Letter: A great tournament

As a member of this community, I would like to say what an amazing event the Aspen Lax Jam was this past weekend. Eighty teams, more than 1,k000 people and 10,000 smiles were my counts over the weekend.

I would like to thank all the kids who played, the parents who watched and supported lacrosse and the coaches who spent their weekend making this event happen. Special thanks to John Silich for being a major sponsor and all the parents who came early and stayed late to help with trash, tables and many other things. Thank you to Mike Goerne for putting in two 12-hour days, and the most special thank-you to Meredith Elwell Sauder for being the queen mother of lacrosse in this valley. She was able to make this tournament move along like a well-oiled machine, and for that the valley thanks you! Lacrosse has come a long way in the past 20 years thanks in large part to these people. Congrats to all the teams that won!
