Finally, we got some much needed snow. Like most of you, I am still digging out especially when it slid off the roof.  On Monday of last week, I set up the deck furniture and told my wife that now we would get snow. Sure enough, we did and it slid off the roof and covered everything.  I’ve lived here long enough to know, but evidently not long enough to learn.

Park County got at least a path plowed for us Friday afternoon.  Thank you.

Board elections are coming up in August. There will be two positions open.  If you are interested in running for the board. Please have your letter of interest to the board by June 1st. Include in your letter a short bio of yourself, why you wish to serve on the board, and what skills you bring to board.  I ran because I feel it is important to give back to the community.  Please think about what you can give.  The candidates’ information and ballots will be printed in the summer newsletter.  You will also be able to vote at the annual meeting and picnic on August 8, 2015. If you are unsure of who to vote for or can’t attend the annual meeting and picnic, you can sign the proxy on the ballot.2012 08 10_0035

The open top dumpsters were a huge success.  They will be here again in August.

Don’t forget the chili cook off on May 10th at the pavilion.  It is always a good time to see your neighbors and taste some great chili.  Call the ranch office for more details.Bobcat

Have you ever wanted to ask an elected official a question?  Well, here’s your chance,  Mike Brazell, Park County Commissioner, will bring his Dish with the Commish to the Hartsel Community Center on April 28th at 6:30 PM.  He will provide the entrée.  You are asked to bring a side dish or dessert.

Hi Everyone, Spring has sprung and it is time to get your spring cleaning done.   The open tops

will be here from the 13th to the 16th of April. Check the Ranch Manager page to find out the do’s and don’ts regarding what you can put in them.  This is also a very good time to clean up your lots, as the burn pit is open (by the way, John needs volunteers) and you can drop off your wood debris.

On another subject, it is also a good time to think about the possibility of running for the Ranch of the Rockies Association (RORA) board of directors.  This is a good way to help your community, learn about the Ranch and help solve problems, instead of just complaining.


Did you all see the geyser to the east of Bridal Path?  There was a leak of some type in the Homestake Pipeline, which crosses the ranch where Bridal Path meets Ranch Rd the second time.  We were all fortunate the Carol Rumsey took pictures so we many of us that might not have seen it can see it here and down a few pages where it was posted.
