Stefan Donker is 33 years old and lives in Veldhoven. I have been active in sled dog sport since I was 11 years old. Initially as Handler of Hans Mast's team. I walked there for years to learn the tricks of the trade. In between my studies I was a Handler with Eddy Streeper in America to learn more there as well. About 12 years ago Ilse and I started the team Tartok Speed of Udaschka. Currently our kennel consists of 13 dogs, the majority of which are self-bred. We have specialized in open competitions and we do that with the so-called Hounds.
The chairman falls under the general meeting of members. Under the chairman is PR and the sponsor committee.
Purpose: to lead and manage the association and the general management of the association.
