A tremendous tour

Dear Editor:Thanks to everyone for helping to make the first ever Town to Town Tour this past Saturday a tremendous success! First and foremost, the Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers board of directors wishes to thank the more than 300 nordic enthusiasts who skied and snowshoed the Rio Grande Trail. Second, we want to thank the 50 volunteers who worked so enthusiastically, many for a year, to bring this event to fruition. And thirdly, wed like to thank all our sponsors and donors including: Alpine Bank, Willits Town Center, Aspen Construction Group, Aspen Land & Homes/Sothebys, Aspen Snowmass Nordic Council, Pitkin County Open Space and Trails, the city of Aspen, The Aspen Times, KSPN/KSNO, Aspen Earthmoving, Newland Project Resources, Peak Party Rental, the Roaring Fork Club, and many, many others. Look for our thank-you ad listing all who contributed sometime next week.RFOV learned quite a lot in doing this event for the first time and we would like to acknowledge that we have some kinks and glitches to work out. Our wildest hopes and dreams led us to prepare for 150 to 200 people, but by the morning of the event, we had 219 registrations double what we had two days before. By noon Saturday, we realized we had well over 300. We ask all the participants to give us their feedback so that next year we can do an even better job at putting on the tour. Please go to our website http://www.rfov.org or e-mail us at rfov@sopris.net.We hope the many happy faces we saw all along the 14.6 mile course will return again next year and bring their friends who missed a great time. Thank you EVERYONE for a spectacular day on the Rio Grande Trail!Michael Thompson and the RFOV Board of DirectorsBasalt
