As of May 25, this writing date, we have water in the ponds and the gardens are planted with flowers. Last year we were not able to plant flowers until June 16.

I just returned from a wonderful timeshare vacation in New Orleans. It is amazing what a vacation can do for your mental health.

An Untamed Summer

“The danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, But in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”


Warmer temperatures and dryer conditions have made an early appearance to the Lake Tahoe basin. Lesser snowfall accumulations and an early spring melt-off have set in motion the urge to hike, ride and water sport with summer-like enthusiasm.

The Squaw Valley and Lake Tahoe summer and fall will once again be a vivid display of active pursuits, music, arts, food and fun. Returning again of note for the summer, beginning in July, will be the blues music series "Tuesday's Bluesdays", as well as an always enjoyable outdoor film series of recent and popular movies. Make time to take in the Lake Tahoe Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor, featuring "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" on the playbill for this season. August will feature the Lake Tahoe Concours d'Elegance Wooden Boat Show in Carnelian Bay. This is truly a special event! In Reno-Sparks, Nevada, August will showcase the return of Hot August Nights; a genuinely nostalgic event of beautiful vintage automobiles, food and music.

Below in the Odds & Ends section you will find the most commonly used solutions, however you are not limited to just those options.

2022 Olympic Bid Looks Likely

A recent resolution to a long standing feud between the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has cleared the way for a possible bid by a Reno-Tahoe coalition for the 2022 Winter Games.

For many years, international resentment has prevailed over the share of TV and Marketing revenues that the US has received from the Olympic Games. Most attribute this resentment to the failed bid by New York for the 2012 Games and the painful, first round elimination of Chicago in its bid for the 2016 Games. As a result, the USOC has refused to submit any subsequent bids until the revenue sharing dispute was resolved.

Resort Manager's Report (continued)

Wellness and lifestyle experts regularly speak to the extensive value and benefits of vacationing and travel. It is not the things you buy in life but the memories that you create with family and friends that last forever.

Included in the insert is a listing of various exchange companies, should you be interested in using your week for a vacation other than OVI.

In early May, you should have received your budget and invoice for the fiscal year June 1, 2012 to May 31, 2013. Included in the insert is a dues comparison of California resorts with one-bedroom units. This reports that OVI's dues are in the middle of the comparison.

Hope you have a chance to visit OVI this summer.

President's Report (continued)

The proposal calls for up to 1,200 new lodging units on 107 developable acres. The plan includes condominium/hotel units, multi-story parking structures and thousands of square feet for new amenities such as retail, meeting space and possibly an ice rink.

The Board of Directors is staying abreast of the development and will keep you updated on the proposal's progress. As part of that commitment, the board will be reviewing a report on the specific plan of the development and its possible effects on OVI. In addition, after an environmental impact report (EIR) is released (expected by late June/early July 2012), the Board will evaluate the EIR .

In other news, the Board of Directors is expected to finalize a room refurbishment plan at its June Board meeting. It is exciting to see what can be done to the rooms to improve them. We are always doing minor improvements to the rooms, but the last large refurbishment was done in 1995, 17 years ago. We will keep you updated.

I hope you and your family have a great summer and will consider visiting OVI as part of your summer plans.


Michael Harper, President

The Olympic Village Inn will always provide a fun and varied selection of activities for your enjoyment. On the schedule will be: guided hikes, jewelry and pottery painting classes, Vinyasa Flow yoga, water aerobics, boat cruises and an assortment of social gatherings. Not to be missed is the return of local author and historian Mark McLaughlin and "Stories of the Sierra", an amazing journey back into Tahoe's origins to the present. In addition, be sure to check out our Facebook page which is easily linked from our home page on our website: On it you will find year-round information, photos, activities and up to date events and announcements throughout the year.

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that all was vanity, But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men for they may act their dream with open eyes and make it possible."”

– T.E. Lawrence

The season has come around again to allow dreams and ideas to run wild. The untamed nature of summer makes this all possible. I look forward to your return...

2022 Olympic Bid Looks Likely(continued)

While many in the Reno-Tahoe region have been interested in pursuing a return of the Olympics to the area, and in 2003 established a solid coalition of bi-state political and business leaders with this intent, this long-running conflict between the two Olympic Committees has stood in the way of a formal bid submittal. That is, until now.

Just this past week (May 23rd), the USOC and IOC entered into a long-term agreement that will clear the way for possible US bids for the 2022 Winter and 2024 Summer Games. With this news, the path now seems clear for Reno-Tahoe to make a formal bid for the Games.

For the 2022 winter games to return to the Northern Sierra, Reno-Tahoe must first be selected as the USOC's choice (sometime in 2013) before advancing to the international selection round, which will select the 2022 host city in 2015. Other US cities expressing interest in the 2022 games include Denver, Salt Lake City and Bozeman, Montana.

We will be sure to follow and keep you updated on this exciting story.
