  • The second annual Homer Coed Adult Hockey Jamboree was held Oct. 24-26, at the Kevin Bell Arena, with 44 players from Juneau, Fairbanks, Anchorage, Kenai, Soldotna and Homer participating.

    Using the jamboree format, players registered with no idea with whom they would be playing. Organizers created teams that provided for a fun and competitive atmosphere for all involved. Skill levels ranged from beginners to highly skilled, with ages ranged from 23 to 60. 

  • They rode in strollers, biked, walked and ran. Some had their parents at their sides. Some had running buddies. Some set their own pace. Mostly, the enthusiastic crowd of girls at Saturday’s Girls on the Run 5k were smiling.
