This Week's News from the Carson Valley Inn


A Wild Game Special in CV Steak, the Annual Senior Health Fair, a $5,000 Super Sunday Jackpot, our upcoming Bridal Fair, new ownership at the Genoa Lakes golf courses and more are covered below in this week's Carson Valley Inn blog posting.

Senior Health Fair Today: There's a big Senior Health Fair in our Valley Ballroom today from 8 a.m. to noon and admission is free! The event is actually open to anyone of any age and it’s the "15th Annual" sponsored by The Douglas County Senior Center. Over 30 vendors will be on hand including home health services, medical providers, County offices, community health nurse, social services, assisted living facilities, senior volunteer organizations and more.  Certain types of blood work will be available for a low cost. It's a great assembly of information all in one convenient location so come on by if you are in the area.

Game Dinner Special: Our Game-On Fridays in CV Steak features a different "game" oriented dinner special each Friday. This week (Friday, January 24) CV Steak is offering a Wild Game Mix Grill for $29. This hearty plate includes Rabbit sausage and marinated tenderloins of both Buffalo and Elk with Cabernet Demi-Glace plus fresh vegetable. As with all CV Steak entrees, the Game-On Friday special also includes tableside-tossed salad and your choice of potato - au gratin, baked, or a one-pound, twice-baked potato.

More Horse Racing News: Carson Valley Inn owner Mike Pegram had three horses run at Santa Anita Park this past weekend. In the $200,000 Stru Stakes for four year olds on Saturday, it was a one-two finish for Mike as Shakin It Up finished first and Govenor Charlie second. On Sunday, Fiftyshadesofhay finished fourth in the La Canada Stakes. One of the other horses broke sharply inward leaving the starting gate, interfering with Fiftyshadesofhay and forcing jockey Mike Smith to check sharply out of the gate.

Bridal Fair Coming Up: The next Carson Valley Inn Bridal Fair is Sunday, February 23 from 2 to 5 p.m. in our Valley Ballroom and admission is free! Produced in conjunction with "The Entertainer," the event features wedding vendors, free wedding related seminars, free refreshments, prize drawings and a special "man cave" for the grooms and fathers to hang out and enjoy a cocktail while watching an NBA game. All the details are on our web site (click here) or call Carrie at 775-783-6673.

$5,000 Guaranteed Pay Out on $5 Parlay Card Super Sunday: Our Progressive Pro Pick'em jackpot didn't hit on January 19 so we rounded it up to $5,000 and it must be given away on Super Sunday! There are 15 bets on the card including picking the winner and those always-fun proposition bets. This one is simple: whoever picks the most correct wins the $5,000 (ties split)! Play as many $5 cards as you like - entries are accepted until 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 2 during any hours the Sports and Race Book is open at the Carson Valley Inn or Bodines Casino.

For the Thousand of Golfers Who Stay with Us Each Year: Yesterday, the Genoa Lakes Properties including both the Lakes and Resort Courses were acquired by the Genoa Golf Group IV, LLC. Both courses will undergo improvements under the new ownership and Lou Eiguren is staying on as General Manager.
