Yet another day of volunteers and sponsors working tirelessly to make the 2013 Iditarod happen at Airland transport in Anchorage. Airland was taken over by 60+ volunteers, led by Pat Owens where they sorted and re-packed food and supplies for the volunteers working at each of the checkpoints. The Airland employees shrunk their operations down and worked around the Iditarod folks to make it all work.
The volunteers sorted, counted and packed everything from plastic forks, canned tuna, hotdog buns, cookies, hot chocolate, coffee, bathroom tissue, soup and much, much more. The Iditarod airforce will begin flying these supplies and the straw, HEET, lathe and musher’s food drop bags to some of the checkpoints beginning tomorrow…weather permitting.
Look for more as time goes on.
