Is there going to be a late entry fee?

I heard gas was being provided to encourage out-of-town participation?? Good idea. However, I also heard that the gas would not be stationed in the checkpoints ahead of time like the Nome-Golovin race. Is this the case? If so, what's the reasoning? Thanks for the info.

 
At 10:25 PM, Blogger Laban Jr. said...

pit passes, gas at checkpoints, gas prices in villages come on throw some of this stuff out there so maybe some participation can figure out whats going on, or are there too many secrets to give out

With the gas prices, sled parts, and snowmachine prices going up, I hope lions club don't try to rip us on "pit bibs", we shouldn't have to buy that stuff. We don't need bibs in the pit, just some good officials at each checkpoint to keep an eye out.

it is a pissing contest, whoever pisses the most wins.......

 
At 9:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

All you guys typing this stuff are real Kooonuks in my book, I just want to ask. Are you guys racing? or are you just one of the guys that are on the side of the trail with a jug in your hand every year yelling and screaming crap? Grow up man, every race is different! If you want a pissing contest you all should hold a meeting and put a bunch of cash in a hat and the best one wins! With that you can fight and moan about that stuff rather then who is doing wrong in Kotzebue.

Crowley is donating the gas again this year....but the club is having to purchase the tank....it will not be in drums...no way to get it to the villages....
BIG THANK YOU TO HERMIE AT CROWLEY...THANKS FOR ALL THE SUPPORT....

C fan class.

 
At 11:29 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

class c -6
class b- 28
class a- 16

 
At 1:03 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

looks like some pretty good payouts if you ask me. c-class 3600 for 1st b-class 8550 a-class 5850 for 1st and add 2000 for overall. from the sounds of it that's as good as the nome-golovin was. atleast when i talked to evan booth he said he got 6000+ for his class.

BALLZ-OUT RACING
POLARIS ALL THE WAY!!

 
At 4:35 PM, Anonymous nateinnome said...

Darn good payouts!

If by chance class B were to take overall, such is happening more often now, the winner would take home about $10,500 not including calcutta.

If class C wins overall, the class winner WITH overall will not take home as much as class B first place.

Simply because twice the entrants in class B.

I see Tre West, winner of NG this year on a 600 Cat and Overall, is riding his dads F1000 up there in the big class. May be a good race between him Jimmy Baldwin!

'Course, there's two Mach Z's in in too, and they ain't slow.

Oh, boy, wish I was there to watch. Hope the radio station does a better job this year broadcasting, we'll be listening in for sure.

Be safe!

Does anyone know what the estimated winning time might be for this year?

 
At 2:21 PM, Anonymous Louis said...

Listening from Nome..

Its 2:15 the race is over for most. Tried to listen to KOTZ on the Internet for coverage......absolutely ridiculous!

Who's bright idea to have the Dog race finish at the same time as the Snowmachine race?

Announcer at the finish line talking with scratched riders while finishers are coming in, not knowing one class from the other, etc...CONFUSING AS HELL!!

Only reports going out from Kiana, nothing from anywhere else....??
Noorvik?
Selawik?

LOTS of room for improvement.

 
At 2:27 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

At 3:06 PM, Anonymous nateinnome said...

Class A- large sleds

1. Steffen Schaeffer F7 2:37:52
2. Harold Lambert F7 2:38:09
3. Jimmy Baldwin F8 2:42:40

Class B- 600's

1. Steven Williamson F6 2:35:55
2. Pookie Vivieros F6 2:36:20
3. Mike Morgan IQ6 2:38:09

Class C- Fan sleds

1. Dan Henry C Z440 3:19:39
2. Randy Toshavik C 570 3:22:22
3. Jeese Crumbley S 550 ?

Steven Williamson set a new course record according to Nate Kotch. He was riding an Arctic Cat F6. He then won the overall bonus of $2000.

Amen on the poor race coverage. We need to get Nome's Ham group up there next year.

Maybe Nate would go do the race radio coverage for KOTZ??

what happen to gary n. from kka

 
At 11:44 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Alot of belts/shocks/tracks were blown, but that something to be expected in a 205 mile race when everyone has the same goal, go fast and finish the race. I personally blew a belt and my rear shocks.

As far as conditions the river was fast and smooth, coast was full of loose snow, Selawik flats had good snow conditions 2/3 to noorvik, then 1/3 was tundra with ice and barely any snow.

 
At 9:33 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

maybe some phone calls to KOTZ will help out with the broadcasting...i hear people were calling in from the villages to give reports and were being put on hold....the ham radio club had expressed interest a year or so ago but backed out...they would be more then welcome to come up and help out....

Sounds like everyone had a good time in kotz, very well run event.
Congrads to Team Arctic dominating the rest of the field.

despite the poor coverage on kotz radio i think the turnout and purse were excellent. otz lions did a good job this year and can only get better. even though i didn't race i thank them for putting on a good show. GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Archie was overall a great race. Purse was phenomenal...can't beat that! Hopefully from here on out there is only room for improvement. Jason Avery was wonderful and did a fine job. Keep up the good work and we'll see you next year.
WEATHER was definatly an adding factor to the fun and enjoyment of the race.

P.S. You did a great job on lowering the entry fee, now let's try and get rid of the pit bibs next year....they are ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS and take away from those who want to volunteer to help racers.
$15.00 per Pit Bib is so like NONSENSE!
At any rate.....Good job!

 
At 7:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

$15.00 per pit bid is so like an unemployed couple wasting their money at bingo instead of buying their babies diapers and milk.
