Tonopah Conversation Camp Stays!

The Nevada State Legislature on Tuesday morning answered once and for all the question of funding for the Tonopah Conversation Camp (TCC) for the next two years when the joint sub-committee closed the budget for the Department of Corrections with full funding restored to TCC. No further changes to the budget can be made.

The fight to keep the camp open, which services a large area of Central Nevada and includes Tonopah as well as many other rural communities, began last July when residents were first informed of the slated closure of the camp.

Jim Butler Days and the Nevada State Mining Championships

The Nevada State Championship Mining Competition begins at the Mining Park right after the Jim Butler Day Parade on Saturday morning, May 23, 2009. This will be a one day event featuring both professional and amateur competitions. This is a jackpot contest. Winners will receive cash awards. All are invited and everyone is encouraged to enter as a single or a team member. There are contests for adults and children alike.

The winners of these Nevada preliminary contests will vie for the World Championship titles to be held in Carson City after the October 31st Nevada Day Parade. These contests reflects the early day mining technique of drilling holes for dynamite charges in the mining process as well as clearing the overburden by shoveling the muck out to be loaded on ore cars and removed from the site.

The mining competitions are exciting and fast moving. Competitions are held at the Tonopah Historic Mining Park on the hillside in back of the Mizpah Hotel. The mining park is open free of charge during Jim Butler Weekend. Bring the whole family. Make a weekend excursion into the past.
