A note on James J Hill Dachshund Races

At the Dachshund races
It is early, but a lot of people are inquiring about the September 6th James J Hill Weiner Dog Races. Go to the Wayzata Chamber of Commerce web site - just google it - then look it up in their James J. Hill Day page. Entry form, categories, races and past weiners are all there.
Dog lovers will agree - this is a very popular and fun event. The people are just as much fun as the dogs. Get there early with a chair or blanket. You'll be competing for a view.
