Bandits in Alaska 

The Bandits arrived in Anchorage Tuesday night at 10:00pm and were greeted by a beautiful sunny night. It was a difficult first night trying to get to sleep with the 21 hours of daylight, but we did it!

We are off to a great start! We are 4-0 so far. Our trip has already seen its share of ups and downs though. We were brought out of a sound sleep on night number two by the sounds of the hotel's fire alarm. Needless to say, not only was it our fault, we have nicknamed a couple of players "The Wet Bandits."

Despite an interesting evening......to say the least......we have been able to move on and put our "mistake" behind us. Be sure to look here later for plenty of photos and highlights of the "incident."

Please check here daily for updates and photos. All new photos are located in the albums section.
