In August 2012, I headed North to the Yukon to do a project through the Klondike Institute for the Art and Culture's (KIAC) Riverside Art Festival. This festival happens during Discovery Day, the territorial holiday long weekend that commemorates the 1896 Gold Rush. Also that weekend, Baseball teams from all over the North compete in the Discovery Day annual fast pitch tournament. I partnered with KIAC, the tournament, and the community radio station CFYT 106.9FM to broadcast the play-by-play of the championship game. Members of the crowd had an opportunity to call an inning of the ball game on the radio.
