Beef and baseball are a winning combination in Japan as they are in the United States. To capitalize on that double-header pairing, USMEF recently involved Japanese baseball legend and Oklahoma state Senator Randy Bass in an extremely popular campaign to promote U.S. beef in Japan.

With coordination provided by the Oklahoma Beef Council, USMEF brought the two-time Japanese triple crown winner back to the scene of his spectacular baseball success to serve as headliner for a campaign to promote U.S. beef for yakiniku dishes.

Since Japan expanded access for U.S. beef earlier this year to include product from cattle up to 30 months of age, USMEF-Japan and its partners in the Japanese yakiniku industry have collaborated on a variety of promotional programs to let consumers know that popular U.S. beef – particularly beef tongue – is again being featured in the tabletop-grill cuisine.

As part of the fecent promotion, USMEF offerws baseballs and bats autographed by Bass as prizes in a drawing. To be eligible, consumers had to order the “Randy Bass Menu” at participating yakiniku chains nationwide.

08-04-13 *CPW News* BE EXTRA CAREFUL WHEN DRIVING OFF-HIGHWAY VEHICLES…

Posted by Brian Allmer on August 4, 2013

CPW-Colorado Parks and Wildlife logoDURANGO, Colo. – A recent accident on a back road in Montezuma County serves as a reminder to drivers of off-highway vehicles to be extra careful, say officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The man operating the OHV was driving on a dirt road in the San Juan National Forest that is open to OHV travel. He drove into the oncoming lane at a blind curve and collided with a car. The man swerved to avoid a head-on collision, but was ejected from the OHV, hit the windshield of the car, and sustained two broken toes and plenty of serious scrapes and bruises. He was transported to a local hospital where he was treated.

“It’s amazing he wasn’t more badly injured,” said Scot Elder, manager for Colorado Parks and Wildlife at Mancos and Lone Mesa state parks. “OHVs are especially vulnerable to accidents if drivers don’t operate them safely.”

The man driving the OHV was ticketed and fined $75. Read the rest of this entry »

04-15-13 Circle A Family Rodeo Kicks Off 2013 Season in Keenesburg on May 11th…

Posted by Brian Allmer on April 15, 2013

CLICK HERE to learn more about Circle A Family Rodeo…

Circle A Family RodeoCircle A Family Rodeo will kick off it’s 2013 season on Saturday, May 11 at South East Weld County Fairgrounds in Keenesburg, CO.

Children 5 years old and under can compete in the Pee Wee division in events such as the goat tail pull, mutton bustin’, and stick horse race. The Youth, Junior, and Senior divisions host kids and young adults ages 6-18, where they can compete in rodeo events including steer riding, poles, and flags. Circle A Family Rodeo truly lives up to it’s name as even adults have a division in which they can barrel race, breakaway rope, and team rope, in addition to many other events. Every family member who wishes to participate can do so in one of the five age divisions, and everyone can have a great weekend!

It is the goal of Circle A Family Rodeo to provide a place where families can spend quality time together and compete in a positive atmosphere. It is a place where everyone can learn the basics without a lot of pressure to perform. Members can be as competitive, or as relaxed as they choose to be based on what is right for them. Kerri Lemmons of Hudson, CO enjoys that “everyone supports each other and is willing to help those that need some extra guidance.” Payton Flack of Arthur, NE feels it really is a family rodeo where she learns a lot, and loves “that we can go and hang out with friends, family, and still rodeo.”

The rodeo is operated entirely by volunteers, and a large part of funding towards the tremendous year end awards is donated by generous sponsors and local businesses. The committee encourages the membership to patronize these businesses to show their appreciation. Sponsors also are listed, with a link, on the Circle A Family Rodeo web page, the name of their business is announced several times over the course of each performance, and they are cordially invited to attend the year end awards banquet. In addition, certain levels of sponsorship may have their names on awards such as saddles, belt buckles, and stirrups. This family oriented rodeo and continuation of our Western heritage would not be possible without their support.

04-08-13 ASTHMA AND ALLERGY FOUNDATION OF AMERICA SAYS COLORADO SCHOOLS SHOULD STOCK LIFE-SAVING ALLERGY MEDICATIONS…

Posted by Brian Allmer on April 8, 2013

AAFA-Asthma and Allergy Foundation for America logoFOUNDATION URGES COLORADO SENATE TO PASS HB 1171

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) supports school policies that promote access to life-saving medications to treat students and staff who experience severe allergic reactions.  The Foundation commends State Rep. Dianne Primavera for introducing HB 1171 in the Colorado House of Representatives.  This bill would supply schools with epinephrineauto-injectors, allow epinephrine auto-injectors to be used in emergencies, appropriately train school personnel, and address liability concerns for those who use this medication in good-faith. AAFA urges the Colorado House of Representatives and Senate to pass this bill before the legislative session closes.
Food allergy prevalence is rising, especially in young children.  For the 6 million children that have been diagnosed with a food allergy to nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, soy or any of the other common food items that can trigger life-threatening anaphylaxis, the most severe type of allergic reaction, the everyday act of eating carries potential for worry.  “No one can predict how severe a food allergic reaction will be,” said Charlotte Collins, vice president for policy and programs at AAFA. “It is essential for schools to prepare by stocking epinephrine, the life-saving medication for food allergy emergencies”.
Epinephrine Auto Injectors Save Lives

