The Nenana Ice Classic tripod sits April 15 on the Tanana River in Nenana. According to Ice Classic officials, the tripod tipped at 10:53 p.m. Tuesday. Contestants in the Nenana Ice Classic pay $2.50 a ticket to guess the exact date and time the ice on the Tanana River will break up. This year's jackpot is $303,895. Ice Classic Manager Cherrie Forness said contest officials are still trying to determine how many winners there are. Once that is known, Forness said those people will be contacted with the good news.
