It's been said that long, long ago a few people in Alaska were once intrigued with flyball.  There was an early version of a flyball box, one having a single foot pedal and tin can to hold and pitch the ball.  Later, a newer version with a solitary hole and carpeted front was tried.
Sadly, nearly a decade went by and  flyball in Alaska never seemed to take-off nor did it become an active dog sport.  
In 2004 the winds of change blew upon "The Last Frontier" and there appeared two dogs who knew the game well.

In the midst of an icy lair, with authority and raised sticks, the ACES hockey team declared "let there be flyball!" it was...the very first Alaska flyball demo.  

Indy, Erin, Timber and Linda fulfilled the command in April, 2004 with a 2-dog flyball extravaganza presented to Anchorage, Alaska ACES hockey fans!

See for yourself as Bob, the ACES announcer tries his best to intimidate the athletes while Timber and Indy steal the show and WOW! the crowd...

   Erin Announcing     Bob the Announcer

   Timber waiting     Indy being patient

   Timber up close     Indy down the lane

   Linda saying goodbye

About six months later the first flyball club in Alaska was formed.  In January 2005, Timber and Indy shared their encore invitation from the ACES Hockey Team and performed a 4-dog demo together with Willoughby and Colby.

(updated 8/18/2013. We just discovered, on, the first actual flyball club in Alaska was Northern Explosion club #190 NAFA in 1999. There were no tournaments and no points earned. Dogs were: German Shepherd Dog, Airedale, four Border Collies and a Pomeranian.  Approaching the 10 year mark in Alaska there are now the following clubs: Alaska Dogs Gone Wild, Glacier Shakers (originally Borders Around Alaska), Pawsitive Synergy and Anchorage Anarchy. All of these clubs are located in Anchorage. Another club, Juneau Flyball, formed in 2011 but never competed.)
