Every year the ice shifts and they have to move the Geographical pole marker back towards the center of the continent 35 feet. This is also when the winter site manager unveils the new pole marker that was made by the winter over machinist of the past winter.
We all stood in a big circle and passed the flag around from the old location to the new location.
The old pole marker that was made two winters ago. It will now go into a locked glass case with all of the other past pole markers located in the hallway inside the station.
