Colorado Experience's Viewer's Choice

Date: February 16, 6:00pm-8:00pm
Continues Until:
Location: 550 School Street
Details: You’ve heard of Meeker’s Sheepdog Trails that they have in the fall every year, but do you know the history that goes back over thirty years. Every year Colorado Experience conducts a “Viewer’s Choice Award” where we let viewers decide what episode we’ll produce. For a few weeks (typically in March) we have a call for submissions where anyone can suggest episode ideas and we always get a long list of interesting and important topics. This year we had nearly 300 submissions! We then narrow that down to 6 finalists from different regions and timeframes and open up the contest for voting. This year the race was tight between the history of Tesla’s time in Colorado and the history of the international competition, The Meeker Classic. And, as we all know, Meeker won the vote! Last year “Aviation” won, and “Dinosaurs” and “Ladies of the Mines” before that (www.rmpbs.org/coloradoexperience/viewerschoice/). This year’s outcome was in large part due to the town itself and those who support the competition internationally. It is always fun to watch people get excited about Colorado topics, especially those within their own communities. This episode will embark on a journey, witnessing dog and handler versus sheep in the small town of Meeker, where the rugged terrain has challenged the World’s top sheepdogs for over thirty years. “The Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trials” will air February 28th, 2019 on Rocky Mountain PBS. On behalf of Rocky Mountain PBS, our sponsors White River Electric Association and Meeker Classic Sheepdog Championship, I extend an invitation to our Colorado Experience screening, “The Meeker Classic Sheepdog Trails” on February 27th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at Meeker High School, 550 School Street, Meeker, CO 81641. Doors open at 5:30 pm and reception starts at 6:00 pm. We will have a reception before, with hot cider and cookies provided by Meeker Classic. After the screening, we will have Q&A discussion with our panelist that consist of locals and experts regarding the topic. Feel free to RSVP on our Facebook page or Eventbrite. I look forward to seeing you at the show!
