The “Best Ball for a Cause” Golf Tournament on Saturday, Sept 25 promises to be great fun for golfers and non-golfers alike. Play in the 9 hole tournament or just come for a BBQ lunch, a silent auction, the always popular “Wine Wheelbarrow “ raffle and “Putt for Wine” games.
Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline, the tournament will be held for the fourth year at IVGID’s Mountain Course, 630 Wilson Way with a shotgun start at 9am.
Incline High School had a similar bumpy start to the 2021/22 school year but is now on track to go full speed ahead. Its students had their first day back to school this past August 27, but it ended up being a bit of a lackluster start.
“It was on a Friday, the weirdest day to go back,” says IHS Principal Tierney Cahill. “We had a high energy motivator coming into to pump up the kids and we prepared for this wild, positive day and then it just didn’t happen,” she explains. The following week, IHS resumed school for two days but even then, it was kind of torturous.
The 2021/22 school year in Incline Village was off to a bit of a strained start but not even Covid-19 nor the Caldor Fire could keep kids from going back to school in person. Within the Washoe County School District, the first day back to school for in-person/in classroom education was supposed to be August 23, however, most schools didn’t really start getting into the groove of things until after Labor Day. Here are some fun, new, and exciting programs and events local schools have lined up for this fall:
Lots of Fun Upcoming Events at IES
Hello Incline Village and Crystal Bay! This summer has been challenging with the Caldor fire that reached the south shore of Lake Tahoe and its associated smoke, plus record temperatures. I want you to know that the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office and Washoe County Truckee Meadows Fire Department have been working hard to keep the fires at bay with our regional partners and your homes safe. Washoe County believes that we are part of #teamTahoe and have been supporting efforts to support the health of the Lake.
The massive Caldor Fire that started just south of Grizzly Flats, CA, and continued to head east into the Tahoe Basin sent a shockwave through Big Blue and penetrated the heart of sister communities on the North Shore. With rapid succession Incline Village, Crystal Bay, and Kings Beach Communities accelerated to hyper speed to feed, clothe, shelter and otherwise assist those displaced by the wildfire raging within the basin.
The Fashion Show is to help our cause of sending a deserving high school student to the college of their choice in 2022. We are also supporting "We The People" at Incline High School, the Veteran's Guest House in Reno, Wreath's Across America for the grave sites of our Veteran's, Kid's and Horses, as well as gifts to Incline Public Library, as well as the Incline Village Community Hospital Auxiliary.

As the smoke continues to blanket the Lake Tahoe Basin and surrounding areas from the Caldor Fire, we are all feeling the impacts in many ways.
PRINCIPAL, Tierney Cahill, comes to the post with an inspiring backstory which sheds light on innovative techniques in education she’ll be bringing up the hill with her.
Back in 2000, challenged by the 6th grade class she taught at Sarah Winnemucca Elementary School in Reno, Cahill wound up running for Congress. She had her class run her campaign, offering a prime example of projectbased learning and winding up becoming the Democrat’s nominee in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District.
MARK SCOZZAFAVA’S ALMOST THREE DECADE CAREER in education has come full circle. As with many of us who have chosen to live here in Tahoe, Mark’s first teaching job happened “by chance,” Scozzafava said. A San Diego native, Scozzafava was staying with a friend in Incline in the early 1990s, enjoying all the recreation the area had to offer but needing a job his first winter in town. The high school, then, like now, needed substitute teachers, so he became one.
While Tahoe is world renowned for mountain biking, there is one trail that has arguably brought Tahoe more biking fame than any other, the Flume Trail. The Flume Trail certainly isn’t easy, but the scenery far outweighs its difficulty. The beauty of this trail can’t be credited to anyone, but its accessibility, as an acclaimed biking trail can be, meet Max Jones.
