This is a five-card poker run on the water from Canyon Dam Boat Launch to Plumas Pines Resort along the southwest shore of the 8th largest reservoir in California. It’s 10 miles roundtrip!

So what's a Poker Run? Well along the route, Paddlers will make 5 shore stops to pick up 5 poker cards and from those cards make the best poker hand possible. Prizes will be given to the two entrants with the two best poker hands presented at the finish line.

Bring your own vessel, safety equipment, sun protection, and liquids to the starting/finish line at the Canyon Dam Boat launch (where?). Equipment is also for rent in our area.

Grebe Festival
Lake Almanor is the place to be the weekend of August 18th through 20th as we celebrate the extraordinary “dancing” grebes with our second annual Grebe Festival centered in Chester, CA.   Western and Clark’s Grebes (Aechmophorus occidentalis and A. clarkii) nest on Lake Almanor which is considered an Important Bird Area by National Audubon and which has grown in its importance as a breeding site for these grebes in recent years as drought has caused loss of nesting habitat elsewhere.  Late August is a great time to view the grebes as they are still nesting on the lake in colonies, racing across the water in their incredible “rushing” displays, and when some babies are hatching and climbing aboard their parents’ backs.

Kayak and pontoon fieldtrips will allow festival-goers to get an up-close (but not too close!) look at nesting grebes.  A variety of other fieldtrips around the Lake Almanor basin and Lassen National Park will be sure to satisfy!  For more information, please visit www.plumasaudubon.org/grebe-festival.

08-26-20173rd Annual Courage Triathlon
Come join us for the 3rd Annual Courage Triathlon!  100% of the proceeds from this event go to the non-profit 501 (3) C organization COURAGE WORLDWIDE, who built a home for children right here in California rescued from sex trafficking.
After learning of the staggering lack of services for the victims of human trafficking right here in America, I vowed to do something.  So Joanne Vice and I created the COURAGE TRIATHLON to help bring awareness and funds to partner with COURAGE WORLDWIDE.  Our vision became that of many in the community of both Lassen and Plumas County.
Come run so they do not have to.  August 26, 2017 at the Plumas Pines Resort, Lake Almanor California.  You can participate in teams of three or individually.  It is a 2.8 mile run, 7.1 bike and a 4.1 mile kayak, all along the stunning shores of Lake Almanor.  If you feel that participating is not possible for you, register to volunteer or sponsor a team!  Everyone can DO SOMETHING to end the crime of human trafficking. Register for both at couragerun/triathlon.org or Visit www.courageworldwide.org and our Facebook page: Courage Triathlon, Lake Almanor, Ca for information, registration and to view over 3,000 pictures.
visit some local bussinesses and say hello to the proud sponsers of the Courage Triathlon,  Plumas Pines Resort, Lake Almanor Ca,  St. Bernard Lodge, Mill Creek Ca, Rusty Chandelier, Chester Ca, Chester Holiday Market, Chester Ca, Susanville IGA, Susanville Ca, Susan River Fire Department, Susanville Ca, California Corrections Supervisor Organization, Plumas Bank in Susanville, Ca, FWA Fire Water Supply, Redding Ca, High Sierra Fire, Janesville, Ca and Chester Plumas Bank.
We look forward to seeing you there.  Together we can end human trafficking! Come RUN SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO!
