The Ridgway Area Trails Chapter of COPMOBA is now officially known as COPMOBA/RAT.  We have begun planning and prioritizing the various elements we’ll need to coordinate for our Third Annual RAT FEST fundraiser.  This year’s event is scheduled for Town Park on June 7, 8 and 9, 2013.  The agenda tentatively includes live music, trail building, live auction, silent auction skills clinic.  We again expect to dispense both Fat Tire products and treats from Ridgway’s own award-winning brewer, the Colorado Boy. 
We’d like to thank all COPMOBA members, friends and supporters who have submitted comments to the BLM’s Uncompahgre Field Office concerning the Draft EA and TMP the BLM has created for the Ridgway Trails Project. 
RAT hosted a fundraiser at the historic Sherbino Theatre in Ridgway on January 26.  The Sherbino provided an open bar and dispensed some of Fat Tire Brewery’s finest products.  Thanks to the Quick read more or view full article Sherbino and Ed Hines of Fat Tire for sponsoring our event. We also screened the classic MTB Film, Klunkerz, for about 75 attendees.  All proceeds will assist in building out the Ridgway Trails Project once BLM and Ridgway State Parks complete implement the pending TMP. 
We’ve added Brian Scranton and Sara Ballantyne to our local steering committee, where their leadership and energy have given our group a big boost.  We extend special thanks to RAT’s GPS and mapping guru, Jeff Bockes, whose gorgeous maps have helped make our position on the Ridgway TMP clear, concise, persuasive and artful.
