Saturday was a great day for the 2011 Aspen Yacht Club “Club Regatta” on Ruedi Reservoir. There were 23 boats racing in three classes – PHRF Fleet, Cruising Fleet and Sunfish Fleet – and three races were held for each Fleet. Margot Pendleton, of Basalt, won the PHRF class and the Oscar Haberman Trophy; Terry Bannon, of Carbondale, in full “pirate gear,” won the Cruising Class; and Courtney Sheeley, of Aspen, took the Sunfish honors.

Students representing Aspen, Basalt and New Castle Soo Bahk Do studios put on an excellent demonstration of their art recently for guest testing board members Kris Poole from Texas, James Donnelly from Virginia and Fred Messersmith from California. The Sa Bom Nims were here for the annual Technical Advisory Tour that is held at Mount Sopris Ranch. The students demonstrated their techniques for their next belt level in forms, sparring, sparring combinations and board breaking. The studios they represent are part of the Rocky Mountain Martial Arts.
