Elly Mariana Lugo Navarro New Chairperson for the Youth Committee

IFSS Executive Board has appointed Elly Mariana Lugo Navarro to the position of Chairperson for the Youth Committee.
Elly is from Mexico, and she applied because her interest in this position is to enrich the sport in every way. She speaks Spanish and English. She also competes in Canicross.

IFSS welcome Elly to the family of volunteers that helps IFSS to work towards the future of the sport.
At the same time, IFSS need more volunteers to fill some of the empty positions in the committees. We need more dedicated volunteers to be able to have the teams that will work together to fulfill the committees’ goals.
Here are the needs on these committees:
Youth Committee – 2 members
Inclusive Global Access Committee – 1 member
Nordic Breed Committee – 1 member
Membership Committee – 1 member
If you want to apply for one of these positions or know someone that would fit perfectly for the job, send an email to VP Development Hernan Maquieira at development@sleddogsport.net or hernan.maquieira@sleddogsport.net

Vaccination requirements for the World Championships and World Masters Dryland 2023, Ólvega, Spain
Required vaccinations for all dogs, including dogs not racing: Rabies, Distemper, Leptospirosis, Adenovirus-2 (Hepatitis and tracheo-bronchitis), Parvovirus and "Kennel cough" (Parainfluenza and Bordetella bronchiseptica).
All vaccines must have been administered more than 21 days before the official day of the opening of the stake-out (NOT the day when the dog starts to race!) Validity of vaccinations as stated in the dog´s passport. To evaluate the validity of vaccinations ONLY the ”dog passport” or the ”dog vaccination booklet” will be taken in consideration. These documents must show for each vaccination the date of injection with the stamp and the signature of the veterinary who did it.
Note 1) Kennel cough vaccinations have to protect against BOTH Parainfluenza AND Bordetella bronchiseptica (as with INTRANASAL or INJECTABLE vaccines). Only if the dog is protected with an injectable vaccine against Parainfluenza given no longer than 1 (one) year before (as in DHPPi vaccine), then the ORAL vaccine for Bordetella bronchiseptica is accepted.

Yours sincerely
