Ice Classic winner results delayed

Posted: Tuesday, May 13, 2008

NENANA - A computer glitch has prevented officials with the Nenana Ice Classic from immediately seeing if there's more than one winner for this year's $303,895 jackpot.

A card had to be shipped from Utah for the laser printer. Until they got it, they couldn't check a printout of the database of 243,776 entries against the actual tickets filled out in pen or pencil by contest entrants.

Officials says workers should complete the double-checking of tickets against printouts this afternoon.

The ice went out at 10:53 p.m. May 6 when a wooden tripod floated down the Tanana River on a sheet of ice and tripped a clock on shore. So far, officials say they've found one winner - a woman from Anchorage.
