INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; With the crisp fall air at night Tahoe is definitely feeling fall like. Fall begins officially according to the calendar on Saturday and would be a great day to celebrate Tahoe style. We have so much to do at this time of the year and locals can partake of the many tourist attractions without leaving Tahoe.
I know that it is Street Vibrations weekend but even that will be over with soon. Be sure to take a trip around the new and#8220;gatewayand#8221; into Incline Village and check out the beautiful roundabout. What a nice way to welcome visitors to our village. Thanks Don Kanare, other members of the team and all that supported this project.
The annual Incline Elementary School Jog-a-thon is Friday and always a good way to support our local schools. The annual event is to keep physical education in the school program.

The local bowlers that participated in the BVL Tournament last weekend had a great time and congratulations to Mike Forstrom who rolled the high tournament game with a 266.
