Sports briefs: Ski Town USA Golf Classic deadline to register May 29


The registration deadline for the 12th annual Ski Town USA Golf Classic is nearing.

All participants and teams must be registered by May 29. Registration is $495 for individuals and $1,900 for a team. The tournament is June 19 and 20.

The two-day tournament takes place at Haymaker Golf Course and Catamount Ranch & Club.

In its 12 years, the tournament has raised more than $1 million, and this year will help benefit the Yampa Valley Healthcare Foundation's purchase of a $1.7 million 64-slice CT scanner. The scanner will upgrade the imaging capabilities and enhance the ability to perform cardiac imaging studies.

The field is limited to the first 216 golfers. There also will be a registration party June 18, as well as a benefit auction and cocktail party June 19 at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort Grand Ballroom.

For more information or to register, e-mail or call 871-0700.

Summer Pro Rodeo Series rolling out deal for locals

The Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series is rolling out a deal for locals this summer.

For $35, locals can get a season pass to the 10-week, 20-rodeo season.

The pass does not include the Fourth of July weekend.

Single rodeo tickets are $15.

"If you go to three rodeos, it more than pays for itself," rodeo board member Paul Strong said. "We're hoping that encourages locals to come out more and use the capacity that's not being used. We think it's a win-win for everybody."

The passes restrict seating to the west grand stands, or concrete seating. Passes will be available at the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association or Steamboat Central Reservations.

The first rodeo of the season is June 19.
