Dear Editor:On Monday, Crystal River Meats hosted the Free Range Open golf tournament to benefit GrassRoots Community TV at the Roaring Fork Club Golf Course. It was a spectacular day for golf. Everyone had a great time. We’d like to thank everyone who participated in making this tournament a success. The Free Range Open helped raise critically needed funds to help GrassRoots Community TV continue operation through the end of the year.
