Mustang Roundup kicks off

13th annual event about more than cars

— An 18-hole golf tournament will kick off the 13th annual Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup today at the Sheraton Steamboat Golf Club.

The golf tourney, which starts at noon, marks the beginning of a four-day Mustang tour in Steamboat Springs.

Bill Bruhn, co-chairman of the Rocky Mountain Mustang Roundup, said the roundup has been going on in Steamboat for about five years.

Prior to it being held in Steamboat, the roundup took place in Frisco, he said.

Several events will highlight the roundup, including a show-and-shine car show in downtown Steamboat Saturday. Staging will begin at 7 a.m. while the car show will start at 10 a.m.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Spectators will see about 400 cars at the show, Bruhn said.

“This is probably one of the largest Mustang shows in the country,” Bruhn said. “We love the area. It’s one of the prettiest areas in the country and that’s why we do it.”

An autocross will be held at the Tennis Meadows parking lot Friday, Bruhn said.

There will be a morning and afternoon session, he said. About 130 drivers will complete three runs, with trophies being handed out at the show-and-shine show Saturday.
