The annual Tour de Manure Metric Century in Sierra Valley spins into its fourth year Saturday, June 16. The tour welcomes all people looking for a bit of fun on a Saturday afternoon — not just cyclists, but also anyone who yearns for a delicious hot lunch, some foot-stomping tunes, and a browse along Sierraville’s commercial row — the Sierra Valley Feed Store and the Red Pony. This year, the finish line party will be bigger than ever.

Fishing Report for the week of 5/30/2012

“The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?” Lee Wulff

This past week I was able to take my kayak to one of our many small lakes for a morning of fishing.

Before headed out, I checked the Fish and Game web site to see if this lake was on the list of lakes still being stocked by DF&G.  It turns out it is not.

American Valley Speedway

The Saturday night races of May 19 offered an evening of family entertainment and family supporters. Families and teams came from Susanville and Reno-Sparks to the points races of DART Dwarf cars and IMCA Modified cars. American Valley Speedway’s staff were pleased to see the return of favorites like Bill Pearson. Unfortunately, he hit the wall in turn one preventing him from competing in the main event.

We saw track manager Curt Nieman come out of racing retirement to help his son Chase keep in the points race in the Dwarf class. We saw a preview of the speed and performance of Sprint cars. The California Civil War Sprint Car Series is coming June 16.
