The PCR coordinated a Labor Day Softball Tournament this year that was held at Kelty Field over the first three days of September.

PCR employees Cynthia Drayton and Carlos Tayag coordinated the event and Tayag said it has been a few years since Unalaska has seen a summer softball tournament.  “This year was well attended, both in terms of participants and spectators,” Tayag said. He added that Mayor Kelty was pleased to see a tournament resurgence and offered Tayag and his crew gratitude for “bringing softball back to the island.”
