Our band of sailors, besides being from all over the United States, also came from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ger- many and the Philippines! We were greeted in Juneau Alaska by NA Gradu- ate Terry Vrabec (Session 186) – who hosted us to a great reception at the Coast Guard Buoy Deck lounge – com- plete with Reindeer Sausage. Then off to Skagway and a fun welcome by FBINAA graduates Ken Cox (Session 252) and Ray Leggett (Session 186). We were en- tertained at the Klondike Gold Dredge and Brew Pub. We panned for gold, had a dog sled demonstration (including holding puppies) and an amazing pre- sentation on all that goes into being an Iditarod musher. This was capped off with a delicious BBQ and a special brew made just for us – a big “Thank You” to the Alaska Chapter for the donation of that keg! continued on page 22
