Ruedi Bolt

President

I have lived in Alaska for the past 8 years.  I came from Switzerland to explore one of the last wild places on earth and started to mush to travel the north in this untouched beauty on a non-motorized way.

My name is Christine Stitt and I am the current Vice President for WDMA.  I have been in Willow for 16 years and active with dog mushing with our 4 children for the last 14 years.  I organize the Willow Jr. 100 and the Willow 300 Sled Dog Races.  My goal as a member of WDMA is to continue to see the sport of dog mushing succeed in our community .  As a member I also am pro active in the humane treatment of all sled dogs, and or working animals.  I have held many positions on the WDMA board and hope to continue to remain active with the community and its efforts to keep the sport alive.

Marianne Schoppmeyer

Treasurer

I have lived in Alaska since 1994 and worked in education.  My daughter is the musher of the family while I consider myself "handler extraordinaire".  Together we manage a kennel of 19 Alaskan Huskies with an additional pair of Siberians and 1 very large Malamute.  I advocate for this great sport and lifestyle daily in my classroom through a variety of activities including having many guest mushers stop in and share their stories.  I am an active member of WDMA and help organize the Willow 300 as well as the Ladies 5 Mile/5 Dog Twilight Race and volunteer my time at other local races and activities promoting the sport and lifestyle.
