Officials of the International Committee of the Arctic Winter Games (AWG) will visit Juneau next month to make an assessment of Juneau's suitability to host the 2006 Arctic Winter Games. The games are held every two years and the 2004 event will be held at Wood Buffalo, Canada. Juneau is competing with Kenai and Fairbanks for the honor of playing host when it is Alaska's turn to welcome some 1,600 competitors to our state from other northern regions such as Greenland, Russia and Canada.
