Team NWT gets underway

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Debbie Moss and her rink from the Yellowknife Curling Centre are off and running at the Canadian Seniors Curling Championships in Fredericton, N.B.

Game one for the women was against Manitoba's Terry Ursel and it wasn't the start Moss was looking for as she ended up on the wrong end of a 10-1 decision. Moss ended up shaking hands after Ursel had stolen three in the sixth end.

The ladies were set to play Sherry Anderson and Saskatchewan later on Monday before another doubleheader against Newfoundland and Labrador and Quebec yesterday.

See a future edition of Yellowknifer for an update on how they're doing.

Hockey coach returns

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFEA familiar face to the Yk Minor Hockey Association is making a return for a March Break camp.

Aaron Konecsni and AK Hockey will be back on the ice to work with several players from the initiation age group right on up to bantams. The players will be split into three groups of 16 players each with work being done on passing, shooting while on the stride, stick handling and body checking.

Everything gets going on Friday afternoon at the Multiplex and continues Saturday all day before wrapping up on Sunday.

Going to the dogs

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFEThe Long John Jamboree kicks off this weekend with one of the longest-running continuous races in the North.

The Dominion Diamond Canadian Championship Dog Derby will feature some of the best mushers from around North America taking on the trails on Great Slave Lake and it begins on Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. near the Dettah ice road.

The race is 150 miles long over three days, each day seeing the dogs run 50 miles. Yellowknifer will once again sponsor the Yellowknifer Knife, which will go to the top Yellowknife musher after the end of the race.
