The Alaska Smokejumpers will be celebrating our 50th year on Friday, June 5; and Saturday, June 6, 2009.

Activities tentatively scheduled include a base Open House and an outdoor party aka Pig Party. Saturday will include individual activities of your choice: Fairbanks tours, visiting with your Bros, etc, with a banquet on Saturday night.

We are currently looking for the e-mail addresses and/or contact information for nearly half of our group. Please visit to see what information we currently have and pass along any updates so we can keep people posted via email. The log-in password is aksmj.

Please respond to by January 18th to tell us if you are planning on attending or not and the number of people in your group, and with any updated contact information for yourself or others. In upcoming weeks we will e-mail everyone on our list with a link to a website that will keep you updated on specifics. We will also put that link on the crew list, linked above.

We hope to hear from you soon!
