Sled dog race called off this weekend

LACONIA — The Lakes Region Sled Dog Club has decided that trail conditions have deteriorated so much that it won’t be able to hold the Lacona World Championship Sled Dog Derby this coming weekend.

The club met last night past this newspaper's deadline and was scheduled to vote on whether to cancel this year’s race entirely or postpone in until the weekend of March 2-4.
