The future of the Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race is in jeopardy, after a series of questionable bookkeeping errors which are now under investigation by race officials and by the State Department of Revenue. The Race Manager has since been fired and replaced by Acting Race Manager Myron Angstman. He says the Kuskokwim 300 relies heavily on income from the local sale of rippies, and the former manager neglected to pay, and under-reported, the taxes owed to the city of Bethel.
Posted on the k300.org web site this afternoon:
The K-300 is facing serious financial issues at this time. If you are willing to help with reorganization of the financial structure of the race, give Myron a call. The race needs financial support, as well as off season volunteer support, in order to assure that the 30th running of the 300 will happen.
