Ice Classic 2017 Application Now Available


Download the Application!

The 2017 Kuskokwim Ice Classic is providing an opportunity for youth-serving groups in Bethel and in Y-K Delta area villages to sell tickets for this year’s Ice Classic event. Groups selected to participate AND which sell the minimum number of required tickets will receive a portion of the Ice Classic earnings. Only groups that sell the required number of tickets will be considered “beneficiary groups” which will receive funds from the Ice Classic. An explanation of this distribution formula is on page 3. The deadline for groups to apply to sell tickets is November 30, 2016 at 5 pm. Groups will be selected in December.


  • Your group’s primary goal must be to provide activities for youth.
  • You must name 2 adults who can be a primary and secondary point of contact between January and May. One of the adults must be able to attend a ticket sales strategy planning meeting. We will have tickets available for groups in December if groups want them early, but there will be minimal sales through March & the bulk of sales will occur in April.
  • Bethel-based groups must sell a minimum of 100 books of tickets (one book contains 5 tickets). Village-based groups must sell a minimum of 50 books of tickets*(village groups: see page 3). Groups that sell the required minimum number of tickets will receive a portion of the Ice Classic revenue (see page 3 for distribution formula explanation).

2016 Break Up Bash Photos

The weather was amazing, the hotdogs were aplenty, and the music and dancing kept the Bethel waterfront hopping this afternoon as we all celebrated the beginning of the summer season. It seems odd to think summer in April, but here it is and we will take it. Have a safe time on the water and remember to always wear your Personal Flotation Device (PFD)!

Here are the photos of the fun afternoon and evening

And the Tripod Came Down!

If a tree falls in the forest, does it make any noise? If the Tripod falls down and no one is around does IT make any noise? Who knows, but after an exciting day on the Kuskokwim, the tripod is down, but hopes are still high for those that have tickets for the next day or so. Although the tripod moved and fell down, the clock did not trip. It has to move about 50 more yards for an official “Trip” of the clock. Here are photos from an exciting day on the Bethel Waterfront:
