THE SUMMER BLITZ...
We in the Intermountain Area are in the midst of our ‘Summer Blitz’... We just spent the past weekend at the Mountain Jubilee in McArthur, and now have our sights set on Burney Basin Days this upcoming weekend.

Yep, no rest for the wicked... or anyone who lives in the Area either.

If that wasn’t/isn’t enough, there was the Burney Basin Little League hosting the District 10-12 year old boys baseball tournament.

The Mountain Jubilee is growing each year, and a heck of a lot of fun - just to let those of you who’ve missed it know. The Down ‘n Dirty Mud Run was a lot of filthy fun, and all I kept thinking while watching these people plop into pools of muddy water was, “They’re either younger than I am or really stupid.” But then old men don’t count when it comes to opinions - and since everyone mucking around the Fairgrounds seemed to be having a blast, who am I to say.

The Egg Roulette was again a very fun event to be a part of this year. I managed to finish second to Michael O’Reagan, a ringer brought in from Fremont, California. That’s two years in a row egg smasher’s from the Bay Area have captured the coveted title... I think we ought to appoint a Special Prosecutor to look into this... oops, I’ve been watching waaaay too much politics on TV... sorry.

There were also Tricycle Races, Big Ball Softball Tournament and Horseshoe Tournaments to keep every sports fan happy.

Good food, good music, good fun... that about sums up the Mountain Jubilee.

Now on to Burney Basin Days, filled with bed races, parades, boxing, fireworks and more great food.

See ya around the holiday celebration this weekend!

• A short note to San Francisco Giant fans... looks like we escaped the traditional June Swoon. As of Sunday, Giants are up eight games over the you-know-who-Dodgers.... hehehehe.

Stay cool everyone - gonna be HOT this week.

Team 501 Wins Big Ball Tourney

McARTHUR - Team 501 captured the championship of the second annual Big Ball Softball Tournament at Mountain Jubilee here over the weekend.

Lauren Schneider and Dylan Harrington were named tournament MVP’s with Mari and Teo Perez named to the All-Tournament team.

The tournament is a ‘fun’ format that includes several rules not usually found in softball. Some innings found teams having to run the bases from third-to-second-to-firstto- home. The player making the final out each inning was forced to wear anything from a Tutu to a Moo-moo, plus other unique ‘rules.’

A fun time was had by all in the two-day event.

For Lucas Camp Royal was an Experience that was Rewarding and Life Changing

For many teenagers, summer camp means plenty of fun and physical activity. A chance to let off steam built up from a year of daily school grind.

Camp Royal Leadership Camp does just that, but adds a twist that for some has been a life changing experience. The camp, nestled among the mountains at the Bar 717 Ranch near Hayfork, California, takes high school juniors heading into their final year of high school and provides each ‘Camper’ a chance o learn how to be empowered and learn in a safe nurturing environment how to cope with challenges in their lives.

Teen campers are chosen and sponsored by local Rotary clubs.

Rotary district 5061 runs this Camp Royal - one of many scattered across the country. District 5061 encompasses clubs from the East Bay of the San Francisco area to the Oregon border. The Burney- Fall River Rotary Club is part of this district, and earlier this month sent three Intermountain Area teens to Camp Royal - Burney’s Hunter Mostoufi and Makayla Henderson along with Fall River’s Lucas Warnock  (pictured above with new friends) to join over 100 other teenagers.
