I live and write on Lingít Aaní, and gratefully acknowledge the past, present and future caretakers of this beautiful place, the Jilkaat Kwaan and Jilkoot Kwaan.

Here’s the schedule of community events, as best as I can figure–

5:30 Boys Varsity

(The women’s choir meets at 5:15, and will sing the national anthem.)

Senior night for girls/cheer team

7:15 Girls Varsity

Tomorrow’s games are 2pm Girls JV, 3:30 Boys JV, 5:30 Girls Varsity, Senior night for boys/pep band and 7:15 Boys Varsity.

The puppet shows by Geppetto’s Junkyard in the Chilkat Center basement are tonight at 6 &8 pm and tomorrow at 4 & 7:30 pm.

And the Winter Olympics open at the Fairgrounds at 10am tomorrow, the BB gun biathlon is at 10:15, the I-Kid-Arod sled dog kid pull is at 11:00. The tea making contest is at 11:30, noon is a chili cook-off potluck, 12:15 kids hockey, and 1:00 pm the adult hockey tourney begins.

And people wonder what we do around here in the winter. Have a great weekend!
