Town Talk

Randy Wyrick, the world's only 7-day-a-week columnist

Q: “What’s the difference between a hotdog at Fenway Park and a hotdog at Yankee Stadium?

A: You can buy a Yankee Stadium hotdog in October.”

Movin’ right along

“Tis the season

A couple days ago, a fabulous young woman was doing spring cleaning in the side yard of one of the commercial buildings here in Eagle-Vail. She was raking up copious byproduct of both dogs and cigarette smokers, which had been buried under the snow all winter.

The lovely, hard-working young woman opined, “I don’t know if we’re going to have puppies or tobacco plants sprout and grow this spring.”

Change in the Chadfest Ski/Golf Extravaganza

Friday night’s party for the inaugural Chad Fleischer’s Ski and Golf Tournament, which, for Town Talk purposes will be called The Chadfest, has been awarded a change of venue. Club Chelsea, where it was supposed to be held, is looking a little like the Red Sea with no Moses or Charlton Heston to part the waters. So the party is moving to the Colorado Ski Museum. Go there. Support Chad, who’s a local and one of US. The money goes to three local non-profit organizations: The Colorado Ski Museum, Ski Club Vail and Eagle Ranch Junior Golf. For reservations, call 476-1876.

The schedule goes like this:

? April 12

Registration/Auction/Calcutta Kickoff 6-9 p.m. at Colorado Ski Museum

? April 13

Golf at Eagle Ranch Golf Club. Shotgun start at 11 a.m.

? April 14

Ski Race at Beaver Creek. 10 a.m. with awards immediately following at the Rendezvous.

BMHS Silent Auction

Plan a little extra time to visit the silent auction Friday, April 12

before and during intermission at the spring musical, “Seven Brides for

Seven Brothers.” The great stuff includes a snowboard, jewelry and gift certificates for restaurants, lodging and services. This is the primary fund raiser supporting Project Graduation our annual party for graduating seniors.

Cotillion Coolness

The Vail Valley Cotillion is one of those places you send your kids to learn to behave like the British, at least when the British aren’t trashing soccer stadiums. It’s for boys and girls from 5th to 8th grades, and starts April 14 at the Eagle-Vail Pavilion. The Cotillion program teaches your kids stuff like dancing and social etiquette programs – the kinds of stuff they need to know to close zillion-dollar business deals. Call Chris Eklund at 926-1516. Chris is also looking for some help riding herd on this deal.

Joy to the World

Welcome back to the valley on the Mrs. Joy Hambel better known as Mrs. G or Nonna Joy to Michael Stefano Gorla who is better known as Snookums #1.

Our Homer moment

We had a Homer Simpson moment with the photos of Bob Yang on page B12 of yesterday’s Vaily Daily. Bob Yang is the Colorado Mountain College Artist in Residence, not the artist-in-residence for the Vail Valley Foundation. Bob Yang is not a student at Colorado Mountain College, either.
