Skidegate Days 2014 begins tonight, running until Saturday, and with so much to do, there’s sure to be something for everyone.For those with a competitive edge and others who enjoy being spectators, there’s volleyball, baseball, basketball, golf, the Totem to Totem marathon (and Marafun), fish splitting, and a home run derby to keep people moving.You can bet there’ll also be islanders enjoying bingo, the poker tournament and loonie/toonie auctions.For those who like to let loose after a long day, there’ll be a teen dance featuring DJ SurfSki and an adult dance with Out of the Blue and a second appearance from DJ SurfSki.All of that Skidegate Days action is sure to build some appetites, and thankfully there’ll be food booths to meet everyone’s needs. Not to mention a pancake breakfast and salmon barbeque. And, who could forget the beer garden?For a weekend schedule, see pages 8 and 9 of this Observer. Happy Skidegate Days!
