Adult basketball managers’ meeting Feb. 25

An organizational meeting for all managers who registered teams for this year’s adult basketball leagues will be held Thursday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m. in Town Hall.

The meeting will last about an hour and will address league schedules, game venues, rule changes and tournament dates. All team managers should attend, if possible.

Managers are reminded that team registration fees are $250 per team, plus a $30 fee per player. Players are eligible to participate in this year’s league if they will be 16 years of age or older as of March 1. The leagues are tentatively scheduled to begin the first week of March.

Call the recreation office at 264-4151, Ext. 231, for more information.

Cross-country skiing

Thanks to the efforts of the Pagosa Nordic Club, cross-country skiing trails are being groomed regularly on Reservoir Hill, in Town Park and in Yamaguchi Park to offer a variety of Nordic skiing opportunities in downtown Pagosa Springs.

Skate pond

The skate pond at the River Center is open for the season. The hours of operation are from dawn to 10 p.m. every day, except on those nights when ice-maintenance operations are being performed.

Resurfacing will be scheduled for Monday and Thursday evenings unless weather conditions keep the work from taking place. On those nights, the pond will be closed at 6 p.m. A minimum ice thickness of four inches will be regularly monitored, but thin spots can occur, and an effort to mark them with orange safety cones will be made.

Pond users are requested to leave the cones in place. We also ask that no foreign objects be thrown onto the ice. The pond will remain open until safety concerns require its closure. Enjoy the ice.
