Registration open for Moffat County Youth Wrestling
Registration is now open for Moffat County Youth Wrestling’s season. The program is offered for boys and girls ages 6 to 12 to learn and grow in the sport.
MCYW, initially open for ages 4 to 14, changed its age requirements this year, though athletes who competed last year aged 4, 5, 12 or 13 are still eligible.
Eligibility is based on a child’s age as of April 7, 2018.

Official practices begin the week of March 26, with the junior team for ages 6 to 8 working Mondays and Wednesdays and senior team 9 to 12 Tuesdays and Thursdays at Craig Middle School, 915 Yampa Ave.
Meets will begin in April and will include a home event hosted by MCYW.
Costs includes $40 for the program — with discounts for siblings — a $30 pre-registration tournament fee for the season — not including the MCYW home event, free to members — and a $50 refundable deposit for equipment.

Organizers will host an official registration event from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 20 at Craig City Hall Council Chambers, 300 W. Fourth St. Parents are asked not to mail or drop off registration materials to City Hall at any other time.

Shotgun shooters welcome for Craig Trap Club’s Polar Bear League season
Craig Trap Club’s Polar Bear League runs through March 31 for shotgun shooters at US Highway 40 and Moffat County Road 64.
Sessions are twice weekly at 10 a.m. Sundays or 6 p.m. Thursdays.
Daytime shoots involve fluorescent orange targets, while evening activities use white targets under spotlights.
Polar Bear sessions are open to individuals and families with a $60 registration fee for the league, with practice rounds $5 for club members and $6 for non-members.
A full league shooting includes 300 total targets — 100 from the 16-yard line for handicap classification, 100 more from either the 20- or 25-yard line and another 100 from 16. Shooting can be done all in one day or throughout the season.
CTC can help newcomers with equipment, though shooters need to buy their own ammunition as well as have proper ear protection, safety glasses and ammo pouches.
