Women-only Cast Blast and Twang coming from CPW
Colorado Parks and Wildlife will host a Cast Blast and Twang to teach fishing and shooting protocol on June 28 in Granby.
CPW hosts similar events across the state each year, but the upcoming one in Granby is for women only "to keep up with the growing number of women wishing to hunt and fish," according to a news release.
It will offer lessons on the basics of fly-fishing, archery and safe use of shotguns. No experience or equipment in hunting or fishing is required, but a fishing license is needed.
For more information, contact the CPW office in Hot Sulphur Springs at 970-725-6200.
Free summer soccer camp at Sawer Soccer Park
Bill Sawer will host a free youth summer soccer camp and league at his fields throughout the summer.
The camp has weekly practices for beginners and more advanced players, along with a refereed game each Wednesday. Sawer said he designed the schedule so players could participate in Parks and Recreation games on the other days of the week and still take part in the weekly games at his park.
Practices for beginners ages 10 and younger are from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays at the Sawer Soccer Park on West First Street. The advanced practice for players as old as age 14 are at the same time Thursdays. Players can show up whenever they want.
Players are encouraged to bring shinguards but no soccer cleats. Sawer has extra equipment available to use for those without shinguards.
Parks and Rec Football getting started
The Craig Parks and Recreation youth tackle football season is around the corner.
The leagues for third- through sixth-graders have weekly games and practices at Woodbury Sports Complex beginning in August. Registration is open now at the Parks and Recreation office, 300 W. Fourth St. or on the Parks and Rec website.
For more information about the league or to become a coach or official, call Dave Pike at 970-826-2006.
