*****Aug 6 Important update*****
Here are the new plans to replace the event originally scheduled at the Flying W Ranch:
Cockatil Hour in the hotel, with a cash bar, will begin at 6pm
A Traditional Western BBQ will be served, in the hotel, at 7pm
Entertainment following dinner will be provided by the trio "The Western Dinettes" - a good ol' tribute to country legends like Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, John Denver, The Dixie Chicks, Carrie Underwood, and more!
*****July 2 Important update*****
Here is a link from the hotel on the status of their property, and things in general in Colorado Springs! Click here So good to hear everything is fine at the hotel, and the city proper is doing ok.
****June 30 Interesting link****
I thought this was interesting. This is a link to a video on YouTube made of time-lapse photography showing the progress of the fire. It is kind of long, 16 minutes, but it is well worth the time to watch. I think it would be really amazing visit Colorado Springs after watching this. Click here
*****June 27 Important update*****
Please pray for the Wolfe family and the rest of the families connected to the Flying W Ranch. The ranch burnt to the ground Tuesday. It will, of course, be necessary to rearrange the itinerary for the September reunion. We will let you know as soon as alternate plans have been made. The host hotel, the Best Western Academy Inn, has not had any damage so far, although there is a lot of thick smoke and ash in the area. We will keep you posted should anything change.
