Talkeetna Bachelors are back on the market
The Talkeetna Bachelor Society announces the resurrection of its annual winter fundraiser benefiting Women and Children in Crisis. The 31st Annual Wilderness Woman Contest and the 36th Annual Bachelor Auction and Ball will take place Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 in beautiful downtown Talkeetna. Help us raise awareness of, and prevent domestic violence.
Advanced tickets for the Bachelor Auction & Ball available online at Denali Arts Council.
to a group of cold footed and warm hearted bachelors, accompanied by
the new leadership of two na´ve and enthusiastic volunteers, these
festive and uniquely Alaskan events will continue. Like the persistent
bachelors who fearlessly brave the auction block year after year, and
the rugged women who haul buckets of water down a frozen Main Street in
sub zero temperatures, these events just won’t quit. Yes, we said last
year was the last year, but bachelors exaggerate. So let’s just say
we’ve lost our lease again -- all sales are final, everything must go.
The Society cordially invites All Single Ladies, 21 years of age and older to compete in the Wilderness Woman Contest,
Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 at 12:00 Noon, or thereabout, in Talkeetna,
Alaska. Single ladies will demonstrate their proficiency at a variety
of vital skills necessary for daily living on the Last Frontier such as
water-fetching, beverage opening, and ‘ptarmigan’ shooting. At 7:00
P.M., the Bachelors Auction will take place at The Sheldon Community Arts Hangar. Doors open at 6:00. Buy a man and dance at the Bachelor Ball!
These men come from all walks of life, including mechanics, firemen,
loggers, pilots, miners, guides, businessmen, carpenters, geologists,
teachers and more. And hey, let’s not forget the unemployed. Bachelors
range in age from 21 to 70. And you won’t find these products on eBay,
they do things the old-fashioned way -- a “Male Order Catalog”, with a tongue-in-cheek biography and photo of the 2015-2016 members, is available for purchase from the Society.
Mark your calendars, book passage and lodging, and come to participate in or chronicle the 36th Annual Talkeetna Bachelor Auction on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016.
