Craig Sports Briefs for July 25, 2015: Local hunters, anglers invited to Sportsmen’s Roundtable
Area sportsmen and women are invited to meet and discuss hunting and fishing issues with their citizen representatives during the Northwest Region Sportsmen’s Roundtable caucus, which takes place at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Blue Valley Sportsman Club, located at Milepost 128.1 on Colorado Highway 9, about 11 miles south of Kremmling.
Colorado Parks & Wildlife formed the Sportsmen’s Roundtable in 2012 in a continuing effort to provide hunters and anglers with opportunities to submit input about wildlife management decisions. Consisting of elected and appointed delegates from each of the state’s four wildlife management regions, the groups collect input from constituents in a variety of ways, including public meetings. The information will be sent to CPW’s leadership at the statewide Sportsmen’s Roundtable meetings, held twice yearly, the next one of which will be Aug. 22 in Buena Vista.
Topics include CPW’s 2015 Strategic Plan, the West Slope Mule Deer Strategy and ideas and concepts for generating revenue. There is no limit to participation, and no active hunter or angler will be excluded from the discussion.

Registration still open for ‘over-the-line’ tourney
As part of Moffat County Balloon Festival, Craig residents will be hosting a tournament of the game “over-the-line” Aug. 1 and 2 at Loudy-Simpson Park.
Originally created by Old Mission Beach Athletic Club, over-the-line is a variation of bat and ball games like baseball and softball that involves three-person teams.
Hitters do not run any bases, and the field consists of a triangle in place of home plate and a rectangle for fielders.
For a full explanation of the setup and rules, visit http://www.ombac.org/over-the-line/otl-rules-of-the-game.
Local organizers are seeking as many teams as possible for three divisions: co-ed, women and youth ages 12 to 15. Teams consist of a captain, two players and an optional substitute.
