Volunteers, sponsor help make annual sno-cross race a success
The Kenai Peninsula Racing Lions hosted the Second Annual Peninsula Winter Games Sno-Cross Race on Feb. 1 and look forward to hosting a third annual sno-cross next year. It was also the first state race held in the newly formed state circuit, which includes Valdez, Fairbanks and Anchorage.
We had more than 500 spectators and 110 racers at the track on Saturday. We would like to say thank you to everyone who came out and made the race such a success. We also would like to thank the following volunteers and sponsors who made it possible to hold the race, without them we couldn't have done it! Thanks to Davis Block, Craig Taylor, Dick's Drywall, Kenai Auto, Mountain Madness, River & Sea Marine, A-1 Polaris, Arctic Motor Sports, WJS Excavating, Nikiski EMTs, Arctic Young Marines, Peggy Rogers, George Woods, Swinton Kraft, Taft Davis, Lane Giesler, Regina Daniels, Scott Davis, Rod Peterkin, Gina Joyce, Ray Debardelaben, Wendy Hudson, Crystal Gimple, Corryn Hill, Charlie Simmons, Jesse Simmons, Troy Adams, Dan Jensen, Les Crane, Misty Butcher, and anyone else who I may have missed. We couldn't have done it without you!
Spring is fast approaching and we are gearing up for a successful moto-cross and circle track season. Please check our Web site at kprl.org for upcoming events and schedule information.

Souper Bowl of Caring helps hungry neighbors on peninsula
Everyone was a winner in the 2003 Souper Bowl Day of Caring. On behalf of those served by the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank, I would like to offer a huge thank you to all the churches, businesses and individuals that participated in the Jan. 26 Souper Bowl of Caring!
As part of a nationwide effort to help feed the hungry, Souper Bowl of Caring is a faith-based effort whereby church congregations are asked to bring an extra dollar to church on Super Bowl Sunday to donate to a local charity for hunger relief.
But participation in the Souper Bowl of Caring isn't limited. We would like to extend a super thanks to all the following for their participation in this wonderful fundraising event: BJ's, Funny River Community Church, Goodnight Inn, The Hut, Kenai Elks Lodge No. 2425, Kenai United Methodist Church, The Moose Lodge, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, Petro Express, The Place, Riverside Inn, Soldotna United Methodist Church and Upper Room Ministries. If there are other participants we are unaware of, please accept our sincere thank you, too!
Regardless of which football team won the Super Bowl, the real winners in the Souper Bowl of Caring were our needy neighbors who will benefit from the generous donations that came from a compassionate community. Thank you all for caring!
