FAIRBANKS, AK-A note for tomorrow. The Yukon Quest will have the Alaska Annual General Membership meeting tomorrow, Thursday the 16th, at the Alpine Lodge at 6pm. This meeting is open to the public and you can meet the board and suggest race ideas. Also members will vote for a new board of directors.
Judy Currier, Nicolle Hendrix, Stephanie Knaebel, Bill McDonald, and Sue Sprinkle are the nominees. Four out of the five will be voted in.
The 2014 Yukon Quest starts right here in Fairbanks on the first day of February next year. We caught up with Marti Steury executive director of the Yukon Quest about the importance of this meeting.
"Basically we have nine board members, a musher's representative and then eight board members that each have alternating two year terms. So we'll pick up four new board members tomorrow and the ballots are all out. If anybody would like to become a member and come join us at the Apline Lodge, tomorrow night, Thursday at 6 pm, " Steury said. "You can sign up to be an individual member for forty dollars and then you have a right to vote and you can help pick the new board members that are going to take the Yukon Quest into 2014."
