Youth soccer season gearing up

Youth soccer rosters for all divisions have been finalized and coaches are in the process of contacting their team members.

Practices have begun at the elementary school and Yamaguchi Park fields, and parents who have not heard from a head coach by Monday should call the recreation office to obtain roster information.

Schedules for all divisions will be available by Friday afternoon at the recreation office in Town Hall and will also be available online at www.townofpagosasprings.com; games will not begin until Sept. 7.

Games will be played Monday through Thursday. There will be no games scheduled on Saturdays unless absolutely needed in order to make up rain-out dates.

Games for the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions have been scheduled for Mondays and Wednesdays at the elementary school soccer fields, while the 9-10 and 11-12 divisions will play Tuesdays and Thursdays at Yamaguchi Park on South 5th Street.

However, since teams from Dulce, N.M. will again be included in the league, local teams in the 5-6 and 7-8 divisions will occasionally play Thursdays against Dulce at the elementary school; the 9-10 division will always play Thursdays against Dulce at Yamaguchi Park (there is no 11-12 from Dulce participating this year).

For more information call 264-4151, Ext. 231 or 232.

Anglers’ roundtable

The next in a series of anglers’ roundtables is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 4, at 8 a.m. in the Buffalo Inn on North Pagosa Boulevard.

There is no charge for admission; just pay for your breakfast and coffee, and then spend the morning exchanging fishing tales with your peers. Since the meeting will be an open forum, anglers are welcome to discuss strategies, recipes and hot spots, and are welcome to bring their favorite lures and gear for show and trade.

Reservations are not required, but anyone interested in attending can contact Gary Gray at 731-0739 or 749-3210 to help the hosts plan.

Potential attendees (or anyone interested in hosting a future forum) can also contact Gray by e-mail at gary053@centurytel.net.

Fountain

The Town of Pagosa Springs is accepting tax-deductible donations to be used for the maintenance and extended operation of the pump for Pinon Lake Fountain.

Donations in any amount will be accepted at the front desk in Town Hall; checks and money orders can be made payable to Town of Pagosa Springs with “fountain” on the subject line.

For those interested in mailing a contribution, donations should be addressed “Attention: Fountain” and mailed to P.O. Box 1859, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147. If you would like to make a cash donation, please do so in person at the front desk in Town Hall.

The fountain is now running daily from about dawn until dusk, and is tentatively scheduled to run through the end of August, due to generous donations from Wyndham Resorts, Archuleta County and the public.
