I don't know if this was done on purpose or not but nonetheless it's a mistake.

Chatanika days is taking place on this scheduled weekend and while I would love to attend the SnoRondy, it doesn't have an icecube's shot in *beep*.

I'm also assuming that I'm not the only person to feel this way.

No your not.

This is our 9th year of the Rondy and every weekend in March has something going on. It's either Chatanika Days, Tired Iron, Tripod in Nenana, etc. It has gotten so all we can do is try and make it when we can. We have in the past tried to change the date so it doesn't conflict with other events, then the other events change their dates for whatever reason. Just how it is. The only way to solve this would be to get everyone from every March event together and all agree to different dates, ain't going to happen cause folks will want to change their dates as the weather does.

We've ran into this before and we'll still gets hundreds of folks at the SnoRondy.
