Residents Seek To Mitigate Lost Cutter Race Revenues

February 18, 2014 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
Shriners Hospital

With revenues lost due to the cancellation of Sunday’s Cutter Races in Jackson Hole, some in the community have inquired how they may help make up some of the money that was being raised for the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.  Race Chairman Rod Everett says he surprised and moved by the inquiries. He says donations may be made to the Jackson Hole Shrine Club, PO Box 1083, Jackson 83001.  He says, “If people are willing to send us a donation for the hospital, that would be fantastic!” Everett says the Shriners have hospitals with different specialties around the nation, and this one focuses on pediatric orthopedics.  He says it has helped a number of children here in Jackson who have faced orthopedic problems.  He says other Shriner’s hospitals deal with other problems like heart problems just as St. Jude’s focuses on children with cancer. Everett says the club is hoping that the weather will shift back to more normal patterns by this weekend so that the ski jouring competition which also benefits the hospital can proceed as planned.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
