EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT
Arctic Man race director Howard Thies says to expect the usual forms of entertainment, Alaska Motor Mushers Club races, drags, live music, food, beer tent – all the things that make Arctic Man just that much more fun.
BAR TENT AND SHUTTLE BUS
As a free service, Arctic Man guests can be transported from the bar tent back to their camp on a shuttle. The shuttle is for anyone who has been drinking. So hop on board and tip the driver. After all, he or she is putting up with a rowdy bunch.
If you plan on drinking, walk – don’t ride – to the bar. Plan to use the shuttle, and watch out for friends and family. As Thies said, “I’m trying to make this a family event, not a drunken party.”
The Roundup Steak House will be back to serve your beverages and spirits. There will be games in the bar all weekend, including Corn Hole, Connect Four, Right Center Left and more. Come play and try to win prizes. Also this year is live music from Oregon’s Tony Lundervold, a country singer whose music will liven the dance floor. He performs Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.
CELL PHONE COVERAGE
Arctic Man thanks AT&T for the cell phone service they’ve pro- vided for the past few years. 4G service will again be available.
Do you consider yourself a king of Arctic Man? Then you de- serve a proper throne. If you don’t want everyone messing up your RV toilet or if you don’t think it will function properly in the ex- treme cold, call (907) 452-1480 to secure your very own outhouse.
Fires are permitted in your camp area. Arctic Man has not se- cured a vendor as of yet for purchasing at the compound so be sure to check their website and plan accordingly.
Rules of the camp include no burning of pallets (nails have been
a problem in the past) and no throwing glass in the fires. And, as weird as it is to write these words – feel free to bring a couch but do NOT leave it behind, attempt to burn it or dump it in the Dumpsters.
ARCTIC MAN SHOWERS
This Year we will have Showers at the event! They are located on the small pad on the way to tent headquarters. Showers are $15 per person, or buy a punch card that is good for three showers for $30.
Disposable towels, shampoo and soap are provided.
Sign up from 8-10 a.m. in the Beer Tent for the April 12 Pea
Pod Run from Summit Lake to Maclaren River Lodge. There you’ll receive further instructions and card drawings. The route will leave the Beer Tent and go to the Richardson Highway Monument, then follow the west side of Summit Lake to Mile 7 on the Denali High- way and out to Maclaren River Lodge. This is an approximately
50 mile one-way ride. Entry fee for card hand is $25 and includes homemade chili once you get to the lodge.
DUSTY LITTLE Heli Alaska will take you for a ride into the Hoodoos to get a look at
the race — and the wilderness — from the sky.
HELI ALASKA HELICOPTER RIDES
Heli Alaska is coming back to Arctic Man to give spectacular ride in which you can “experience the Hoodoos from the air. This is a trip that you will remember forever. They are located on the small 600 pad after the entrance.
Do not miss this chance to go fast in the air and go home with a smile!
