Wednesday Afternoon Activities

Take some time to enjoy the Grand Junction area.

On Wednesday, May 25, we have scheduled free time from 1:00 - 5:00 pm for you to enjoy all the activities the Grand Junction area has to offer.  In addition to mountain biking, dirt biking, and hiking (which you are welcome to do on your own,) we have coordinated the following group activities for conference attendees.

Tee 'em high and let 'em fly.  If you're a golfer - or just pretend to be - then this event is for you.  The tournament takes place the the Adobe Creek National Golf Course and the fee includes drink tickets, 18 holes, cart rental and a chance to win some great prizes.  It's a four-man scramble format with a shotgun start.  Pre-registration is required.

Our most popular event.  Accuracy is the name of the game for this team competition held at the Grand Junction Trap Club.  The fee includes lunch, rounds, and some fantastic prizes.  Pre-registration is required and participants must provide their own gun.  

No "Wine"-ing Tour
Fee - $60
Big boy pants required!  Palisade is know for its peaches and wineries but this event focuses on operations outside of these parameters. This 4-hour tour as 3 stops that showcase:
Peach Street Distillery tour guides will take you through their facility. They will cover the production process from Colorado local grain (and fruit) to your glass. The stop will wrap up with a sampling of their Colorado Straight Bourbon or other products from its White Dog infancy to its five year aged single barrel expression.
• The Talbott family’s roots are deep in Palisade. Seven generations of farming in the valley has seen and done it all. Their most recent endeavor is Talbott’s Hard Cider. We will see the behind the scenes processes of a working Cider House from production to bottling. And of course a tasting will seal the visit.
• The final stop will be the Palisade Brewing Company. They brew innovative American style beer with respect to the traditional roots of craft brewing. While they always strive to be original and innovative with their beer, they would never turn their backs on the European fundamentals that define craft brewing. A trip to Palisade would not be complete without stopping by for a taste here.
The $60 fee includes all tastings and transportation to/from Grand Junction Convention Center and Palisade.

For the laid back group.  Justin Tate will lead this fishing expedition. Unknown at this time, the final destination will be determined by the number of participants, their ability and the weather. All are invited, but participants must have a valid Colorado fishing license and provide their own gear, rods and artificial flies/lures.
