Spring Banquet - April 14, 2018

This year's banquet was another huge success, with close to 90 people in attendance!  Deanna was very pleased that our annual banquet continues to grow every year.  She had a great time meeting new people and reconnecting with falconers she hasn't seen in a long time. 

Apprentice Seminar - June 9, 2018

On June 9th we held the first of three falconry seminars lead by Don Born. Don is our new Apprentice Director and he is doing a great job of organizing the information needed to help aspiring apprentices to start their exploration into the world of Falconry.

The first seminar discussed the following topics:

    • The dedication and time commitments needed to become a Falconer
    • Regulations and the knowledge needed to care for your raptor along with passing the Colorado Parks and Wildlife falconry exam
    • The Facilities and Equipment needed to care for your bird

For more information on how to become a Falconer see these links for further information:

Our first photos show Don setting the stage for our day:

Ann Price came and provided an excellent introduction into how to identify the types of raptors found in our state:

Lunch was provided by the club and we had a chance to talk to Don along with other club members as well:

After lunch we discussed the equipment needed to care for your bird and use when caring for your bird.  He also discussed the mews (housing for the raptor) and weathering areas required by our state's regulations:

 We had an excellent turn out and would like to thank Don for his time and energy, Rodger Tucker (Director at Large), Ann Price, for their expertise, and Matt Gould for allowing us to meet his house for this event.  Please make plans to join us for our second Apprentice Seminar and check our Events page for the dates on the upcoming seminars.

If you would like to have some images posted to our club's website, please send them to our webmaster along with a description of the event!
