Cottonwoods and willows reach toward the skies across the nine holes of Fallon Golf Course, their towering branches providing natural evidence of the course's 55-year history. Adding to the scenery is the Carson River, which runs alongside the course, providing a home to wildlife such as white egrets, cottontails, and quails. The river flows beside the third hole and cuts directly in front of the second green, while a smaller waterway cuts the fairways on holes five and seven. Before rounds, golfers can warm up at a practice green or stop by the driving range to pick up tees, dip them in bronze, and sew them into an intimidating sweater vest.

Home Fusion travels to clients' homes toting an assortment of materials and apparatuses for a three-hour glass-jewelry-making class, enabling attendants to craft their own, sand-based bobbles. Gather three friends, family members, or identical clones, and learn the art of glass fusing alongside Home Fusions' experienced artisan. Accessorizers manufacture an original piece from a selection of glasses, utilizing a slew of specialized equipment, including glasscutters and breakers. Once the hand-made ornaments are assembled, the Fusion host cements the shape and style of the collection in a portable kiln, before finishing them in-studio to ensure each piece properly cools and refrains from roughhousing with careless stone pendants. All participants receive their hand-crafted trinkets the following day.
