Tim Mikulecky

Tim started water skiing at age 9, and by 12 was water skiing, performing and acting in live ski shows with his team "The Minnieska Whitewater Ski Team" in Whitewater WI.  Tim later turned pro and began skiing for Sea World at 18.  By 1995, water-ski shows started to evolve into stunt shows, and this is when he was offered a position to open the Water World Stunt Show at Universal Studios Hollywood.  He spent 10 years there, working on his craft and slowly transitioning into film and Television.
Tim now has hundreds of credits, including Batman "The Dark Knight Rises", Televisions shows including all 9 seasons of CSI New York, 24 with Kiefer Sutherland, and Heroes.
Tim has also coordinated music videos for artists including Cold Play, Beyonce, and Post Malone.
With the Screen Actors Guild on strike, Tim was kind enough to make the trip here to speak to our club!

2023 Sparks Rotary Poker Tournament & Art School
We had a great turnout at Hidden Valley Country Club for our annual Poker Tournament/Fundraiser. The food and beverages were great and for those non-poker players among us we were pleased to have Painting With April on board this year. Art class was in session!
We would like extend a huge thank you to our poker tournament sponsors and players for helping out with this fundraiser. Having fun and giving back to the community is what it's all about at the Rotary Club of Sparks! Please click the button below to view all of the photos from this year's tournament.

Thank you to the City of Sparks, The Reno Rodeo Association, The Ozmen Foundation and of course, the members of Sparks Rotary for making this dream a reality.
Kids' Free Fishing Day has been a tradition with Sparks Rotary going on 21 years! Every second week in June we host two separate days of fishing at the Sparks Marina. The first day is reserved for all area adaptive youth while the second day is open to all area youth. Our Rotarians and other members of the community provide coaching and support to area youth who would like to learn how to fish and spend some time in the outdoors of Nevada. All fishing gear and food is provided free to the participants. We'd like to extend a special thank you to the team from the Nevada Department of Wildlife for all of their support of this event!
