2016 Lyons Outdoor Games

June 3 & 4

The Lyons Outdoor Games is a premier Colorado outdoor lifestyle, adventure sport and music festival, and it's just around the corner! Pop a tent Friday night with foothills views, and get out for a mountain bike ride on our world class single track in the morning. Send your kids up a climbing wall and drink craft microbrew from over 50 craft microbreweries around the country, while watching world class athletes compete in professional kayaking, dirt jumping and slacklining comps! Get in on it and sign up for this year's Beer Relay or kick off your flip flops and jump on a slackline or throw a disc at our new disc golf event. And it wouldn't be the Lyons Outdoor Games without some awesome eats to satisfy your hunger! 
As we come into our 15th year now, we are ramped up and psyched to bring a more adventurous life to Colorado!

Volunteer at the Lyons Outdoor Games

The Lyons Outdoor Games is a volunteer-driven event, with deep tradition in community involvement. This event couldn't happen without the team of volunteers!

Sign up for the 2016 Lyons Outdoor Games, the premier Colorado outdoor lifestyle, adventure sport and music festival (and beer fest)! All proceeds from this event go directly the Town of Lyons Parks, which are still recovering from the 2013 floods.

Volunteers will receive a Lyons Outdoor Games STAFF t-shirt, a super fun sponsor prize swag bag, a meal from Pizaa Bar 66, and free admission to all the events and concerts for them and their immediate family members.

There are plenty of volunteer slots to fill, with each shift averaging around 3 hours per shift. Don't be afraid to sign up for more than one shift for the event if you can manage! Without the volunteers, this event wouldn't be possible!

Main St. Streetscape Update

Power has been connected to traffic light this week. After CDOT inspections early next week, it is anticipated that the lights will begin flashing. Federal Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices requires traffic lights to flash for a short period of time to alert drivers to the new signal. This will take up to 7 days, and then the lights will be fully functional. 

What to expect this weekend:
Project Engineer Joe Kubala is arranging for temporary measures to allow for 2-lane traffic beginning Friday evening and continuing through Sunday. Additionally, flaggers will be onsite to mitigate cross-traffic access on Saturday.

Railroad Avenue Water Transmission Line Installation

Railroad Ave will have intermittent closures until June 24, 2016, as new water transmission lines are installed. These closures will follow the immediate work area and not cover the entire length of the block. Access will be limited from each side during this period. The contractor will maintain access for water bulk station, however, may require alternate access directions, depending on location. The work will occur from 5th Avenue to 4th Avenue. Underground water installation should be completed and operational by June 17, remaining work will be surface paving and clean up.
The new lines will help equalize water pressure around Town.

Tree Planting Staging Area at 341 Park

RETREET will be leading a tree planting project in Lyons on Sunday, June 5th. The materials for the planting will be delivered on Thursday, June 2nd and temporarily staged in the Confluence Neighborhood. The mulch and the trees will be stored on the lot at 341 Park St (Stacy property) until the end of the day Thursday (6/2/16). This lot will serve as the distribution hub as the materials are dispersed throughout town, to those who are participating in the tree plantings. Distribution of the materials will only involve a few pick-up trucks and will likely take just a couple of hours. Impact to the neighborhood will be minimal.

Come to Count for the Library

On Friday, June 3, at 7:00 PM in Rogers Hall, a talented group of local actors will perform a staged reading of the play Count to benefit the Lyons Regional Library Building Foundation. 
 Set in a German mental institution in 1902, Count fictionalizes an intellectual confrontation between mathematician Georg Cantor (Drew Biel) and Galileo Galilei (Joseph Lekarczyk) that reshapes the lives of a sanitarium nurse (Debbie Simms) and a young woman of the nobility seeking refuge in the asylum (Julie Smith).  Local musician Thom Bishop accompanies the reading on Dulcimer.
Please come to Roger’s Hall Friday, June 3, in support of these fine local actors and the Lyons Regional Library Building Foundation.  A $10 donation is requested.  More information is available at the Lyons Main Street Library.
