#WhyCV Contest Starts Today: Submissions can  now be made for the #WhyCV Contest sponsored by the Carson Valley Visitors Authority and Carson Valley Times. Gather your favorite photo (like the one above), video or written story depicting why Carson Valley has carved out a special place in your heart. Prizes include an iPad, a GoPro, smartphone camera lenses, and a variety of gift certificates to the best in local dining – including CV Steak of course! All the details are on this page and we hope you’ll include the CArson Valley Inn if we are part of your story on how you came about visiting or moving here!

Sports and Race Book:
  • On the Board: This week you can bet NFL Football, the remaining NCAA Bowl Games, NBA, College Basketball and NHL.  Also on the board: futures bets on who will win the NCAA Football Championship, Super Bowl, NBA Championship and NHL Stanley Cup.
  • The PRO PK’EM Parlay Progressive is now at $4,395 – pick all 15 NFL props straight up on the $5 card and it’s yours! And if no one hits this week, we will carny this over to the NFL playoffs.
  • Around the Sportsbook with Mike, Alan and Greg:
    • Last Week, 3-3: Mike skunked as he took Maryland at -1½ over Boston College (B.C. won) in the Quick Lane Bowl and the Rams at -4 over the 49ers (seriously, did anyone bet the Niners to actually win?). Alan had the Ravens at +5 over the Steelers (got it by 1 point) and the Raiders at -4 over the Colts (another win). Greg got the Niners at +4 over the Rams and was “off by a mile” on the Jets at +16 ½ over the Patriots.
    • Last Week Trivia Quiz: The Quick Lane Bowl is backed by the Detroit Lions. It is a de facto replacement for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. The Ford Motor Company serves as title sponsor of the game through its auto shop brand Quick Lane.
    • This Week:  Mike likes Oklahoma State at +3 over Colorado and the Clemson Tigers (+3 ½) over Ohio State. Alan’s going pro on his picks: Raiders to beat Denver in a pick ‘em game and the Dolphins at +9 ½ over the Patriots. (Per Mike, “there’s still fight in them there fish!”)  Greg tapped the Giants at +8 over the Redskins and (get ready) the  “overs" on the Falcons-Saints game at 56! 
    • Trivia: Only about 17% of NFL games have a point total over 56 points. The highest point total in an NFL game was 113 points when Washington beat the N.Y. Giants 72 - 41 on Nov. 27, 1966.
Relatively Unimportant but Fun: Some people make lists. Still others compile lists of lists. Then there are those who find an article like this: The Master List of Year End Lists - over 350 of 'em! We certainly don’t have time for all this so we "borrowed" this link from an update Bill Chernock from the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce sent to Chamber members yesterday. How did he find the time? We suspect he plans on picking up time this Saturday on Leap Second Time Adjustment Day! What did all these list makers do before the internet provided a forum for publishing such lists?

Planning a Stay at the CVI? You will always get the best rate by booking directly with the Carson Valley Inn either online or by calling our Reservation Department directly at 775-783-6629 or 800-321-6983.
