Jimmy Sends Words Of Encouragement To Jamaican Dog Sled Team

March 6th, 2008

Twenty-four year old Newton Marshall will mush the Jamaica Dog Sled team in the 210 mile Percy DeWolfe Memorial Mail Race later this month, and Jimmy Buffett has passed along his words of encouragement to the young musher:

This historic race takes place March 27-28, 2008 on the 210-mile Yukon River trail from Dawson City, Yukon Territory to Eagle, Alaska and back. This will be the first sanctioned sled dog race for Marshall and successful completion will be the first step by the Jamaica Dogsled Team to qualify him for the 2009 Yukon Quest.

Team godfather, singer and songwriter Jimmy Buffett had these words of encouragement for Marshall: “You are one brave Jamaican mon up there in the frozen North. From all the way down here in the Caribbean, I send you all my good wishes, admiration and most of all respect for what you have accomplished and what you will accomplish.”
