Weekend Roundup: Spartan soccer, superb sheepdogs and the Lebowski legend

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

This weekend is all about watching, and whether you’ve got your eyes focused on a soccer game, a goat or calf getting roped, dogs performing farm tasks, birds in their natural habitat or a movie that’s only become more popular 18 years later, you’re guaranteed to have some fun in Northwest Colorado.

What a kick

Colorado Northwestern Community College’s Craig campus embarks on its first official athletic teams this weekend as men’s and women’s soccer open their seasons against Salt Lake Community College with four games across Friday and Saturday.

The Spartans will play all their home games at Loudy-Simpson Park, with no charge for admission. CNCC hopes to turn the inaugural season into a big event and are also seeking for volunteers 9 or older to aid in keeping track of game balls, as well as looking for interested parties to provide halftime entertainment for future games.

Come join the start of a whole new program in Craig.

Get along, little doggies

The 30th annual Meeker Classic Sheepdog Championship Trials have already begun this week, but there’s still plenty of time to view the working dogs in action Friday through Sunday.

Border collies and their handlers from around the globe compete for a huge cash prize doing what they do best by herding sheep as spectators view. The crowds can also enjoy a full day of activities, ranging from the food and craft festival to the art show to dog agility demonstrations to Friday’s free film screening and a free Saturday concert by Dave Munsick and Gary McMahan, ending Sunday with the awards for the top dog.

One last note: please leave your own canines at home.

A “Wii Bowling” tournament is offered, as well as a costume contest, and best of all, this year is free of charge, so don’t stress about the money, Dude.
