Full steam ahead for fall sports

Dear Editor:

The Aspen High School Booster Club would like to thank everyone who helped make Homecoming Week so special at Aspen High School. The enthusiasm and spirit of entire community was greatly appreciated.

The bonfire Wednesday at the corner of Cooper and Galena attracted a crowd of more than 300 people. It was wonderful to see the community celebrate all of our fall student athletes. Thanks to Klaus Obermeyer, who opened the bonfire with a victory yodel. Special thanks to Harald Neuweg of the Wienerstube for donating strudel for the bonfire and Student Field Day. Thank you to Paradise Bakery for their generous cookie donation. Thank you to Stephanie Swim and Aspen Caterers for the hot chocolate preparation. Thank you to the city of Aspen, Randy Ready, Steve “Jaws” Jaworski and Nancy Lesley for helping set up the bonfire on Wednesday evening. Thank you to the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department for monitoring the fire and Patrice and Mark Thomas for providing the firewood. Thank you to the newly formed Student Booster Club for helping set up and clean up after the bonfire.

The homecoming football game on Friday was truly a community event; more than 2,500 people came out and supported the Skiers. Thanks to Mark Lampe and the Maroon Creek Club for providing the golf carts for the Homecoming Court. Thanks to Penny Richey and Balloon Affairs. Thank you to KSNO and KSPN for their willingness to support school and community events on air.

There are still many weeks left to come support our student athletes. The golf team is participating in the state golf tournament this weekend, girls volleyball continues through Oct. 22, boys tennis through Oct. 16, boys soccer Oct. 19, cross country continues through October. Come support the cross country Skiers at the Chris Severy Invitational Saturday, Oct. 9. The football team has two more home games, Oct. 15 and Nov. 5. The football team will play five more away games, including No. 10-ranked Coal Ridge, which is also undefeated at this time. Full athletic schedules are available online at aspenk12.net.

We hope to see you next year at all the homecoming events. In the meantime, please check the Aspen School District calendar at aspenk12.net to see what athletics, art shows, plays and club events are going on at the elementary, middle and high schools. We have a talented group of students in our school system; the community is always invited to come support the endeavors of our students.
