Banquet July 21st is open to the public
Fishing for the Fight is an annual limited entry fly fishing tournament to raise funds for Kickin’ Cancer in Sublette County, which helps cancer victims. It is sponsored by a group of dedicated fly fishermen who have access to private waters and have the help of great guides. The private fishing beats have been generously provided by local landowners. 100 percent of the proceeds generated go directly to families who are in the fight against cancer. The funds raised defray the costs of travel, food and lodging, a cost that results from living in a rural location far from cancer treatment centers.
The team entry deadline was June 1st, 2018. There will be a Meet & Greet on Thursday, July 19th at the Goodrich residence when teams will draw their guides and beats for the tournament. Each team is composed of two contestants and a private fishing guide. Each team will get to do 1-1/2 days of fishing on mostly private, world-class fishing waters in Sublette County. It is a "First, Most, Biggest" tournament.
The banquet will be held on Saturday, July 21st and is open to the public. Tickets cost $50/person. It will be held at the Dogwood Valley Ranch, 10140 US 191, west of Pinedale at 6PM.
The Charles Stough Fishing For the Fight bronze memorial traveling trophy is hosted each year by one of the FFF sponsor hospitals. It was created by Bryce Pettit of Durango, Colorado. The piece is entitled "Breaking Free."
Although the fishing teams are set for this year, new supporters are welcome to attend this year’s banquet for more information and to prepare if they want to participate in next year’s event.

Music Fest, Adventure Race
Pinedale’s Wind River Mountain Festival returns July 20-22 for a weekend celebration of the Wind River Mountain Range highlighted by two nights of live music and day-long adventure race.
Again boasting over 50 event sponsors including a who’s-who’s of outdoor product companies (Patagonia, North Face, et al.), The Wind River Mountain Festival will feature everything from live music and gear demos to kids events and a craft beer festival. Fun vendor booths, outdoor contests and floats down Pine Creek are also part of the festival with many activities taking place at American Legion Park.
The Surly Pika Adventure Race is not a triathlon or relay. It is a team-based adventure race in the front-country of the largest mountain range in the state, the Wind River Range. Team members (Pikas) must navigate with map and compass to track down checkpoints via bike, foot, and boat. There are two race divisions: a six and a twelve-hour option. The Surly Pika will be held Sunday, July 22 and online sign-ups are available at www.windrivermtfest.com
Headlining the music portion of the two-night festival will be Utah’s "Cowboy from the Crypt" Timmy the Teeth and his full band on Friday night and Phoenix Indie-Rockers Jared & the Mill on Saturday night. Music will kick off at American Legion Park at 4:00 p.m. on both nights.
Friday Night Full Music Lineup:
4:00 PM: Jason Tyler Burton
5:30 PM: Whippoorwill
6:45 PM: Timmy The Teeth
Saturday Night Music Lineup:
4:00 PM: Aaron Davis & The Mystery Machine
5:30 PM: The 502s
6:45 PM: Jared & The Mill
Music for the Wind River Mountain Festival is presented by The Pinedale Fine Arts Council (PFAC) as part of their 11th Annual Soundcheck Summer Music Series.
Home to over 140 miles of the Continental Divide Trail (CDT), the Wind River Range is one of Wyoming’s most sought-after destinations.
In February of 2016, Pinedale was officially accepted as Wyoming’s first CDT Community – a designation reserved for communities in close proximity to the Trail that apply through the CDT Coalition and promise to promote good stewardship and, among other things, plan a corresponding event, which has blossomed into the 3-day festival.

Sage & Snow Garden Club
This week, the Sage and Snow Garden Club recognizes Paul and Doris Woodbury on South Bench Road as the recipient of the Garden of Beauty Award. The Woodburys built a large hoop house a few years ago, and, recently, it was wrecked by the wind. This spring they rebuilt it stronger and better and have filled it to the brim with rows of vegetables growing in in-ground beds. The large hoop house garden is watered with an efficient drip irrigation system. Their beautifully landscaped yard is eye-catching with the vibrant colors of daisies, catmint, hostas, currants, nine bark, and many other varieties of plants and shrubs. Ranch lick tubs are overflowing with tomatoes, carrots, beets, and salad greens. Their love of herbs is evident in all their gardens, including a "barrel" of horseradish. The Woodburys are adventurous gardeners, always willing to try new things in our challenging growing environment.
