Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day here in the U.S., a day to remember the fallen.

Please take a time-out from your every day activities and remember those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy the things we tend to take for granted.

And while this is a U.S. holiday, please also remember all those allied troops who fought and died for the same ideals alongside our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.

Last, not least, please thank a vet for his or her service.
It's an easy thing to do and means a lot to those who put their lives on the line each and every day, so we can go about ours.

Support Our Troops!

Catching up

We're finally caught up on spring orders and continue on with the next batch of carts to be shipped into the summer months.
The spring rush really caught us by surprise, albeit a nice surprise, and we tried to speed-up the process by changing a few things a round the shop. As it turned out, the new process ended up delaying the delivery of carts to our customers, so we're back to the old, tried and tested routine and will be able to deliver carts as promised.
To all our new friends customers we would like to apologize for the delays in recent weeks and thank you for your patience!

We've already had a few inquiries for carts for fall training and current orders are extending well into July, so if you're thinking about a new dryland rig for the fall, please contact us as soon as possible to ensure timely delivery.

Thanks again!

Busy Times in "Arctis Land"

Wow, time flies when you're having fun...and when you're busy, too!
It's been a great spring for Arctis, thanks to all of our new friends and customers from all four corners of the country. From Georgia, to Ohio and Illinois, all the way up to Alaska and way back down here in southern California. Thank you so much!

In between busy times at the shop, we're still able to participate in events around the area, like the Pet Expo and Wag-A-Thon mentioned below, plus we get to run the puppies 2-3 times a week with our local Urban Mushing group. So far, temperatures are still ok to run, if we get on the trail early in the morning or later in the evening.

Since it's getting warmer everywhere around the country, dog sledding events are few and far between, so more time for us to catch up on those orders.
