But you would be surprised to hear how many folks stop at the Hi Mountain Drugstore in Kamas asking for directions to Evanston. "You can't get there from here," reply the crafty locals. "Least not unless you know how to mush." They are referring to the annual Samak to Bear River Service dog sled race coming up this weekend. At 2:00 p.m. Saturday, teams of mushers and their well-trained hounds will set out from Bear River Service (located near the Evanston entrance of Rte. 150) running hard over 43 miles of winding, snow-covered highway with an altitude gain of 5,000 feet. The racers are expected to begin arriving in Samak, on the Kamas end of the road, between 6 and 8 p.m. But that is only half the race. The same teams will have one night to recover before heading back to the starting line at Bear River beginning at 7 a.m. Sunday. The rules are simple. Racers must check in at each end. Mushers can drop dogs but they can't add fresh ones. (Most drivers will run teams of six to 12 dogs on a double hitch.) In the past, teams were required to carry a mini mum of survival gear. But this year it is up to the individual drivers. According Accord-ing to reports from teams who ran the road for practice last weekend, the road has been well-packed by snowmobiles. snow-mobiles. And since the two laps will be run in daylight, there is not as much concern about getting lost. Last year and the year before, the race format was different. The teams started in Samak and then were required to log a four-hour layover at Bear River Service Ser-vice before heading back. The staggered starting times meant that some teams were running in the dead of night. According to Diana Maxell of Oakley, whose husband N ext two Town Races will tell the tale If you had put money on the defending Town Race champions when this season started, you'd be getting worried about now. With two races left on the schedule, none of the individuals in-dividuals who won championships cham-pionships a year ago is back on top of the standings this season. Not one. The schedule calls for the series to continue next Monday Mon-day on the Park City Ski Area's Clementine run, then wind up two weeks later with a two-day affair divided between Clementine (for B's, C's and cross-country) and Ladies' G.S. (for A,', Vets and Pros). To calculate the individual season championships, results from all seven races will be used, according to Town Race Coordinator Bill Skinner. However, the team championships will be determined using only the best five results. The winner of each race (individual or team) is awarded 35 points. Second place is worth 30 points, third is worth 25 and fourth is worth 20. Here are the current leaders : In the men's crosscountry cross-country class, Brad Makoff and Karl Jacobson are currently tied for first with 135 points. Brad Bubb, who won a year ago, was knocked out of contention by an early-season early-season injury. In the women's crosscountry cross-country class, Karri Hays has a narrow five-point lead over Cindy Fish. Last year's winner, Lea Battiste, is in third, 15 points off the lead. In the cross-country team standings, the Ski Service Ser-vice Center has a 25-point lead over Mileti's. In the men's C class, Lee Walsh leads with 95 points, four better than Lee Brickey. Last year's winner, Charlie Belissary, is now in third place in the men's B's. In the women's C class, Sue Hillman and Christine Heldecklang are battling for the top spot, well ahead of the rest of the field. In the C class team standings, stand-ings, the No Names are in first, 25 points ahead of the Eating Establishment. In the men's B class, Gene Gautieri has a 30 point lead over Dan Closini. In the women's B class. Jamie Merrill is on top with 115 points, 17 better than Jodie Gingrass. The B class team standings stand-ings find the Eating Establishment with an impressive im-pressive 50-point lead over the Cattle Company. The men's Vet class is a dead heat, with Rolf Sand- berg and George Ward with 1 10 points each. Close behind are Al LaMarre and Bob Logefeil. In the women's Vet class, Karen Korfanta has a 45-point lead over Marit Glenne. The Vet class team standings stand-ings find Mountain Sprouts with a 20-point lead over Adolph's. In the men's A class, Roy Moyer and Scott Siemon are only four points apart in the battle for first. In the women's A class, Janie Hooker and Heidi Francis are 1-2 with 150 and 145 points, respectively. The team leader in the A class is Alpha Beta with 155 points, 40 better than MillhausSurefoot. In ihe men's Pro class, Bill Skinner holds down first place with 150 points, 15 better bet-ter than Karl Jacobson. Last year's winner, Victor Roy, is in third with 120. In the women's Pro class, Roxanne Toly has a 20-point 20-point lead over last year's winner, Karri Hays. The Pro class team standings find the Ski Service Ser-vice Center with an insurmountable insur-mountable 75-point lead over the Ski School. For more standings, please turn to the Scoreboard section.

CallinS.LC. 1-278-5410 Marvin is one of the contenders conten-ders this weekend, the Bear River Service start will offer several advantages over starting in Samak. "By starting on the north side at 2 p.m. the dogs will stay cooler. They won't hit the south side until it starts to cool off," she explained. The early morning start on Sunday was chosen for the same reason, so the dogs won't overheat climbing up to Bald Mountain Pass. The entry fee for the Uinta- Summit 86 Classic is $30. According to Maxell, the folks at Bear River are treating it as the social event of the season. Several of the mushers have proven their mettle at the 1,100 mile Idarod dog sled race from Anchorage to Gnome, Alaska, Alas-ka, and contestants are expected to arrive from all over the Intermountain West. The favored local is Doug Willett of Park City, who ran the course in nine hours and 45 minutes last year. f fl B 1 B B B fl I I I I fl fl fl fl fl fl fl E I COUPON mm Good thru March 23, 1983.
