Bill Peck, General Manager of the Sunriver Owners Association, gives us a three minute video tour and construction update of the Sunriver Aquatics and Recreation Facility. Scheduled completion date is Memorial Day, 2012. This project is BIG!
One of the most recognizable photo spots at Sunriver Resort is getting a spruce today courtesy of Director of Recreation Rob Macgowan and his daughter Raynee. Countless guests of Sunriver Resort and the community have taken advantage of this four-seater bicycle to capture a memory of their time here and their time spent on our 30+ miles of paved bike paths.
Stop by the Bike Barn to see our bike with a new sparkle!
Since groundbreaking on a snow covered February 25th, construction at the Sunriver Aquatics Center has all been earthwork, trenching, underground utilities, footings, and concrete slabs. This week, for the first time, construction has moved vertical with walls going up on the Community Center building.
Things are really starting to take shape now. A brand new bike path is also being built along the south side of the construction site, close to where the action is. If you're in the area, stop by and view the progress of what will be an outstanding addition and fun place to go while in Sunriver. Everything remains on schedule for a gala grand opening on Memorial Day, 2012, now less than one year away!!!
This past Sunday 12 Sunriver Resort associates and their families teamed up to participate in the Heaven Can Wait 5k Run/Walk to benefit Sara’s Project. Sara’s Project funds research, support services, education and low/no cost breast screenings to promote the early detection of breast cancer in the local community. Over 4,000 people participated in the event!
Wildlife encounters in Sunriver are extremely common - elk, porcupines, eagles, coyotes, deer and owls can all be seen in single early morning bike ride. It is fairly uncommon, however, to see these animals interact.
This morning a family of coyotes were chasing three deer near Lake Aspen, most likely engaging in a behavior known as “practice hunting”. According to our Sunriver Nature Center experts, there are plenty of mice and squirrels to eat in the meadows and fields in the area so there is no need for coyotes to hunt larger game. The deer in the video below weren’t so sure. Watch at :20 as they jump into the lake to escape (view full screen).
Having been in golf for nearly 20 years, my fondest memories are of my days as a junior when scores and advanced technique mattered all too little. Looking back, it seems that the most appropriate word to describe those experiences is FUN. Since then, I have been fortunate to work closely with juniors of all ages and have come to realize that the most important ingredient introducing young people to golf is indeed FUN. For many juniors, the introduction to the game comes with clubs that do not fit and technical instruction that leads to misunderstanding and frustration.
Here’s an exciting event you won’t want to miss! Saturday, June 11, 2011, the Sunriver Anglers Club and area partners are working together to provide a unique hands-on kids fishing experience to educate children about fish biology and ecology as well as the skills and pleasures of getting outdoors, wetting a line, and trying to catch a fish or two.
