EDDIE BAUER: DEEDEE JONROWE AIMS ONE NOTCH HIGHER IN 1992 IDITAROD

EDDIE BAUER: DEEDEE JONROWE AIMS ONE NOTCH HIGHER IN 1992 IDITAROD
 SEATTLE, Feb. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Eddie Bauer:
 After finishing second in Europe's Alpirod earlier this month, veteran musher DeeDee Jonrowe is setting her sights on first place as she fine tunes her team for her 10th running of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
 In running her first Alpirod, DeeDee built momentum for the start of the Iditarod on Feb. 29. DeeDee's strong performance in the European race, in which she recorded the fastest time through the Alps, earned her the 1992 Alpirod Rookie of the Year award.
 To challenge for victory in the Iditarod, DeeDee must keep her team moving, no matter how rough the terrain or bad weather. That's why Eddie Bauer again has custom designed a sledsuit to protect her from winter's worst all along the trail.
 Eddie Bauer designed DeeDee's sledsuit to meet the challenge of the Iditarod, beginning with a shell of waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex(TM). A unique blend of insulation provides maximum yet light-weight protection from cold weather. And it's ventilated for comfort with specially designed zippers.
 But even with the best protection possible, DeeDee still balances intense competitive spirit with exceptional treatment of her dogs. Recently honored with the Alpirod's Best Cared For Team award, DeeDee also received the Leonard Sepalla Humanitarian Award for having the best-cared-for team in last year's Iditarod.
 Eddie Bauer congratulates DeeDee and all Iditarod mushers -- and all men and women who challenge the outdoors.
 And for all who seek outdoor adventure, no matter how rugged the conditions, Eddie Bauer continues to apply the lessons it learns from expedition outfitting to give all its customers proven cold-weather protection, through the company's mail order catalogs and 200-plus stores in the United States and Canada.
 VIEWING
 One of the customized Eddie Bauer sledsuits worn by DeeDee can be viewed at the Eddie Bauer store, located at Fifth and Union, in downtown Seattle, from Feb. 26 to March 11, along with a video that tells the exciting story of DeeDee on the Iditarod Trail in 1991.
