The 18th annual Dirk and Colt Ross Memorial Basketball tournament is on the horizon, with this year’s tournament taking place April 18-20.
Proceeds from the tournament go to a scholarship fund to benefit Pagosa Springs youth.
In addition to the tournament, officiated by referees from the Four Corners area, the event will again include a special memorial presentation on April 19.
