Help a SNACer & Win a Kayak!

Many of you know Lew from his time in the Military, as a Boy Scout Leader, or from Search & Rescue. He’s spent his life in service, and now the community is rallying around him and his family. SNAC Arnold is donating a Kayak so to help raise funds for COTA, so that little Jace can have the transplant and all the care he needs. If you want to donate direct to COTA, do that via their website. If you want to donate via the raffle, come into SNAC Arnold or mail a check to SNAC Arnold, Box 1027, Arnold, CA 95223. Note, due to COTA Fundraising guidelines, SNAC is only able to collect cash and checks (made payable to COTA for Baby Jace). Mark your calendar for the Sun. 9/10/17 event – where the winning ticket will be drawn. Thanks for caring & see you there!

Escape into the High Country!

Summer’s not over yet and there’s still some high country adventure to be found. If you haven’t done that hiking or paddling trip yet, now’s your chance! Head for the mountains to escape the heat and see the last bit of wildflowers or finally try stand-up paddleboarding! Stop by SNAC Sonora for the best selection of rock climbing and backpacking gear. If you’re on your way to Ebbett’s Pass, swing into SNAC Arnold for kayak, canoe and SUP rentals. And if you find yourself in downtown, SNAC Murphys has apparel & footwear for your next wine tasting adventure! Cheers to Summer 2017!

Spicer Road and Ebbetts Pass are open!

On 6/28/17, the Forest Service announced they had made repairs to Spicer Reservoir Road and that it is now open to the public for your paddling enjoyment! This is going to make for a great summer on the Hwy 4 corridor! Give SNAC Arnold a call at 209-795-9310×2 to make your summer reservations. Kayak, Canoe or SUP – your call! On 6/30/17, CalTrans announced that they had cleared the snow and made the necessary repairs to Hwy 4 and that Ebbett’s Pass is now open.

Paddling Season is Here!

We had a great Winter 2016/17 Season and are busy doing the switchover at SNAC Arnold. We’ve already received many of our 2017 Kayaks and SUPs, so if you’re looking to purchase a new Hobie Mirage Drive Kayak, now’s the time.  Thinking about stand-up paddling?  We already have our SUPs!  The lower elevation lakes are looking full – so what are you waiting for?  Boats and Boards arriving regularly….Happy Paddling!

Artists Make Plug Ugly Mine Disc Golf Course Beautiful!

Thanks to Adam Stanton for this awesome sign welcoming Disc Golfers to the new course in San Andreas. He must have heard about the Hwy 4 Disc Golf Artists who claimed 18 tone poles (recycled 7.5 gallon propane tanks) to use as their canvas for expressing what this course means. People will want to come out to Plug Ugly just to see the tone pole Art! We have professional Artist, Staria Stine with two beautiful tones “Be Inspired” and “Love Your Planet”. Tourney Players, Rob Cole and Teri Warnick and their families painted tones showing Black Bart, miners, fishermen, waterfalls and other scenes of the natural beauty that can be found in the area. There are too many great artists to name, but they shared their take on the cement plant, our local elephants at PAWS (the wildlife sanctuary in San Andreas), Basket Chains, Trees and leaves, Cala-veras (coke can style), Dis-Cover Calaveras, a wine barrel, of course, and many other Calaveras themed designs. Thanks also go out to Dan O’Boyle and Gary Herd of the Historical Society who are putting together a large sign giving us a historical perspective on the Plug Ugly Mine. What a Community effort this course has been! Come on out Labor Day weekend to check it out, and then play the Grand Opener on 9/10/16!

Spring is Perfect for Disc Golf!

Stop by SNAC Sonora, Murphys & Arnold for a great selection of everything you’ll need to get your Disc Golf game on. We stock Discs, Bags, Baskets and accessories. If you need a free map to any of our local disc golf courses – just ask! If you’re on the Sonora side, play the Three Links Course. In Murphys, check out Feeney Park and outside of Arnold, there’s White Pines. When the snow melts – head up to Bear Valley. Later this Spring we’re looking forward to finally getting to play in San Andreas at the new Plug Ugly Course. For updates, check out Hwy. 4 Disc Golf on Facebook. Play on!

SNAC is Getting Ready for Paddling Season!

If you’re in the market for a standup paddleboard – come see us as we have a great selection of sale SUPs in stock now!
