WELCOME TO RONDY! Dear Fur Rendezvous enthusiasts and attendees:

First off, welcome to Anchorage! Fur Rondy, as it’s known to those who live here, is our nation’s premier winter festival. The 2022 Fur Rondy marks the 87th year of this incredible festival and celebration. As Mayor of Anchorage, I am thrilled to have our city host this legendary event. Over the last year, we have seen a lot of uncharted territory for our city, but ultimately, our city became stronger and more resilient to our benefit. Now more than ever, it’s time to take a step back and reflect on all the good that has come of it. Fur Rondy is such a wonderful time for our community, so I encourage all residents to get out and enjoy it. Our streets come alive during the season of Fur Rendezvous which means it’s time for you to get out and celebrate the season. It’s time for Fur Rondy! Since Fur Rondy first began, in 1935, it has proudly represented the bustling and pioneering spirit of Alaskans. There’s nothing quite like the running of the reindeer, traditional Alaska Native blanket toss, Miners and Trapper’s, and of course the world-famous sled dog races across town. Fur Rondy has been a pillar in our community, and it will remain one of our prized and cherished community events for many generations to come. I want to thank the dedicated staff and volunteers who make Fur Rondy possible. Let’s have a safe, fun, and healthy Fur Rondy! As the saying goes, Rondyyyy…Rendezvous come on! Dave Bronson Mayor of Anchorage

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Welcome to Fur Rendezvous! Now in its 87th year, Rondy has grown from a local sporting event to a world class winter festival that attracts visitors from around our state, and around the world. Last year, the festival had to adapt and be Re-Imagined so to meet the challenges of COVID 19. Rondy 2021 had an outdoor theme and embracing community spirit through responsible participation. The community enjoyed an uplifting mental break, positive family experiences and provided an economic boost during the slow months of winter. By all accounts Anchorage enjoyed a successful Rondy with no known COVID-19 event related incidents. Many lessons were learned which has given us confidence to produce a full slate of festival events this year like Rondy 2020. We are envisioning a “plug and play” of Rondy 2020 for Rondy 2022. Fur Rendezvous’ continued success would not be possible without our community partners, members, sponsors, and volunteers. This year will be a festival for the community and an opportunity to show Alaskan perseverance through adversity. We strive to support community fun and 40+ non-profit organizations, through Fur Rendezvous, and that goal is as important as ever in a year like this. Everyone that participates is responsible for the success of Rondy not only by enjoying the events but contributing to the festival sustainability to future Rondy generations by participating in events, purchasing a signature pin, merchandise, memberships, donations or taking part in our Rondy Raffle & Silent Auctions. Fur Rondy is about having fun, hospitality, and the Alaskan Spirit. Whether it’s your first time or one of many, please consider this your personal invitation from the Board of Directors and staff to come out and celebrate Rondy! Hope to see you out there, being responsible with personal actions for the safety of all and for fun in Rondy 2022. John McCleary Executive Director, Anchorage Fur Rendezvous

KEYSTONE KOPS OF THE UNIVERSITY KIWANIS, ANCHORAGE The Keystone Kops: In the mid-1960s, the Kiwanis Club of Anchorage established the Keystone Kops in Anchorage to be the pin selling “enforcer” for the Fur Rendezvous. These law abiding volunteers built some portable jails to “lock-up” the folks who thought they could wander around our fair city without wearing a Fur Rondy pin or button. Blowing their whistles and swinging their billy clubs, they keep their eyes open for “rebels without a pin” to encourage their support of the event. During the Rondy parade, they even arrest children who aren’t wearing a pin. This is usually orchestrated by their parents who were arrested when they were young. (They also take bribes to arrest others who are “flaunting the law”.) Being a benevolent group, the Keystone Kops allow these perpetrators of the crime of not wearing a pin or button return to being upstanding citizens of Anchorage by buying one and wearing it at all Rondy events. Naturally, the Kops are the ones selling the pins. The pin selling starts around Thanksgiving when tables are staffed on weekends at various stores in town. They also have a table at the Christmas Village Bazaar held at the Dena’ina Center, sell pins at the annual Fur Rondy Melodrama, and are welcomed at many retail establishments in Anchorage and Eagle River to sell pins and add to the merriment of the Rondy activities. Individual Kops usually have a stash of pins to make it easier on the good citizens of our community! They create their PAGE 8

