14 Thursday; June 26; 1997 Pldap Vallty Gette Out Esmeralda Way Swinging weekend in Fish Lake Valley by:Carol Sirnes Good Morning! This past weekend (June 20-22, 1997) the Fish Lake Valley Volunteer Fire Department & Boonies hbsted the summer bike run and hog roast, with kudos going to Ken Elgin, Dirk Andrews, and Ken Aldrich and their crew in preparing the hog roast. The dinner was delicious - the meat so tender a person with no teeth could gum it down. Some history on Boonies; in 1987 Frank Smith and friends in the area built the bar and restaurant with Charlotte and Bob Bumgarner taking over later that year. It changed hands Jan. 3, 1995, when Marcel and Ursula Ambrezewicz bought it. The building is surrounded by plenty of shade trees and parking space, and the restaurant has a full-size menu. Their summer hours are 11 a.m. - 10 p.m. Years ago, Charlotte and Bob started the hog roast and bike run which lasted five years, and is being revived again by Marcel and Ursula. Not enough entrants showed up this year for the run, but the bikers did make it for the roast and dance Saturday night to the lively music of Rocky & Friends, from Mammoth, Calif. Two black leather jackets were raffled off with the ladle's jacket being won by Karen Robertson and the men's jacket won by Kathy Moore. Winner of the Biker's Hotdog contest was Louise Cavalliere with her husband Sid Cavalliere driving. Those of you who haven't seen this contest, it's really neat! A door-shaped pole frame is erected about 7 feet high and wide enough for the biker to slowly drive through, while a partner behind him tries to bite the hotdog in half which is dangling from the top bar tied with string! Plans have begun for next year's hog roast and bike run! The Country Attic, owned and operated by Vicki and Danny Serfess, opened seven years ago. It's a variety store with a little bit of everything. Summer hours are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Last, but not least, in 1978 Norm and Angle Williams established the Esmeralda Store with two gas pumps. Ken and LaCinda Elgin took over in 1991. The store serves the community with a wide variety of goods, sodas, beer, ice, snacks and fresh fruit. Summer hours are 8 a.m.-9 :p.m. Writers tour Goldfield On June 18, 1997, writers from the west coast and Canada stop in town for a tour of Goldfield on their six-day tour of Nevada, hosted by the Nevada Pioneer Territory and the Nevada Cormnission on Tourism Their itinerary began June 15, 1997, in Reno, with stops in Yerington, Walker Lake, Hawthorne, Gabbs, Berlin Ichtyosaur State Park, Ione, Austin, Round MountainGold Mine, Man- hattan, Belmont, Tonopah, Goldfield, Scotty's Castle, Beatty, Rhyoli, Amgosa a House, Pahrump, Furnace Creek and Dea Valley.
