Pre-Race Dog Trading

I allowed two teams to swap one wheel dog after being approached by a student with the request due to a personality conflict with the musher.  It was OK’d by both mushers, but objected to by the other wheel dog.

After crunching the numbers, it turned out that the deal would make the two teams more evenly matched, so by a meeting with all parties involved, I informed the reluctant fellow that he’d been traded.  In the end, he was impressed that his numbers made such a big difference to the new team.
