The Iditarod family met at race headquarters today to remember Joe Delia. Joe has helped the race out in so many ways, not the least of which is offering his home as the Skwentna Checkpoint from the very beginning of the race. You can learn more about Joe and his dedication to the race here.
Even the students here in Baltimore know the name Joe Delia and the story of the Skwentna Checkpoint. This year our first graders decorated their door as the Skwentna Checkpoint with Joe and his wife Norma watching the race out the window!
Happy trails Joe. You will be missed!
