Welcome to RORA

Updates on the 5th and 20th

Posted By: Tom : September 20, 2017 8:42 AM

It is hard to believe, but September is here! The fall aspen leaves are in full color, and Monday morning we awoke to snow on the Mosquito Range and Mt. Sherman. Oh, the joys of living above 9000 feet and in heaven on earth. (I feel that way until I try to bake something.) By the end of this week, our highs are forecast in the 50s and fall will have officially arrived with the autumnal equinox.

It seems that only last week that we gathered for the annual picnic. The food was wonderful and the company was even better. It is such a treat to come together with friends, neighbors, and families. This year was also special because of the extra ice cream social event on Friday evening and the games Saturday afternoon. Once again, I want to say thank you to Ed Hart, former Member-At-Large, Niki Griffin, John Adams, Ranch Manager, and the committee of planners and “worker bees” for your efforts and hard work for the Ranch and the Annual Picnic weekend.

Finally, the Board of Directors continues to work for you. Since the August meeting and picnic, we met in a Special Meeting to elect officers, and the regular meeting on September 9th. We are also preparing for work sessions to review our operating documents and procedures. At the regular meeting, there were over a dozen folks who came to provide comments and input for consideration. This made for a lively, collaborative meeting that included positive contributions from all. That is exactly the way our meetings should be. We understand that many cannot participate in person. However, we encourage you to use the RORA Forum online, and our emails to make sure we continue to hear your voice.

Missing Some Pages in Your New Directory???

Posted By: Tom : September 12, 2017 9:51 AM

Members who picked up a copy of the new 2017 RORA directory may choose either of two options to receive the missing pages in the center of the book.

1.  Write your last name and phone number on the outside front cover of the book, and drop it off at the Ranch Office by Saturday, September 16.  Carole Smith will take these directories to the printer and have the missing pages stapled in. You will then be notified when your book is ready.


2. Wait about two weeks and pick up the missing pages at the Ranch Office and put them inside your directory yourself. If you have already left the Ranch without the missing pages, send an email to Carole Smith at the following address, and request the missing pages by mail.

In the Septembers Board of Directors meeting, held on September 9th, the Board of Directors reviewed and discussed the Community Center Survey results and voted unanimously to disband the Community Center Committee and stop any further feasibility study on a Community Center.

I want to thank everyone that helped out with the Community Center Committee.

Please help us find our baby girl husky. She got loose today (Sept/8)and we are very worried because she has not returned home. She is a year old. She is mostly black with white legs, face and tummy. She does have a mask around her blue eyes.She weighs about 50 lbs. Her name is Seraphina which means “Face of an Angel”and she is very sweet and friendly. She loves attention. We live at 25 Harness Way .

Please help us find our litte girl. I am so afraid she will get hurt or lost!!She does have a name tag. She is spayed and is up to date with her shots.

We would appreciate any help you can give us!!!! Thank you.

Wow September is already here and you can notice the chill in the night air.                            

We are already having frost on the windshields and if you have not noticed it, the aspen are already changing. Although it’s been a busy Summer we are now getting ready for the fall and winter. To all the folks that have campers out on their lots please know that October is just around the corner and all campers have to be off vacant land lots by the 1st of October so  please make plans accordingly.  You can get a two week winter camping permit from the Ranch office however Park County still requires a permit through them.

The Reservoir has been restocked and we have had a lot of folks fishing it during Labor Day weekend. I would like to remind folks of the rules for fishing there, You must have a permit from the ranch you do not need a state fishing license and you can only fish from the bank please no wading no float tubes or canoes. Pets must be on a leash and are not permitted in the water. The limit is four gish this year and next year it will change to a limit of two fish per day.

I am hearing a lot of questions about why Road and Bridge is not taking better care of the roads out here and I can only say this, I have seen them working on other roads in Park County that are far worse than ours and they too need to be repaired and maintained. Please be patient they will get to them in time.

Burn Pit is filling up quick and I would like to thank all the volunteers this year for making it less stressful by calling up or stopping by the office to sign up. I would like to keep it open as long as possible and allow folks to access it as long as we can .

Let us have a great fall season and I am looking for some photos of the fall colors.
