That’s right, on May 7th, 2022, Flylords and Fat Tire will be coming together to host the in-person event of the year: The Party for the Poudre!
Last year, the Larimer County, and the greater Colorado community witnessed the heartbreaking events of the landslides that devastated the Poudre River Canyon following a series of Wildfires the year prior. This event upturned the lives of the local communities in many different ways, one of which was laying waste to a good portion of the Poudre River which flowed downstream of the event. Now, the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed (CPRW) is still in the process of mitigating these effects, while continuing its evergoing effort to protect and maintain the iconic river’s waters. This is why Flylords and Fat Tire are teaming up to throw the event of the summer, and raise money to donate to CPRW, to continue to support their efforts in recovering from last year’s events.
On May 7th, at the New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, CO, we will be holding a free concert event, in order to raise money for the Poudre River. This event will include 2 live bands, informational booths, Competitions, Live Tying, a massive fly-fishing gear raffle (including brands like Orvis, Simms, Fishpond, Flylords, Fat Tire, TOPO Designs, and more), Special guests, and of course – a lot of delicious beer. All proceeds from the raffles and beer tips will be donated to benefit the Coalition for the Poudre River Watershed. The event will run from 2 pm MST to 7 pm MST, with the raffle winner announced at 4 pm MST! So mark your calendars and tell your friends, because you’re not going to want to miss out.
