Sled dog teams get ready to break out of the gate this weekend for the second annual running of the East Meets West Dryland Challenge. Danny Melville is the founder and manager of the Jamaican Sled Dog Team. He said he got started in this form of racing while on a trip to Canada looking for touring equipment. Melville said he found a sled-like contraption with wheels and was told it was made for someone who wanted to do 'dryland' racing with dogs. He thought that might work in Jamaica because the country has lots of dogs. The East Meets West Dryland Challenge runs both Saturday and Sunday, November 17th and 18th.
