Piers Lamb, who may be best known in the valley as a musician, is also youth programs coordinator at the Blaine County Recreation District.

He's been with the organization for nearly two years and is involved in many events at the Community Campus in Hailey, both inside and outdoors.

This season he will oversee First Friday concerts at the HUB, in which a local youth band will "come and rock the joint," he said. "This is a middle school party for middle school students only."

Cost is $2 admission, and pizza and drinks are available for purchase. Shows will run from 7-9:30 p.m.

Last year there were often as many as 50 kids attending the First Friday concerts.

"I'm constantly trying to bring in new and exciting activities to this valley, and am really excited about some of these new programs coming up," Lamb said.

Among the programs is the Mommy 'n' Me music classes with Tom Nash for kids ages 2 and a half and younger. The class will be held every Wednesday at 9:15 a.m. beginning Oct. 1. Classes will be held at the Community Campus in Room 903. Space is limited to the first 20 to register.

The BCRD/Mountain Sun Lanes Youth Bowling League will start Saturday, Nov. 8, at 10 a.m. and will run for six weeks. The league is open to kids in first through 12th grades. There will be coaching to learn the fundamentals of bowling. Sanctioned by the United States Bowling Congress, there will also be a chance to compete in regional tournaments.

The Bearcat Bowl Flag Football Tourney will take place Saturday, Oct. 11, at O'Donnell Park at the mouth of Slaughterhouse Canyon in Bellevue. This is a double elimination adult flag football tournament open to anyone 18 years and older. Teams may have up to 10 players and the cost is $120 per team. There is still room for more teams, but register soon as space is limited.

The KidZone After School Kids Camp is open to kids in first through fifth grades and will run from 3-6 p.m. at the HUB.

The second Annual Battle of the Bands will be held Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. in the Community Campus theater. It is open to any school-age musicians or bands

"Each band will play between three and four songs on Craig Campbell's large and in-charge concert system," Lamb said. "It's the real deal."
