Fall colors make for spectacular local fishing outings

A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.

—Author unknown

That quote at the top of the column … I know I probably use it too often. But there is just so much truth to that statement that it bears repeating over and over again.

Fishing season is winding down. But fortunately around here it goes out with a bang. Trout tend to “binge feed” in preparation for the cold winter months. Add a comment

11th Annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament

On Wed., Oct. 22, 64 Graeagle men and women teed it up (from strange places, aiming in peculiar directions) for the annual Kinkley Klassic Cross Country Golf Tournament — a four-person team scramble. Each autumn, Graeagle Men’s Golf Association member Gary Kinkley and his band of zany assistants turn Graeagle Meadows Golf Course on its ear. We teed off from the first tee box, aiming for the second green, over a pond, making it a par 3, instead of its usual long par 4. On some holes, we had to watch for cross traffic, hitting across our “fairway.” One hole was played backward to a green beyond the normal tee box, making it a par 6. A meeting and detailed written instructions were required to negotiate the cross country course.

Three big wins at last weekend’s rodeo at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds put the Feather River College men’s and women’s teams to the top of the standings in the West Coast Region.

The FRC men’s team placed first both days, while the women’s team took second under University of Nevada Las Vegas on Friday and came in first Saturday.

Every season has its sports; the changing colors of an approaching winter in Plumas County generally (excluding skiers and their mountain-bound schussing) means taking the action indoors as the temperatures drop, the snow falls and the hoop dreams of Feather River College basketball players grow in intensity.

The men’s program at FRC has been led by head coach Randy Rick since 1999. In that first year he put together a 25-5 record and brought home the first Golden Valley Conference championship for the previously floundering teams.

Under Rick’s tutelage FRC has won six Golden Valley Conference championships and has turned out more Division 1 players than any team in the conference. Four former Eagles currently play professionally overseas internationally. Seven former players are now high school basketball head coaches while one player was drafted by the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the community college level. Add a comment
