Rifle’s A.J. Cordova was inadvertently omitted from Tuesday’s Post Independent article about the Warrior Classic wrestling tournament. The senior Bear placed fifth in the 170-pound division, going 3-2 at the Friday-Saturday invitational in Grand Junction.

After receiving a first-round bye, Cordova won a pair of matches in the championship bracket. After a defeat in the semifinals, he dropped into the consolation bracket and split two matches to place fifth.

The free throw contest is open to boys and girls in the following age groups: 8-9, 10-11, 12-13.

The Town to Town Tour is returning to the Roaring Fork Valley on Saturday, Jan. 21.

The event is the only long-distance, non-competitive Nordic event of the year, and is a benefit for Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV), which conducts trail building and conservation projects on the valley’s public lands throughout the spring, summer and fall.

The Tour will start at the Rio Grande Plaza in Aspen at 10 a.m. and finish in downtown Basalt, with an end-of-tour party hosted by RFOV and local Basalt restaurants. Participants can either cross-country ski or snowshoe the 19-mile Rio Grande Trail, with an alternate start Woody Creek (11.5-mile course) and the first-ever start at Old Snowmass (3.5-mile course).

Refreshments are provided along the way. Free shuttles will be provided and crossing guards assist skiers and snowshoers on the course.

In years past, RFOV has had more than 350 participants.

All levels and ages are encouraged to participate. Early registration entrance fees are $30 for individuals and $50 for families/partners, $40 for individuals and $65 for families/partners, and $20 for the party only on the day of the event.

Volunteers are still needed. To register or volunteer, go to http://www.rfov.org, email rfov@sopris.net, or call 927-8241.
