June 6, 2015 (SATURDAY!) Tahoe City/The Boatworks Paint-Out

Date:           June 6, 2015 (SATURDAY)
Time:           9:30 am
Place:          The Boatworks Mall at Tahoe City

Parking:       plenty of free parking
Amenities:    Bathrooms, shops, restaurants
Meet:           On the lawn next to the boat works
Host:           Organized by Trina Gold

Sorry I don't have photos at this time.  Anyway, you can paint boats, the lake, the beach, etc. - all around the Boatworks Mall.  I don't know when people fill up the parking lot, but it is a Saturday, so I think 9:30 am will ensure a parking spot.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • camera 
  • artgear
  • something to carry it over the sand
  • beach chair?
  • art umbrella?
  • food and drink or money to dine out
  • hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
  • check forecast for appropriate layers

Directions: From South Reno:  take Mt. Rose Hwy to Incline Village, Right on NV 28, continue about 12 miles to Tahoe City.

From North Reno:  take I-80 to Truckee, take Hwy 89 south to Tahoe City, go straight through the light onto North Lake Blvd.  Less than a mile look for the Boatworks - Jakes sign on your right.

Be sure to drop by James Harold Galleries in the Boatworks Mall.  Some of our artists have work there!

Cancellation - May 18, 2015 paint-out

Hi everyone,

Monday, May 18, 2015 paint-out is cancelled.  Even if  we got lucky and didn't get rain during the paint-out, it would most likely be muddy getting around.  It is wonderful to have rain, we really need it.  I will look into rescheduling the Minden ranch paint-out for next week.  Stay tuned.....

Downloadable PDF map of the park:

Directions:  Drive about 10 miles west of Reno on I80 and take the Verdi exit past Boomtown and Cabela's. At the stop, turn left on S. Verdi Road (there is a sign pointing to Crystal Peak Park). This road twists around, passing under I80, over the railroad tracks, and under I80 again. It turns into Crystal Park Road. Look for the park's upper parking lot on your left. Just before this lot, there is a sharp left turn that takes you to the lower lot by the picnic area, restrooms, and trailhead. There is a Crystal Peak Park sign here, but it is hard to see before you need to turn. (DIRECTIONS FROM THE INTERNET)
