In Case you are interested… The Rockies are playing the Giants at Coors Field on April 21-23, and Phil is taking a walk…TMS has a fair number of baseball fans, and at least a few are considering heading over the game on Friday evening. Information on the game is posted here. If you want to be added to a list of people that would be interested in joining others at the game, let staff know, and we’ll try to put you in touch with those that are going.Also after the meetings on Friday, TMS Executive Director, Phil Samblanet is hoping to decompress at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge with a walk. While the park is in the middle of an industrial area, the Arsenal is a beautiful gem of grasslands and ponds offering a chance to see bison, deer, eagles, hawks, waterbirds, coyote and more. If you are interested in joining him, perhaps with a stop at a drive through for a bite to eat, let him know. Since his truck is small, he can take only the first three that respond. However, there may be an opportunity for others to join if cars are available.
