Additional Information

Theta Chi Fraternity's snow sculpture for the 1962 King Kold Karnival. The sculpture featured a spinning Uncle Scrooge character that hit the frozen hockey pucks which were carried by a make-shift conveyor belt through the legs of a small gopher goalie. A large gopher has been ripped in half to reveal many hockey pucks. Another statue depicts one of the Beagle Boys holding a hockey stick. The winter festival known as the King Kold Karnival was a staple at UND from 1951-1968. The event usually included contests, sled races, dances, beauty pageants, and most notably large snow sculptures. A brief resurgence emerged in 1979 but was not continued.
