Thirty-three young Cub Scouts attended a joint meeting of the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts on Sept. 27. Cup Scout pack leader Eric Pedersen and adult members of the Cub and Boy Scout troops reviewed with attending Cub Scout parents the organization of the scouting experience. Scouting is a family business, and both parents and Scouts interact to gain the training and experiences of scouting from age 6 – 18. Young men are encouraged to join pack 225. Call Eric if you need more information 945-8276.

Grand River Hospital District CEO Jim Coombs is pictured with 4-H participant Bryer Rew. Grand River Hospital District purchased Bryer’s 1,302-pound steer Bandit at the 2011 Garfield County Fair. This was Bryer’s first year participating in 4-H. When asked about his favorite part of the program, Bryer smiled and said he enjoyed washing Bandit and learning about responsibility. Bryer is looking forward to participating in 4H again next year. In addition to raising another steer, he’d also like to raise a goat and participate in horse events in 2012. Congratulations Bryer on a job well done.

The Aspen Yacht Club celebrated “Talk Like A Pirate Day” on Saturday, Sept. 24, with a “Pirate Party” and “Pirate Poker Run” on Ruedi Reservoir. Twenty-eight AYC members dressed the pirate part and decorated their boats, for a fast lap around Ruedi Reservoir, collecting a poker card, and having mock-battles with water-cannons and water-balloon grenades. A pirate happy hour/raffle (for pirate booty) and dinner followed the sailing fun on the reservoir. Fifty-three AYC pirates and families feasted on smoked pork loin, beef tri-tip, roasted chicken, red-skin potatoes, grilled asparagus and pirate desserts. The evening ended with the AYC pirates watching the movie “Yellowbeard,” to end their pirate-rich day. Sunday was a great Colorado fall day to finish the 2011 Aspen Yacht Club member’s club race season, with warm temperatures and steady winds – a sailor’s delight.
