It's been along time sense Alaska has had a pond to race at without sharing it with the public. Last summer I spent some time taken to private land owners and found a gem in the rough a 3 stage pond system that can run two race tracks. We are very excited to organize a club and get this baby going to reopen NAMBA district 12.

We have been on the water as early as April 16th in the rain and as late as Oct. 31st and snowing with ice 5 foot off the banks. But can't do many racing in those conditions.
