12A Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012 Feather River Bulletin Pioneer I t y The Pioneer Pool in Quin- cy will be holding a special "pirates" theme day today, Wednesday, Aug. 8. The theme day will consist of or- ganized games, contests and activities for children to participate in, as well as a good nutrition table to pro- mote positive eating habits for kids. "This is a great opportunity for kids to get to come and have some organized fun with their friends at the pool, while at the same time hav- ing the opportunity to learn a little more about the impor- tance of Proper nutrition and exercise," said sports coordi- nator Jeren Seibel. For more information about the theme days at the pool, call the Central Plumas Recreation and Park District office at 283-3278, or visit the office at 34 Fair- ground Road, Maiden voyage Excited kids prepare to launch the "boats" they constructed at Pioneer Pool Aug. 4 during a special Dive to Thrive event.

Most of the runners are from out of the area; some hail from as far away as Canada, Australia, New York, Florida and Louisiana. Many will be staying for the luau, which means about 500 people will be partying heartily at the Goss Ranch on North Arm Road. Besides the party, there will be a hay-bale maze and petting zoo for children, and a huge chance giveaway with more than 100 items lucky ticket holders can win. Some of the items include a trolling fishing boat and vaca- tions at Chico Canyon Re- treat, the Virgin Islands and several other resorts. And just for fun, there will be a bachelor auction featur- ing three gentlemen who are all accomplished marathon runners. "All three runners were looking for a way to raise even more money for Moun- tain Circle," one of the orga- nizers, Josie Litchfield, said. "So we thought, why not?" It's a logical step, consider- ing that 80 percent of the run- ners this year will be women. The Samba Band will pro- vide live entertainment. Band members actually make up a soccer team; they recently moved to Susanville from Brazil, where they were also professional musicians. "We got to see them play and they are terrific," Litch- field added. The event is totally free be- sides the potluck dish and do- nated item. The potluck list is as fob lows: Those whose names begin with the letters A - G should bring desserts, H - M folks bring a vegetarian dish, N - S bring salads and T - Z can bring appetizers or other side dishes. Organizers also ask that people respond ahead of time with their attendance num- bers so that there is enough food and beverages on hand. To respond for the luau, call 284-7007 or email jlitch- The Goss Ranch, which will also be the start and finish line for the marathon, is lo- cated at 4864 North Arm Road between Greenville and Tay- lorsville.
