No snow, no race.

The logic was as simple as that when it came to cancelling this year's John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon. However, the timing of the cancellation and the immediate decision not to postpone rather than cancel beckoned questions.

You can hear Community Connection every Tuesday and Thursday at 8am on Northland Morning.
