Whacking Weeds, Water, & Weekend Events

So, the Park District has been over here whacking weeds. My neighbor was up and got the sprinklers going but didn’t do any clearing–just planting. Guess we are not all so whacky…

Down at Fawn Harbor onlookers were a bit disconcerted at the arrival of a large number of policemen…have no fear! The officers were up doing training on the mountain roads.

The Huntington Beach brigade just stopped lakeside for lunch and to enjoy the view. Several police groups and academy riders can be seen in the valley riding in formation. Just part of the training…unless Captain John is holding out on us!

Since I’ve been under the weather for quite some time I haven’t kept up with all the news–so here are some additional updates on valley happenings.

Moms & Rods

Moms & Rods Car Show in the Northwoods Parking lot started Thursday evening and will run through the weekend. Stop by to see over 500 vehicles in this collection of pre-1976 cars and trucks. Free admission.

Andi & Dennis Garage Sale

If you are over this way stop by Chicasaw (across from the Old Miller School House) for a mighty fine garage sale. Some of the other neighbors are chipping in so stop by between 9am until 3pm on Friday June 6th & Saturday June 7th. No early birds.

Bow Hunters to Hunt Big Bear Carp

MWD’s Carp Round-Up is this weekend with a top award of $1000! This is the 5th annual event which will begin on Saturday. Fishing time (really “Hunting Time” as the round up is done with bows) begins at 7am on both June 7th and 8th.

The cost is $40 per person and awards will be given to both shoreline and boating teams. The cash prizes are based on the total weight of all the carp weighed for two days. Last year just under 9,000 pounds of carp were rounded up.

The entry fee includes a t-shirt, mesh fish bag, lunch at the awards ceremony, and a raffle ticket for the grand prize of two custom bows.

To participate, stop by the Big Bear Municipal Water District at 40524 Lakeview Drive in Big Bear Lake and pick up an application. See more MWD events here.

Big Bear Choppers: Ride the Mountain

My neighbor whined about the Pirate Faire (she lives close by the event) and the Big Bear Choppers 6th Annual Ride the Mountain event (because of the noise).

However, the event may be good for some valley businesses. You can get all entry forms and pay online from Big Bear Choppers. 82 Fifty to perform both days and don’t miss Rod Piazza on Saturday and Vince Neil of Motley Crue on Sunday, June 8th.

The infamous Ride the Mountain Poker Run will take place on Saturday. Entry fee is $30 per poker hand and includes entrance into the event along with a T-shirt and event pin. The run will take participants around the lake and throughout Big Bear Valley

Registration is from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Big Bear Choppers at 41922 Fox Farm Road, Big Bear Lake. All poker hands must be turned in to the registration booth by 4:00pm and awards will be announced on Sunday at 1:00pm.

Kevin Alsop and the Big Bear Choppers crew will judge the show with three categories, Big Bear Choppers Builder, Big Bear Choppers Factory Built and Open Class. The only fee is for the Open Class which is $25.

Registration for the show is from 6:00am to 9:30am on June 7th and will be at the top of the Snow Summit Parking lot. Judging takes place from 9:30am until Noon. Award ceremonies will be held on June 8th at 1:00pm.

The Ride the Mountain event at Snow Summit takes place from 9:30am to 5pm both days. Tickets are $15 for both days or $10 for single day tickets. Children six and under are admitted free. Snow Summit is located at 880 Summit Blvd., Big Bear Lake.

Proceeds from Ride the Mountain benefit Big Bear Valley Recreation and Park District’s Teen Center.

    Yes, it will be the old mill. Most locals that I have heard from have grumbled about the Pirate Faire this year. If you want, email me your comments about it from the contact page. I have not attended since the first year at the marina–which was fabulous.
