Sign up your team for local softball tourneys

Softball players interested in organizing teams to play in local tournaments which traditionally draw teams from around the Four Corners region will have two chances to submit rosters during the coming weeks.

The first of a pair of upcoming tournaments is the annual American Legion Tournament, which will be held this weekend, July 11 and 12, at the high school baseball complex.

The tournament usually features a double-elimination format for men’s teams only; for more information on this tournament, contact Julian Archuleta at 264-4309.

The second tournament is annual the Softball Blowout, which is in its 27th year and features double-elimination brackets for men’s and women’s teams.

This tournament will be held at the high school sports complex Aug. 7 and 8; teams interested in submitting rosters for this tournament can contact Sue Jones at 264-2642 through the end of this month.

Fireworks

The Town of Pagosa Springs fireworks staff would like to thank everyone who made the Fourth of July holiday a true success.

Thanks go out to the school district, fire department, local law enforcement agencies and EMS staff, as well as the countless volunteers who donated their time this year.

Also, we give special thanks to all of the businesses and citizens who donated monetarily to the fireworks fund. Thanks again to each and every one for the generous commitment of time and resources.
