ANCHORAGE — A team called the Rum Runners beat the Big Test Icicles in the snowball fighting event Sunday at the Anchorage Fur Rendezvous.
The Anchorage Daily News reports the winner qualified to represent the United States at next year’s world championship in February in Japan in the sport known as Yukigassen.
Thirty-two teams signed up for the Anchorage tournament on the Delaney Park Strip.
The seven-member teams met on a rectangular field, and each team got 270 machine-made snowballs. A team won by capturing the opponents’ flag or hitting all the opponents with snowballs.
