Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 5C James Wilson Sports Editor sports@plu masnews,com The Plumas-Sierra Bicycle Club is offering membership for 2014, and now would be the best time to make the membership most worthwhile. Memberships begun now will last all of 2014. Bike enthusiasts in Plumas, Lassen and Sierra counties can benefit greatly from membership• For instance, a number of bicycle shops offer discounts of no less than 10 percent to members. Shops include Howling Dogs Bike and Ski in Graeagle, Bicycle Bananas in Susanville and Sierra Cyclesmith in Reno. '"The main thing new members will get is a bunch of new friends," said club president Len Fernandes. "One of the cool things is misery loves company• The other day I did a ride out in Sierra Valley, arid the wind was howling and the weather was horrible• I wouldn't have been out there just by myself." The club organizes many group rides throughout the year. In 2013, for example, the club challenged its members to get in 2,013 miles. Most of its members exceeded that challenge, however. Fernandes put in more than 6,000 miles in 2013. In addition to organizing group rides, the club focuses on helping the communities of its members. The Plumas-Sierra Bicycle Club volunteers its time with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship to help build trails around the county. Club members also went to Plumas County schools and promoted bicycle safety by $15 for individuals, $25 for holding bike rodeos, families and $50 for business Membership for 2014 costs sponsorships. Those• interested in joining the club can contact Fernandes at a UI James Wilson Sports Editor The days left until the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship's annual Trailfest are getting fewer and fewer, and the chance to get a discounted presale ticket is shrinking. The evening of fun with a Casino Royale theme is set to take place Jan. 18 at Nakoma Golf Resort. The doors will open at 5 p.m. Presale tickets cost $40 at while tickets at the door cost $45. Each ticket purchased not only helps out the nonprofit but also entitles the bearer to quite a lot. Every entry includes a first-class dinner and a stash of play money to take to the tables at the casino-themed party. The stewardship plans to have blackjack, roulette, craps and Texas Hold 'em. Dinner will include teriyaki marinated tri-tip, mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables, mixed green salad, rustic pasta with artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes, mushrooms with a pesto cream sauce and dessert. And, as is the case with every SBTS event, there will be plenty of libations. Auctions, both silent and live, will be included at the event and special presentations giving updates on the stewardship's trail projects will be given. Trailfest is one of the largest SBTS fundraisers of the year. Those interested in purchasing tickets or who would like more information about Trailfest are invited to visit EAGLES, from page 2C always used tournaments to develop kids, identify chemistry and to expose our team to high-level competition. By conference we've identified the style and combinations which enable us to play at our highest potential." This year's squad lost two of its best guards prior to the start of the season due to season-ending injuries. "Losing our two guards to injuries really hurt, as it's tough to compete with the state's best without tough, competitive guards. I can say that our freshman guards have really developed and will represent our community during conference play," Rick added. "For us to be successful in conference this year we'll have to create a high-level transition game, press fuU-court and make fatigue a factor in our opponents," said Rick. This year's team is very young and~athletic, and will provide Quincy and Plumas County a high level and entertaining brand af basketball. "I call our crowd Eagle Nation and it is by far the most electrifying and fun crowd in the state of California. I thank all of those individuals who have attended games for the past several years," Rick concluded. Members of the Plumas-Sierra Bicycle Club get in one of their last rides of the year Dec. 29, 2013, by circling Sierra Valley.
