After much consideration, we’ve decided to cancel the Red Feather Open (July 7-8) this year due to complications caused by the High Park Fire. All registered players will receive a full refund of their entry fee.
I apologize for the short notice, but after a lot of waiting and hoping, we feel this is the wisest course of action at this juncture. After the fire jumped the Poudre River (Hwy 14) this last weekend and destroyed many homes in the Glacier View area, near the Red Feather Road (CR 74E) and Sundance Trail DGC, holding the tournament became impractical. The Red Feather Road has been re-opened the last I heard, but there are sections where cars are only being allowed through with escorts. (In other words, if you don’t have a really good reason to travel that road, you probably shouldn’t) Hopefully the situation will improve, but if the fire flairs up again like last weekend, that road could easily be fully closed again. I spoke to Dan (Sundance Trail owner) and it was clear that they are very busy with their precautionary preparations and Frisbee golf is the last thing they need to think about at this time. Beaver Meadows remains open and well clear and safe from the fire, but the logistics of getting everyone there, with the main road in doubt, is still a major issue. In addition, both courses are in need of some substantial work to get them tourney-ready and because of road closures and everything, I have been unable to get up there to see to that. The fire and related issues could persist for the rest of the summer, and given the number of CO tournaments already on the schedule later in the season, we feel that a postponement is unrealistic. Hopefully all will be well with the fire and the courses and the RFO will return next year better than ever!
In the absence of the RFO, we will be holding a fundraiser event on Saturday, July 7th, at Edora Park in Fort Collins with all proceeds going to benefit the victims of the fire, and the ongoing fight against it. I’ll have more details about the event soon, but it should be a fun time and this is a way for the disc golf community to have a positive impact on this sad situation. I hope that everyone who planned to attend the RFO and many more can make it out and help us raise some funds.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. Thanks!
