The first contest of the 2014 Arctic Winter Games is underway.  Fairbanks and Juneau are competing to host the 2014 Arctic Winter Games and the contest will be decided by many factors, including an outpouring of welcome for the Games.   A site in Alaska is selected to host the games once every two decades – so this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invite this economic engine and cultural exchange to Fairbanks.   

The City of Fairbanks, the Borough, and a great manyInterior businesses and residents support the Games coming to Fairbanks.  Fairbanks’ proposal packet  is alomost completed but there is still time to be part of the invitation to bring the Games to Fairbanks.

Please sign this petition or write a letter by September 15 to support Fairbanks’ candidacy (email letters to nkatkin@fnsb.us). Remember that among Fairbanks’ competitive advantages is our downtown, able to meet so many visitors’ needs, tastes and interests.
