the Two Rivers 200. Jodi was appointed to the board in 2010 and has been involved with the Yukon Quest as a sponsor for many years.
New board members joining the team are Sue Sprinkle and Jim Gibertoni.
As a volunteer and graphic designer, Sue has been involved with the Yukon Quest for over a decade. She works with both the Alaska and Yukon boards to create world-class race posters and race annuals. Jim has been a Yukon Quest race pilot for the past four years. He also brings more than 35 years of experience as a Commercial Pilot, and is certified as a Multi Engine Land & Sea Flight Instructor.
Meanwhile, a new Musher’s Representative for the Alaska board was also chosen. Doug Grilliot agreed to take on the position. Grilliot, a former Race Marshall for the Yukon Quest, ran the race in both 2001 and 2002, and has sat on the Alaska board in the past.
