Tripod Raising Slideshow!

Wednesday was an exciting day for the Kuskokwim Ice Classic as the 2015 tripod — a remarkable collaboration between students, builders and volunteers — came together on the river ice and was raised to reach for the sky. The beautiful tripod was designed by Tamyka Ayuluk and Colton Ulroan, LKSD students enrolled in the STEM program, with the support of their instructor, Kevin McCalla. Their innovative idea was brought to life by Bethel craftsman Eric Whitney. In the end, it took many hands to move and raise the tripod. BCSF and The Kuskokwim Ice Classic thanks the AVCP Welding Crew from Yuut Elitnaurviat, Dennis Dishion, Zach Fansler and Gary Baldwin for their tremendous help at the Yuut Elitnaurviat shop and on the river this week. Please enjoy the slideshow below to see the tripod going up! (Photos by John Wallace, Michelle Dewitt and Paul Basile)
