Mother Nature has not been so kind this year, however, and the snowmobile poker runs at both Lake Almanor and Lake Davis have been rescheduled due to lack of snow.
 
The Snowmobile Poker run at Lake Almanor has been rescheduled to March 1.
 
The Rotary Snowmobile Poker run at Lake Davis has been moved to Feb. 22. 
 
Both events have been moved in hopes of additional snow, with winter storms predicted for the coming weeks.
