Attention Radio Listeners! It's time to open your wallets and support KUCB Radio during our annual pledge drive. 

As you know, KUCB has lost significant funding from the State of Alaska this year, and that means we need local support more than ever.  We also spent our limited funds replacing the 91.1 transmitter in August, and we're hoping that those of you who love local KSKA service will give a little extra this year.  Broadcast of KSKA FM 91.1 here in Unalaska is a popular second service that we provide.

Last Friday, the Unalaska Raider Swim Team converged on the newly renovated Aquatics Center for their last home swim meet of the season. It was stormy outside, but a great day for swimming on the inside. They started their warm ups at 5 and the meet began at 6 with introductions by Coach D. This swim meet was senior night, so after all of the other swimmers had their names called, it was time for the seniors to make their entrance.

The annual Blueberry Bash was Sunday, September 25th in the UCSD small gym. This year the event was hosted by Jolene Longo and was a fundraiser for the UCSD wrestling team. 

There were dozens of delectable blueberry dishes submitted, both savory and sweet, but a few stood out to the twelve judges as blue-ribbon worthy. After an hour of tasting, the judges made their decisions.

Jams, Jellies and Syrups:

Last Sunday the PCR had its third annual International Friendship Cup at Tutiakoff Field. The International Friendship Cup is an annual soccer game that encourages goodwill between all members of the community. There were games for the younger age groups starting at 11:00 am.

Last weekend was busy for the athletes of Unalaska!

Starting on a crisp, clear Saturday morning at 10:15am in Kelty Park, the Raiders invited the community out for the Tustumena Invite. It was the final qualifying race before the State Championships on October 1st.

Coach Gibson began the morning by recognizing the accomplishments of the two seniors on the team this year, Taylor Holman and Anthony Lopez.