When a person comes into contact with a food allergen, an immune response is triggered and anaphylaxis may occur.  Anaphylaxis is a serious medical condition, which can be life-threatening if rapidly developing symptoms are not treated promptly.  Epinephrine is the medication indicated by medical experts as first-aid treatment for a severe allergic reaction to food.  With prompt injection, epinephrine is nearly always effective in the treatment of anaphylaxis.  Delay increases the risk of poor outcomes and even fatalities.  The epinephrine auto-injector is relatively easy to use, quick to administer and is low-cost to maintain an adequate supply.  The facts are simple: when available, epinephrine auto-injectors save lives.
Children spend a sizable amount of their time in school, whether for daily instruction or recreational activities.  Therefore, schools must be prepared to address the safety of their students.  The entire school team should be involved in developing an emergency action plan.  Through an open, proactive, and collaborative process, students with food allergies can be safer in the school environment.
States Are Acting to Prepare Schools for Emergencies

CHSAA_LogoOfficial Spring Practice Begins February 25

Aurora, Colo. – In spite of the winter storm the state has just experienced, the Colorado High School Activities Association’s 92nd year of spring sports begins Monday, February 25, 2013 for baseball, girls’ golf, boys’ and girls’ lacrosse, girls’ soccer, boys’ swimming and boys’ and girls’ track & field.

“The beginning of any new sports season practice remains one of the most exciting days in a student’s life. But even beyond that, that first day of practice offers all of us the opportunity to get back to the community-based roots that high school sports provide. Look around the state and you will see that each school is the hub of the activities in its neighborhood,” CHSAA Commissioner Paul Angelico said.

      Teams may scrimmage on March 2 in baseball, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and track, while golf and tennis can scrimmage starting February 28. The first contest for golf and tennis is February 28, while the other sports will have to wait for their first contest until March 7.

In May, 1921, a group of superintendents and principals met in Boulder and organized the Colorado High School Athletic Conference. The purpose of this organization was to better regulate and develop the interscholastic school athletic program.

01-12-13 *CHSAA NEWS* Class 1A State Basketball Moves to 1st Bank Center in Broomfield…Complete Schedule Below…

Posted by Brian Allmer on February 12, 2013

CHSAA_LogoAurora, CO – A scheduling conflict with the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland has forced the Colorado High School Activities Association to move its Class 1A State Basketball Championships to Broomfield’s 1StBank Center on March 14-16, CHSAA officials announced today.

“Somehow there was a scheduling conflict between the CHSAA dates and the Colorado Eagles at the Budweiser events Center.  Fortunately, it was discovered at a time where we were able to find a quality facility for this classification. It is somewhat frustrating to the 1A schools and the CHSAA as we try to find a more permanent home for them. However, we are pleased that the 1stBank Center is available for these games,” Assistant Commissioner Bert Borgmann, the CHSAA administrator in charge of the sport, said.

By establishing the new site now, Borgmann noted, it gives schools about a month to make alternate plans for housing and travel. The new site is located at 11450 Broomfield Lane in Broomfield just off US36 between Church Ranch Boulevard and Wadsworth Blvd.

Other state championship sites include: 2A – Massari Arena, Colorado State University-Pueblo; Moby Gym, Colorado State University-Fort Collins; 4A/5A – CU Events Center, Boulder.

CHSAA WRESTLING REGIONAL AND STATE RESULTS ACCESSIBLE ON TRACKWRESTLING

The CHSAA regional and state wrestling tournaments are now featuring live point-by-point scoring online through TrackWrestling (Access instructions attached and also available on www.chsaa.org/wrestling).

TrackWrestling is all-encompassing site that allows fans and media, alike, to access every facet of the regional and state meets, including individual match point-by-point live. Results are posted immediately to the site and are continuously updated.

TrackWrestling information will be streamed continuously on CHSAA.tv as it broadcasts each match live from the Pepsi Center February 21-23. All CHSAA.tv broadcasts for winter and spring 2013 are pay per view events. Access information for the CHSAA.tv events can be found at www.chsaa.tv.

01-30-13 CHSAA Joins Multiple States in PPV Sampling CHSAA.tv to experiment with subscription service for playoffs…

Posted by Brian Allmer on January 30, 2013

CLICK HERE to watch/listen to the Boys/Girls Championship Games LIVE on CHSAA.TV!

PlayONLogo300RGB (1)The Colorado High School Activities Association has joined with several other states to experiment with consumer subscriptions, commonly referred to as Pay Per View, to its state playoff broadcasts. Costs for the events will range in price depending on the length of the playoff offerings.

“Play On! Sports has asked us to participate in an experiment with subscription service. For comprehensive, quality coverage of high school sports to become a viable product, we need to research reasonable dual revenue models like other sports properties,” CHSAA Commissioner Paul Angelico said. “Live events have limited shelf life, are expensive to produce and advertising revenue alone cannot support the expense involved in that production. We need to experiment with this now to determine its viability.”

Play On! Sports, which is the parent company of CHSAA.tv, has developed a simple pricing structure for Colorado and will begin with the CHSAA’s first state championship event – Girls State Swimming & Diving Championships. That will be followed up by all other winter and spring playoff broadcasts, including the State Wrestling Tournament and State Basketball Championships.

“We expect some of our constituents to be concerned, but at the same time we know that in order to develop a sustainable product, we have to find a way to make these broadcasts affordable for those producing them as well as for the consumer,” CHSAA Assistant Commissioner Bert Borgmann noted.

The pricing structure for the Winter State Championships is:

Day Pass – $3.95

Weekly Pass – $6.95

Monthly Pass – $9.95

While this is an experiment for the next two sports seasons, Play On! Sports will determine its success and how future broadcasts on CHSAA.tv will be delivered. Games aired on the CHSAA.tv linear partner s, such as ROOT Sports, are not included in the PPV sampling. The attached is a question & answer document from Play On! Sports for your information.
