6A Wednesday, March 11, 2015 Feather River Bulletin New group plans to make , .Quincy more welcome to hikers A group of Quincy residents is developing plans to make Quincy into a "PCT town" and welcome others to join the effort. Why promote Quincy to Pacific Crest Trail hikers? The Pacific Crest Trail runs north and south through Plumas County crossing the Quincy-Oroville highway near Bucks Summit (24 miles west of Quincy) and Highway 70 near Belden (28 miles northwest of Quincy). It also crosses Highway 36 about 5 miles west of Chester. Pacific Crest Trail Association information suggests that there were at least 430 through-hikers in 2014. The PCTA expects that with the release of "Wild," the movie starring Reese Witherspoon, this past year, the number of PCT hikers will exceed 1,500. PCT hikers already visit Quincy to replenish food and supplies as they make . their way along the trail, whether traveling north or south. They need to pick up previously mailed supply packages, as well as replenish food supplies and other trail gear. They often desire a hearty meal and a refreshing shower. Organizers of the new group believe Quincy should do what it can to be certain that their needs are accommodated. Trina Ritter, who is leading the effort, said she sees this as an effort to promote community and community commerce. "I want to make certain that our community is knowledgeable and prepared on how we can be supportive in these efforts," said Ritter. "I believe that reaching out to PCT hikers is natural for Quincy and that it will provide an important economic boost." "PCT hikers already visit Quincy, but we can be proactive and much more coordinated in our efforts to be a part of their PCT experience," said Mike De Lasaux, who is also helping the effort. All who are interested are invited to join Ritter and De Lasaux in developing plans and actions to put Quincy on the map as a welcoming, hospitable PCT town. A gathering to discuss the vision and help with the effort is set for March 23 at the Quincy Collective on the corner of Lawrence and Church streets at 6 p.m. "If you are interested please send us an email (quincypct@gmail.com) so that we can share our evolving brainstorm document beforehand," said Ritter. "Also check out the new Facebook page at Lost Sierra PCT."

The program, which sports coordinator Jeren Seibel reported is designed to introduce young kids to basketball in a clinic format, was held at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds once a week for eight weeks and had 49 participants in all. The weekly clinic was made possible through a partnership between CPRPD - ,-.. f. ilmt" M. and Feather River College baseball. Each week a group of baseball players, directed by FRC assistant coach Jason Gay, volunteered time to help teach the fundamentals of basketball and give kids an opportunity to get some exercise in the winter. "I can't say enough about the job that coach Gay and his guys did this season," said Seibel. "They have been running this program for several years now, and always do a great job. Collaboration like this within the community is a necessity to make these programs happen. "It is selfless volunteerism like these coaches and players have displayed that continues to allow kids in our community to have the opportunity to participate in activities that promote health and well-being. Whether they realize it now or not, these young men have a profound impact on each of these kids, and you can tell the kids really look up to them. "A big thanks to everyone that helped out, and also thank you to the Plumas-Sierra Fairgrounds for providing us with a facility." c a:;eDall team wins six straight Greg Knight Sports Editor sports@plumasnews tom Pounding out 50 hits and scoring 39 runs, Feather River College found the confmes of Crabs Field to be friendly to visitors during a three-game sweep of College of the Redwoods on Friday and Saturday, March 6 - 7. The Golden Eagles moved to 12-5 on the season with the 7-0, 20-1 and 12-8 victories. They also improved to 6-0 in the Golden Valley Conference while upping their winning streak to six.

The sophomore right-hander improved to 4-2 on the season.

Feather River had 14 hits including two each by Eli Putnam, David Rapanot, Rex Campbell and Scotty Dwyer. In the nightcap, the bats heated up even more in the 20-1 pounding.

FRC scored six runs in the opening stanza and five more in the second, batting through the order both times. The Golden Eagles scored nine more times in the sixth with eight base hits. Nathan Reynolds led the way this time with three hits, including a pair of triple s and three runs scored. Trenton Stowe came off the bench to add two hits and he drove in three runs.
