Tailgate Talks
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm
Tailgate Talks

Alpenglow Sports, Tahoe City’s 39-year-old mountain shop, is starting an in-house adventure presentation series coined the Tailgate Talks.

The shows are focused on adventure, travel and mountain exploration. The shows will take place at Alpenglow Sports on various weekday evenings throughout the fall. Each show is communal in nature, designed to provide a fun and inspiring outlet for the Lake Tahoe adventure community and benefits a local nonprofit.  

The first installment will be Sept. 21 at 7pm with Bree Loewen, a thoughtful and elegant explorer of the hardships and joys of search and rescue, risk and motherhood. Loewen will present stories and readings from her new book “Found: A Life in Mountain Rescue.”

Loewen’s first book, “Pickets and Dead Men,” was her account of the three seasons she spent as a climbing ranger on Mount Rainier.

The show begins at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30pm. Call Alpenglow Sports at 530.583.6917 for further details.

Young Eagles rally
Sep 23 all-day
Young Eagles rally

The Truckee Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) chapter is returning to the Lake Tahoe Airport this year for a Young Eagles rally, offering free airplane rides for youngsters 8-17. The rally will be Sept. 23 starting at 8am.

The free rides are part of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Young Eagles program, in which volunteer pilots introduce kids to aviation by giving them airplane rides.

The EAA started the Young Eagles program in 1992 with the goal of flying 1 million kids by Dec. 17, 2003, the centennial of the Wright brothers’ flights. They easily surpassed that goal and to date more than 2 million kids in more than 90 countries have joined the ranks of Young Eagles. The Truckee chapter has flown over 3,500 Young Eagles in that time.

Following the flight, each young person receives a certificate making them an official Young Eagle. Their name will then be entered into the world’s largest logbook, which is on permanent display at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wis. In addition to the certificate, the new Young Eagle will be given their own logbook with an access code for a free EAA student membership and free access to the online flight training course offered by Sporty’s Pilot Shop, as well as several other programs.
