Welcome to PLAAY!  We have been busy and we are excited about the planning and development phase for PLAAY 2018!

We are excited to announce that David Marsh will be our VIP and Keynote speaker for PLAAY Summit 2018. David and his wife Kristin will make their first visit to Alaska on Feb 21st and will start the next morning to cheer for the kids on PLAAY Day Feb 22nd.
