— The Steamboat Springs Booster Club will hold its Fall Kick Off Barbecue and Community Open House on Thursday at the concession stand near Gardner Field.

From 5 to 7 p.m., a barbecue will feature food and drinks, as well as games, on the newly installed turf at Gardner Field. Attendees are asked to bring a dish depending on what sport their student athletes play.

“It’s just basically a kick off to fall sports and to get to the forefront of everyone’s mind what Booster Club does,” said Debbie Aragon, Booster Club president.

Aragon hopes to get strong participation in the event this year. She encourages all high school and middle school athletes and their families to participate.

The Booster Club helps fund sports that are not funded by the school. It also helps sports that are funded by the school to take on additional coaches.

Last year, the Booster Club raised more than $50,000 for Steamboat sports programs.

“Our goal is to raise money to keep the kids active,” Aragon said.

The barbecue is an opportunity to join the Booster Club. The cost is $20 for an individual and $50 for a family or business. Aragon said the Booster Club is looking for two board members.

“It’s a small time commitment with a huge impact on the lives of our student athletes,” she said.

The event also is the opportunity to unveil the new turf at Gardner Field.

“They can touch it, feel it or smell it if they want to,” Aragon said.

People with questions should call Aragon at 879-1756.
