Ice Classic officials say ice could go out any day

Posted: Monday, April 28, 2003

FAIRBANKS (AP) The ice on the Tanana River could go out this week, said organizers of the Nenana Ice Classic.

Warm weather is rotting the ice beneath the wooden tripod that signals the time of break-up in Alaska's richest guessing game.

Ice on the nearby Nenana River went out Saturday. On the Tanana there is open water three-quarters of a mile away from the tripod in both directions.

Last year, six winners shared a $304,000 jackpot after they picked the winning time of 9:27 p.m. May 7.

Money from Ice Classic ticket sales goes to civic organizations, scholarships and other causes in the city after the jackpot and expenses are paid out.
