You have some options for ringing in the new year, other than heading out to a bar or a club. The 30th annual Year-to-Year Run is set to start at 11:50 pm Saturday night, a family-friendly event being put on by Longview Parks and Youth and Family Link. The event starts and finishes at the Youth and Family Link building at 907 Douglas in Longview. They’ll actually get things started off at 9 pm Saturday night, with a three-on-three basketball tournament, then the 5-K fun run and walk will start at 11:50. You can register at the building, starting at 9 pm, or you can go to the Cowlitz Valley Runners website to pre-register.
Over at the Three Rivers Mall in Kelso, “Game On” is continuing a two-day Modern Warfare 3 tournament, going on during mall hours today. This tournament is a “free-for-all” format; the entry fee is $20, with prizes awarded for first, second and third places. Tomorrow night, they’ll be hosting an alcohol-free New Year’s Eve party at Game On, a “lock down” for teens that will feature all-night gaming, pizza, snacks, giveaways and mini-tournaments. Call Game On at 360-232-8891 for additional details.
