Special to The SUN
GECKO (Giving Every Child Knowledge of the Outdoors) has a full schedule of summer racing planned with plenty of new outdoor fun and some tweaks to old favorites. So, before you read on, get out your calendars to save the dates because, as a spectator, volunteer or a participant, there’ll be plenty to do and see.
GECKO’s year kicks off this evening with an awards dinner and official announcement of the 2015 GECKO NOLS Scholars. Look out in next week’s Pagosa Springs SUN for the names of final scholarship winners. The recipients will then start their preparations for their individual NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) summer expeditions in earnest.
