Alaskan Region Member Attends Iditarod Dog Sledding Race with Senator Lisa Murkowski

Flight Services Station (FS1) member Bobby Scurlock recently attended the annual Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race with U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, also known simply as The Iditarod, is an annual long-distance sled dog race held in Alaska in early March. The teams of dogs and their handlers, also called mushers, travel from Anchorage to Nome, which typically takes about 8-15 days. During the kickoff event, Scurlock introduced himself to Senator Murkowski and told her about where he worked, as this was his first time representing NATCA at this event. Scurlcock and his family shared in the excitement of the race with Senator Murkowski as they watched the dogs and mushers begin their long journey to Nome.
