Information Regarding Account Details

Good Evening All!

Important Announcement re: Race Entries and future payments to SDAS

Due to an unexpected delay in transferring the SDAS Bank and PayPal accounts from the previous treasurer, who stepped down at the AGM, to the new treasurer who was appointed shortly thereafter, we are unable to access the funds in these accounts.

We are now asking that you Please Do Not make payments into any saved accounts you have for SDAS!

We have a new PayPal account in place: for moving forward and whilst we resolve the matter with the bank, can anyone who does not have a PayPal account that needs to make a payment for membership or race entry please notify us via email when you send your entry form. From there we can send you a PayPal invoice which you will be able to pay without setting up a PayPal account.
Note* If you have already made your payment for Darnaway can you please let us know either via email or PM to the SDAS FB page

The entry form has now been updated with the our new PayPal details.

Dear Members,

Based on the weather conditions the World Sleddog Association (WSA) as host and the community of Zuberec and the sled dog sport club Flying Husky as organizers had do make the difficult decision to cancel the WSA World Championships Sprint and Mid-Distance 2020, which were due to take place in Zuberec from 6- 9 February 2020.

Following this cancellation, Helen Lundberg, President of the IFSS, has reached out to the WSA members to invite mushers with Nordic Breeds to compete in the Registered Nordic Breed classes at the IFSS European Championship in Åsarna, Sweden from February 19-23rd.

Åsarna offers beautiful trails and great conditions. The Swedish Championship was organised there a few weeks ago. The trail was very much appreciated by all participants and the last days have brought further snow.

The deadline for registrations is tomorrow (5 February) and entries have to go through your local IFSS member federation.
For SDAS members, this is the BSSF (British Sled dog Sports Federation)
