The Aspen High School football team is heading to Wyoming this summer.

That’s the Wyoming Football Camp, actually.

Coach Ryan Triece, the reigning Western Slope League coach of the year, said the Skiers will go to the Wyoming camp partly because of the school schedule.

“It should be a great experience for us. There will be teams from Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota and Colorado,” Triece said of the summer football camp in Laramie.

But to get to Wyoming, the Skiers have to raise travel money and camp fees.

Enter the fourth annual Aspen Skier Gridiron Classic benefit golf tournament, scheduled for Saturday, June 6, at the Aspen Golf Course.

Triece, an AHS business teacher and head football coach, will be the tournament director for the 2015 fundraiser.

He said the tournament will be a four-person scramble with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Entry includes carts, range balls, player gift bags and on-course beverage service. In addition, lunch is provided in the clubhouse after the tournament.

Awards will be given to the top teams.

There will be prizes for closest to pin, longest drive and longest putt.

Entry fee is $175 per player or $600 per team.

Triece said the benefit golf tournament is a great opportunity to help out the Aspen High School football program.

Sponsorship opportunities also are available for the benefit tournament.
