Well, here we are wondering where all the snow went this winter. I suppose it’s all back east. Actually, Buffalo Pass is doing just fine and I don’t mind not having to plow it out of the way. Snowmobiles still have a great place to play and hey, gas prices are the lowest they’ve been in decades.
This weekend coming up is the Ron Sessions Memorial Ice Golf Tournament which is held on the Walden Resevoir. Thirty six holes (occasionally there could be an extra one for those that remember). Anyway, 90 teams compete for the best score and proceeds from the event go to the sponsor of the event, the Jackson County Lions Club. They use the funds for scholarships and to assist with eye care for individuals in need.
Then of course, February 7th is the Delaney Buttes Ice Fishing Contest where hundreds of ice holes will be drilled to find the prize fish of the day. The North Park Area Chamber of Commerce sponsors the event and is sporting a $1000 Grand Prize this year.
For your culinary delights, come on into Moose Creek Cafe on Main Street in Walden, serving up specialty burgers and southwestern dishes. Open every day at 6 AM for you early birds.
