The tripod is still standing on the Tanana River, and we are nearing a record late breakup in the 97 year old Nenana Ice Classic. 20 May 1964 at 11:24am is the current date of the latest breakup. Considering that we are going to see low temps in the teens the next couple of nights, it seems like breaking the record is highly likely.
The pot this year for the Classic is $318,500 for the person(s) who picked the correct date & time of the ice going out.
