The Sunlight Ski Team will be hosting a major USSA Open Class regional race at Sunlight Mountain Resort on Saturday and volunteers are needed.

Gate keepers are volunteers who monitor racers at two to three gates during races, reporting disqualifications or faults to the head gatekeeper.

The team is in need of 10 volunteers to arrive at 8 a.m., head up to Joslin’s Run and monitor two runs of the slalom. This will take all day and you will be provided a sack lunch, compliments of the Sunlight Winter Sports Club and Subway. You will also receive a lift ticket for another day.

Be prepared to stand on the course for the day and monitor up to 150 of the region’s top racers.

Call or talk to Bob Lockard at 618-2101 if you can help out. This is a major fundraising event for the team and helps keep fees down.

Glenwood Springs High School’s spring sports meeting is scheduled for Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. at the school.

Athletes will need a current physical, online paperwork and fee before practicing. The online paperwork can be filled out at under the athletic tab on the right-hand side of the page.

The Aspen Mother Puckers B team lost one game and tied one in Steamboat Springs last weekend.

The MP2 were defeated by the 2009 league champion Storm last Friday night at Howelson Arena, 5-2.

Goals were scored by Gina Guarascio, on an assist by Erica Delak, both of Aspen, and team captain Julie Cox, of Blue Lake, unassisted.

Steamboat outshot the Puckers, 39-23, in shots on net, with Margo Cuttita of Lazy Glen tending goal.

The next morning, the Puckers scored early against the Bobcats when Deanne Kessler of Woody Creek netted a pass from Guarascio in the first period.

It looked like the Puckers would end their losing streak with a win, but they had to settle for a tie after Steamboat pulled their goalie for a man-advantage and put one in with 20 seconds to go in the game, bringing the final score to 1-all.

Cuttita stopped 13 of 14 shots on goal for Aspen.
