INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — I know our local businesses would like to see the hustle and bustle of summer continue right into ski season but it is nice to go around town and catch up with locals who have been hiding out most of the summer.
Don’t forget that our local bowlers will be down in Gardnerville starting at 11 a.m. Sunday at Silver Strike Lanes for the Bowlers for Veterans tournament. Lots of contests and spectators are welcome to cheer during this 9-pin no tap event.
It is definitely the end of summer when Tahoe SAFE Alliance and Project MANA announce the theme for the annual Chocolate, Wine and Roses festival. The theme this year is One Night in Havana. Save the date and get tickets early for this event held on Saturday, Nov. 5. For information or to purchase tickets visit www.tahoesafealliance.org.
Be sure to make Incline’s favorite event for dog owners, the Dog Days of Fall, on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Burnt Cedar Pool. The pool is already closed for the season but the splashing and fun never ends with all the four-legged swimmers. For information contact the Recreation Center at 775-832-1300.
Another bowling event is the annual Tahoe Family Solutions Bowlathon from noon-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at Bowl Incline. For information or to sign up call Amy at 775-298-0044. Individuals as well as teams can sign up.
