The next series of pictures we publish will be in association with the 2017 Iceworm Tail Clues, since we do LOVE history!
The second clue was: “Those two old dudes wanted to have a mid-winter party for Cordova like Anchorage’s Fur Rendezvous. A crab feed, bowling tournament, beard contest and a ski race.”
During the first Iceworm Festival, the Elks Lodge sponsored a crab feed which was included in the ticket price of $15 for a round trip flight from Anchorage to Cordova! The bowling tournament was a huge hit and teams came from outside Cordova to participate.
This clue could have led you close to the Elks Lodge (Wells Fargo building), the Mt. Eyak Ski Area or the alleyways between the Prince William Motel and Nichols Front Door Store where the bowling alley used to be located. Again, it would have been impressive if you had found the tail with the first and second clue!
