Incline Village community notes: March 2, 2016

Yes, pothole season is back! Please be extra careful if snow covers our village again, as the potholes will still be waiting to attack your vehicles and you will not see the monsters until you are in one! Let’s hope the snow does return as we do need more quickly.

Incline High School hosts the annual Vintage vs. Varsity Basketball game at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 5. A few brave “mature” men purchased a spot on the Vintage team in hopes of at least keeping up with the IHS Varsity basketball team. Good luck to both teams! There will be a 3-point contest for various age groups and entertainment for all!

SnowFest! Ladies Night Out Bunco Bash is 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 9, at the North Tahoe Event Center in Kings Beach.
