Free Pickup Truck This Weekend, Free Advertising for Your Business, Mike Has A Winner, More

Pickup Truck Giveaways this Friday and Saturday! Just a friendly reminder that we are giving away two Ford F150 pickup trucks this weekend - one on Friday night at the Carson Valley Inn and another on Saturday night at Bodines Casino. It's not too late to get in, but you have to use your Inn Club card while playing in the casino in order to earn virtual drawing tickets. All the details are posted at the Guest Services counter and we hope you'll throw your hat into the "possibility ring" because there will be a pickup truck winner on Friday at the CVI and Saturday at Bodines!

$80,000 Giveaway Promotion Starts Sunday . . .  and continues through Friday, August 28. A total of $80,000 will be given away including $20,000 guaranteed on  August 28! Like most of our casino promotions, this one is pretty simple: you earn a drawing ticket for every five points you accumulate using your INN Club card. Drawings are every Friday and Saturday at 5, 7 and 9 p.m. for Cash and FreePlay. Check this page for all the details on this and our other current casino promotions.

We'll Advertise Your Business for Free! Opportunities like this don't come along very often. The Carson Valley Inn, Bodines Casino, and Sharkeys' Casino publish a newspaper every two months called the Carson & Valley Voice. It usually runs about eight pages and is direct mailed to addresses in Carson Valley, Carson City, some of our neighboring California communities to the south, and certain sections of the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe. A little over 50,000 copies. The next issue comes out on August 1 and we are offering a few local businesses the opportunity to advertise at no charge. All we ask is that you make an offer to our Players Club members in your ad that provides them with a discount or special deal that is not available through your normal advertising and promotional avenues. You supply your company logo and the offer details, we'll even help design your ad at no charge. Naturally, we reserve the right to approve advertisers, the offer, and we certainly need to limit the number of advertisers in each issue. If this sounds interesting, please call 775-783-7713 or send an email as soon as possible with your name, phone number and company name. Hurry . . . our deadline is Wednesday, July 15.

Tanya Tucker drew a big crowd last Friday and the spectacular sunset was an added bonus to a nostalgic night. Thanks to all who helped make this event another success. Don't forget to jump in now for tickets to the 38 Special Concert on Thursday, July 23 and the Moe Bandy & TG Sheppard Concert on Saturday, August 8!

Mike's Horses: we haven't been saying much lately about how Mike's horses are doing. They have been running, but no one wants to read about horses that come in second or, even on a couple of occasions, furthest-from-first. Last Saturday, he had a winner when Gimme Da Lute won the Los Alamitos Derby at Los Alamitos Race Course. That's the second consecutive win for the colt that also won the Affirmed Stakes on June 7 at Santa Anita. What's next?  The nature of the business dictates that we always have to say "were not sure." However, we will always let you know the good news after-the-fact!

Penny Progressive Jackpot Climbing . . . like from $60,000 to over $67,000 in the last week!  We can't predict when the jackpot will hit, but history tells us that when it gets to this level, the play picks up substantially and chances are pretty good that it will hit soon. However, we can guarantee it will be paid right here at the Carson Valley Inn. 

Steven Tyler’s "Love Is Your Name" is the first country music release for the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Famer. This is not something we would usually put in our blog, but the planets aligned in such a way on this one that we felt we should: Aerosmith was in our area about a week ago. Steven Tyler is the lead singer. The band members in his new video are from the group Loving Mary who performed in TJ's Corral last month. You'll see some of them in the video above!!