own pin to sell as well. This is the Kiwanis Club’s largest fundraiser. They receive a percentage of the pin and button sales for their efforts. All funds raised from the public ae returned to the community through its many community service projects. The largest of these projects is the sponsorship of Key Clubs in the Anchorage and Eagle River High Schools. These Clubs provide leadership and community service training and conduct many service projects in their school and area. Over these past 50+ years the Kops have become recognized as the face of the Fur Rondy celebration and its ambassadors during the festival. They appear in their Kop outfits (resembling a British Bobbie) with pins all over their coats and hats. They raid the television newscasts and arrest local newscasters who do not have a Fur Rondy pin and appear at many public functions to advertise the event. Visitors take their pictures and ask for directions to the events. All of this is done to promote Anchorage’s winter carnival. The Kiwanis Club of Anchorage has openings for more Kops and members. Come join them in the fun of the Fur Rendezvous and the many other community projects they work on throughout the year. For more information, or to learn how you can join the fun and become a Keystone Kop, visit: KiwanisAnchorage.org or email them at kiwanisanchorage@gmail.com.

RACE THE RONDY OPEN WORLD COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP SLED DOG RACE Begun in 1946 as part of Fur Rondy, the Open World Championship Sled Dog Race has become a cornerstone event of the festival. Mushers from all over Alaska, the nation, and the world participate for the title of fastest sprint mushing team. The race is held over three days; the fastest total time recorded wins. Countless people and entities support this race: the Municipality of Anchorage supplies police officers, snow fencing, and snow placement and removal for the street portion. The Alaskan Sled Dog & Racing Association, or ASDRA, grooms and sets snow fencing for the other 21 miles of trails. The trail follows 4th Ave east to Cordova St, where mushers turn south. At the bottom of Cordova Hill, the trail moves to the bike/ ski trails along Anchorage’s greenbelt. Here, the teams are challenged by long dark culverts under the Seward Highway and Lake Otis Parkway. The trail has two large pedestrian overpasses at Northern Lights Blvd and Tudor Rd separated by a trail through a popular dog park. Six miles into the trail, the teams hit the designated sled dog trails of Tozier Track. Fourteen miles later, the trail again heads back across the Tudor Rd pedestrian overpass to downtown Anchorage.

COLLECTOR PIN & DESIGNER ABOUT RONDY PINS AND BUTTONS.

A tradition since the early days of Rondy, the Fur Rondy collector pins are an integral part of Rondy. Representing the spirit of the festival and celebration of the ten days of Rondy, these pins are worn across the globe. Artist compete to design the official pin and local students do the same in a booster button contest. These pins become collector’s items.

2022 RONDY COLLECTOR PIN DESIGNER

JAKE GIUFFRA

Jake Giuffra is a quality analyst living in the North Bay area of California. Growing up in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range gave him an appreciation for nature and wild places. He has a deep love and respect for Alaska, and wishes to someday make it his home. His passions include road trips, hiking, and finding good mead wherever he goes. His design was inspired by the hope that soon we will rise above the troubles and enmity of recent years and come together again to enjoy everything Alaska and the United States has to offer.

2022 BOOSTER BUTTON DESIGNER

JANISHA STANCILL

I am so happy to win the 2022 Fur Rendezvous Booster Contest. I love to draw, paint, and sketch, so taking part in this contest was very exciting for me. This contest happened during Online School and was a welcomed special project for us kids! Thank you for choosing me, I really appreciate it! I am from a Military family and spent my childhood in North Carolina and Germany. Now I live here in Alaska and absolutely love it! The Scenery is breathtaking and such an inspiration for the arts! When I grow up I aspire to be an Artist and would love to be published here in Anchorage as well! Other than art I also enjoy playing my viola, reading and spending time with my friends and family. Thank you again for your recognition. It truly is an honor for me! PAGE 51
