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.

   Cade Terada and Brian Conwell, traveled along with 19 other youth from across the state to Chugiak, Alaska to attend an Alaska Youth for Environmental Action (AYEA) summit.


The Museum of the Aleutians has officially reopened after a scandal closed the space for nearly a year.

Last week, new Executive Director Dr. Neal Hitch announced the museum has set regular hours for the first time since last fall, when the former director resigned after items from the collection were found in her home.

In his first month on the job, Hitch has reopened the museum gradually — allowing visitors during cruise ship and ferry stops, even though the building's technically been closed.

The Unalaska Raiders cross country team was on the road one last time this past weekend before their final home race of the season on September 17th at Kelty Field starting at 10:15am. They had yet another strong showing at the Seward Invitational at Seward High School and the New Balance 3K Flight Race at Russian Jack Golf Course in Anchorage. None of the Raider runners have run either course before so it was a good experience learning about race strategies and some new courses around the state.
