Happy New Year, readers!

Time to get on the treadmill and stick to those resolutions, at least for a week or two.

I don’t know about you, but we’re still resting up and getting back into the swing of things after a fun-filled holiday vacation.

So, some chill entertainment this weekend fits the bill for rest and recuperation.

■ Sit back and enjoy the soothing sounds of some music.

The Craig Variety Show brings it to you from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Veterans of Foreign Wars, 419 E. Victory Way.

The show might include songs, poetry and storytelling. You can be part of the show, too. Just call Bill Ronis at 620-6589 to join the roster.

■ Bring on the bingo.

Join the American Legion Post 62 for bingo fun on Saturday night at the Elks Lodge, 43 W. Victory Way.

Doors open at 5 p.m. and games begin at 6:15 p.m.

Call Mel Shockley at 824-3625 to get more details.

■ Holla for some hoops as the Moffat County High School Bulldogs face Glenwood Springs at home on Saturday.

Girls JV plays at 11 a.m., boys JV at 12:30 p.m., girls varsity at 2 p.m. and boys varsity at 3:30 p.m. at the high school, 900 Finley Lane.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for students.

■ Get your learning on with two classes this week.

Colorado State Parks and the Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club host free Avalanche Awareness sessions at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday in the auditorium at Moffat County High School, 900 Finley Lane.

Then there’s a field session at 9 a.m. Saturday at Black Mountain, leaving from the Freeman Reservoir parking lot.

Courtesy sound checks on snowmobiles will take place at the Freeman parking lot that morning.

Learn a new language with the start of free classes this week.
