that the  Bristol Bay  Native Association  thought that  a salmon

REPRESENTATIVE KOHRING  inquired as to  the amount of  money that                                                               
would be raised from this activity.                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
MR. GRUSSENDORF informed  everyone that a committee  is being put                                                               
together.  At  this point, the price of the  tickets haven't even                                                               
been determined.   However, there will be  no administrative fees                                                               
to the corporation  that runs the classic.   Mr. Grussendorf said                                                               
that the  current thought  is to mirror  the Nenana  Ice Classic.                                                               
In further  response to  Representative Kohring,  Mr. Grussendorf                                                               
specified  that  the  money  raised  will  be  used  for  college                                                               
scholarships.                                                                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
REPRESENTATIVE KOHRING remarked that  it is interesting that such                                                               
[events]  would  require   authorization  from  the  legislature.                                                               
Although   he   realized   that  state   statute   requires   the                                                               
legislature's  authorization,  he  felt  that it  would  be  more                                                               
appropriate  to  do   this  based  on  a  local   decision.    In                                                               
conclusion,  Representative Kohring  said that  he believes  it's                                                               
great that  this money is  being raised locally versus  coming to
