For the fifth time Anchorage is being sponsored as a “specialty site”. Although nobody is expected to be turned down there are special instructions for applying to this Feast site.
The 200 to 300 expected attendees will again be hosted by the Sheraton Anchorage Hotel and Spa for both housing and meeting space.
Anchorage offers the convenience, excitement and ambience of a small but cosmopolitan city nestled into the upper reaches of historic Cook Inlet. Recreational and cultural activities coexist within walking distance of each other year round. Wildlife viewing, fishing, hiking, biking and cross-country ski trails are minutes from downtown. Anchorage is a jumping off place for a myriad of wilderness and outdoor adventures, including some of the world’s most famous fishing and wildlife areas: Kenai National Moose Range, Kenai River, Prince William Sound, Denali National Park, Katmai National Park, Alaska Botanical Garden, Ben Boeke &Dempsey Anderson Ice Arenas, Lake Hood Air Harbor, Hilltop, Alyeska and Alpenglow Ski Areas, Alaska Zoo, and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge.
At this time, Church sponsored activities have not been finalized, but group activities will be arranged. An RV company will be offering discounts to Church members for pre and post Feast travel.
Registration will begin in the spring of 2018, but hotel reservations can begin on December 1, 2017.
