Last weekend, the Unalaska Student Government traveled to Wasilla for the Alaska Association of Student Government (AASG) Fall Conference. This event is the largest gathering of student governments in the state, with over 530 delegates in attendance. A variety of student leaders came from Noorvik, Sand Point, East Anchorage, Juneau-Douglas and many more towns and cities. For the conference, the Menard Sports Center, which is an ice rink, was converted into a convention hall. Now we can say yes when people from the lower 48 ask if we have our events in igloos.

KUCB's annual One Day Radio Pledge Drive took place on Friday, Oct. 14, and it was a huge success. This year, our goal was $20,000, and we beat that number by a big margin. At the close of our drive, we raised a total of $26,000 — more money than any fundraiser in KUCB history.

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.
