Jonrowe Scratches in Rainy Pass
by Chas St.George
IDITAROD XXXV MUSHER Dee Dee Jonrowe, (Bib #27) made the decision to scratch at 6 pm last night, (March 05, 2007) at Rainy Pass Checkpoint on Puntilla Lake in the Alaska Range. The Willow musher, who was running her 25th Iditarod, scratched due to injuries she incurred after taking a fall just a few miles before she reached the Rainy Pass Checkpoint. According to officials at the checkpoint Jonrowe broke her little finger and may have incurred more damage to her hand. After careful consideration, she decided that it was best to scratch.
