Talk of the Town

The community of Unalaska is a busy place to live.  Our community calendar is full of events and activities.  Talk of the Town is your source for coverage of community events and sports.  KUCB staff writes many of the stories, but we also accept contributions from community members for this section of our website.  Talk of the Town stories are often used on Flash! Unalaska, our weekly television show.  If you'd like to submit a story to Talk of the Town, contact Chrissy.

You might notice something a little different at Eagle’s View Elementary next year. The time finally came to replace the carpet, despite staff and maintenance crew’s taking great care of it. The first step in its replacement, approval by the school board, took place last year. This summer while school was out, the carpet was replaced.

PCR’s annual Summer Soccer Camp finished up last Friday with a game against the community. The Summer Soccer Camp was open to any kids in grades 6th through 12th. Practice every day went from 1 pm to 6 pm Monday through Friday. Participants met at Tutiakoff Park to play on a real grass field with full sized goals. The head coach was Carlos Tayag.

Neither rain nor fog could stop 18 teams from tearing up the tundra last weekend on Alaska’s southernmost pop-up golf course.

In addition to a nine-hole course, the annual Tundra Golf Classic featured a marshmallow long drive. The Fire Department flipped burgers, and a campfire offered warmth and s'more opportunities, so even non-serious golfers had plenty of reasons to play.

Winning Team: Kraken Squad, with a score of 50.
Honorable Mention: Make Tundra Golf Great Again . . . with a reported score of 867-5309.

Unalaskans celebrated the Fourth of July with fireworks, a parade, and a community barbecue.

The first-place award for parade floats went to the Ounalaskha Corporation and Qawalangin Tribe float, which featured a truck-sized model of a bentwood hat and a baidarka.

Unalaskans Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence (USAFV) won second place, and the island’s Girl Scout troop took home third.

Competitors in the annual duck race sent a flock of custom-painted birds down Iliuliuk Creek, where divers ensured none of the decoys reached the ocean.
