Basalt Recreation would like to extend a thank-you to all our wonderful volunteer basketball coaches who dedicate so much of their time through the winter to teach our youth the game of basketball during our Instructional League season.

Thank you to Eric Vozick, Karen Baxter, Gregg Adams, Brian Dillard, John Ward, Debbie Alcorta, Nick Soho, Jerry Evert, Jeff Lumsden, Doug Olson, Peter Hawkins, Lindsey Soucie and Bill Toney.

Thank you to all the parents who helped out and for getting the kids to practices and games on time. Thanks to the players for a great, enjoyable season.

Finally, thanks to our referee coordinator, Katie King, and our referees for bringing their expertise to the games. It was a fun season.

We at CARE want to thank all the volunteers, participants and sponsors that made our Third annual Poochie Poker Run held March 19 a huge success.

First and foremost, we would like to thank Sunlight Mountain Resort for being such a gracious and accommodating host for our event. Particular recognition is also due to Dylan Lewis, the sales and marketing manager for Sunlight Mountain Resort.

Many thanks are also due to our various sponsors and donors of prizes for the Poochie Poker Run, including Swire Pacific Coca-Cola, restaurant owners Mark and Lari Fisher, Zheng Asian Bistro, The Booktrain and Impression Designs.

Despite the challenging weather conditions, the Poochie Poker Run was a successful, fun and rewarding event for all those involved this year.

CARE staff brought several adoptable dogs to the event, and we were able to adopt out four puppies and one adult dog.

Once again, thank you to all the individuals who made our fundraiser a smashing success. We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Basalt Boy Scout Venture Crew 242 would like to thank the Mount Sopris Recreational Riders snowmobile club for helping put on a snowmobile outing for the crew on March 13. We all had an amazing trip riding on trails in the Four Mile area. The snow was great, and we had a good group. For some of us, it was a completely new experience, and we’ll all enjoy our fun memories for a long time. We really appreciate the Mount Sopris Recreational Riders for making our outing possible.
