Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, May 5, 2010 7A Shannon Morrow Sports Editor sports@plumasnews.com For the first time in many years, the Quincy High School senior prom is mov- ing to a new venue. Tradi- tionally held at the Plumas County courthouse, this year's prom will be at Green- horn Creek Guest Ranch Sat- urday, May 15. The grand march will hap- pen as usual, but now it will take place on the pic- turesque bridge over Estray Creek, in front of the lodge. Spectators will be on the lawn below the path on the other side of the bridge. The grand march will be- gin at 7 p.m., with prom pic- tures beginning' at 6 p.m. in front of the pond. The prom moved to Green- horn Creek so those attend- ing would have more activi- ties to keep them enter- tained. QHS senior Natalie Ray, this year's prom organizer, explained that when the prom was held at tlm court- house, students didn't stay. "They'd come for an hour and then leave," said Ray. "Now there will be a lot more to do. Having a differ- ent setting and something new should spark interest in going to prom." Dancing will be in the more appropriately designed Greenhorn Creek dance hall, which has much better acoustics than the marble courthouse. Adjacent to the dance hall is a recreation room with pool, ping-pong, video games and other fun activities. Outside the dance hall a large campfire will be burn- ing, ringed by plenty of com- fortable benches. On the other side of the dance hall, a large balcony offering picturesque views leads down to the swimming pool,.which will be open to those who bring swimsuits and towels. Changing rooms will be available. Just a stone's throw away from the dancehall is a pond, for anyone who desires to go fishing. "Our facility is set up for many different kinds of spe- cial events," said Trish Wilburn of Greenhorn Creek. "We're looking for- ward to having prom here al- so." The senior class has held fundraisers throughout the school year to pay the addi- tional expenses of the im- proved venue, and Green- horn Creek is providing its facilities and labor at a spe- cial rate for the high school.
