The Lassen swarm pro- duced Z35 quakes, including the M 3.9 and 4Z M Zs. Most of the activity occurred be- tween 1-3 miles below the surface but some were very close to the surface and other nearly 8 miles deep. Volcanoes can be con- sidered as cracks whereby magma can find its way to the surface. This earthquake sequence showed that the "crack" had abundant movement throughout its length to the magma chamber There was no word from Park officials if the hot springs responded to the activity. The swarm died out on November 20, but a lone M 1.1 this week indicated it may not be over yet. The earthquake swarm in northern Washoe County, Nevada continued, pro- ducing another 93 events, including one as large as M 4.0 on December 10. Two quakes registering M 2.0 occurred in the wee hours on December 8 and 9. -,. ,.: :':":ii:'' o'- ',;!::,-,,! !, ....... .iii':'! " ;''  ,!i :.-.. Lake Almanor Snowmobile Club member Glen Donley takes advantage of the 3 inches of fresh snow at Yuba Pass on Highway 49. The prediction of approaching storms should rapidly improve opportunities for sledding in the Almanor Basin. Photo submitted Snowmobileclub plans Presidents Day Poker Run M. Kate West Staff Writer With the arrival of snow in the Almanor Basin, optimism was abundant as members of the Lake Almanor Snowmobile Club gathered for their monthly meeting Dec. 11. LASC has begun making preparations for its annual Poker Run, which is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 14, 2015. "After the dismal snowpack last year that forced cancellation of the always-popular event, our members are extremely motivated to ensre_thattl_ event is not only successful, but most importantly, that all the participants have a great and fun-filled adventure," LASC president Tommy Gaither said. Those that attended the Poker Run two years ago agree it would be hard to forget the Hawaiian theme at Checkpoint No. 4. "This year all checkpoints will be engaging in the same shenanigans with a prize being presented to the favorite, which will be picked by attendees," Gaither added. The festivities will begin at 8 a.m. with the first riders hitting the trail around 9 a.m. The Rotary Club of Chester will again offer lunch. A prize drawing and live auction for prizes will be hosted after lunch. The $25 entry fee covers the cost of the Poker Run, lunch and a poker hand. Additional hands may be purchased for $5. "For those not riding, just come on out. Buy a lunch and visit with your neighbors," Gaither said. LASC is always looking for new members and the club has decided to extend the promotion started at the last Poker Run. Individuals who join thec!ph andpay their, !:. : ,! $25 annual dues will ........ receive 50 percent off the cost of the Poker Run entry fee. "Half price! That's a deal that's hard to pass up. The only prerequisite for membership in the club is that you must enjoy having fun," he said. For more information on the Poker Run or to obtain a LASC membership application call Tom at 375-7781 or Kathy at 596-4354: "LASC also has several rides planned for this season, so 'like' us on Facebook to keep up with all of our activities and to receive updates," Gaither said.
