Games provide reason to get out, enjoy winter

Posted: Friday, February 01, 2002

Looking for something to do this weekend?

Look no further than the Peninsula Winter Games.

There's something for every member of the family: ice sculpting, a scavenger hunt, a dog weight pull, a snowshoe softball tournament, snowboarding competition, horse sleigh rides, a kids' carnival, a Monopoly tournament, a bowling tournament, kick sled racing, sled dog racing, a Native Youth Olympics demonstration -- and much more.

The bulk of the events happen at the Soldotna Sports Center, but there are things going on all over the central peninsula that are part of the games.

A complete schedule can be found on page A-13 of today's paper. Check it out.

The games keep getting bigger and better, thanks to a dedicated group of organizers. This weekend is the time to get out of the house and enjoy. The games are proof winter really can be fun.
