Kelly Probst has called Eagle Harbor home for nearly 20 years. Originally from Milwaukee, she vacationed every summer in Eagle Harbor which is where she met her husband Rich. Rich and Kelly have been married for 17 years and have three children, Richard, Taylor, and Kate, all of whom have grown up around the CopperDog.
Kelly first got involved with Copperdog 150 during its second year. Copperdog changed its path, and Eagle Harbor became check point #1 on Friday night. Kelly volunteered to be a dog handler that year and then every year after. You are more likely to recognize her as the face who greeted you on Saturday morning at the Eagle Harbor Inn as the mushers, teams, volunteers and race directors made their way in for coffee, food, and coffee.
2018 Copperdog offered a different opportunity as Kelly took up the Eagle Harbor Check Point Coordinator position. As Check Point Coordinator Kelly was approached by Doug Harrer to consider a position on the CopperDog board, which she accepted in the fall of 2019. As a new CD Board Member and EH Check Point Coordinator, Kelly is excited to get to know the CD family and the art of dog racing
