QUITE THE WEEK...
If you sat around bored this past week, you have no one to blame but yourself... it was one heck of a busy week in the Intermountain Area.
You had your choice of Century Bike Ride, Fall River Chamber Summer Music series, Two Co-Ed softball leagues with games Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Then the Channel Cats played at home in McArthur on Tuesday and Sunday. If that wasn’t enough to keep ya busy you had the Hat Creek Volunteer Fire Department BBQ and two All-Star football games on Saturday plus a phenomenal car show on Sunday. Okay, I’m going to take a nap until Labor Day - no alarm clock necessary.
It’s going to be another hectic week this week, starting with the Burney football Lift-A-Thon that was held yesterday (Monday). Co-Ed softball will be in Fall River Monday and Wednesday and in Burney Tuesday and Thursday. The Inter- Mountain Fair Queen Scholarship pageant is Friday night and you can cap it off with the Old Station Fire Department BBQ on Saturday. Whew!
Ya gotta love living in the Intermountain Area, where neighbors and friends provide us with plenty to keep us busy during the hot summer days and warm summer evenings. Most of these activities are provided by our friends and neighbors VOLUNTEERING their time and efforts to give the rest of us some great entertainment - not to mention scrumptious food. That’s what makes living here so great.
Living in this area is also great because of the phenomenal support the area gives our youngsters. The All-Star football games sponsored by the Redding Breakfast Lions was a huge success Saturday, with four local kids playing and a ton of support from fans in the Intermountain Area making the trip to Shasta College. It was great seeing Cody Davis, Hunter Hawkins and Collin Owens play in the 8-man game and Michael Gallagher in the 11-man contest. All got plenty of playing time and did a great job. Thanks for the entertainment guys.
The Channel Cats American Legion baseball team also received great support this summer, closing out their season with a double header sweep Sunday at Fall River high school’s field. Just like the All-Star football games that brought competitors together on the same team, so did the C-Cats. Players from Fall River, Big Valley, Burney and Modoc left their competitive spirit at home as they cam together to play baseball in sweltering heat this summer. They buried the hatchets and came out swinging the baseball bats as a cohesive unit. Now that the C-Cats season has come to a close, it’ll be back to friendly competition between these athletes as they once again represent their respective schools come this fall.
If you are looking for something to do this week, catching a co-ed softball game or two might be just the thing. Bring a chair and relax on a warm summer evening at either the Washburn-Bue Park in Burney on Tuesday and Thursday evening (games at 6, 7:15 and 8:30) or pack up your chair and head to the Lions Community Park in Fall River Mills for a 7 o’clock game on Monday or a double header on Wednesday. There’s plenty of grass to lounge around on while watching some good ol’ American pastime fun - summer softball.
See ya at the old park.
