Mascot Mania – March

Oostburg “Flying Dutchmen” (WI) – Settled by Dutch immigrants, the town is named for a city in the Netherlands. Oostburg still has many reminders of its early settlers, including miniature windmills and tulip gardens.




Barrow “Whalers” (AK) – The northernmost community in North America, Barrow is located on the coast of the Chukchi Sea. The original Inupiat inhabitants depended on subsistence marine mammal hunting (including beluga and bowhead whales) supplemented by inland hunting and fishing. As grass won’t grow on the tundra, Barrow plays football on a bright blue artificial turf field located just a few yards from the sea.
