areas and course of play. There will be well marked, standard holes,
and fun holes. Don't be surprised by anything! Map directions and
rules will be provided by Alaska Fun, Inc. They will also provide
a hole monitor at each hole for those who cannot read maps.

shoes or waders; rain gear and warm jackets are recommended; don't
