Have a Field Day in Boulder

For many people, the idea of Field Day brings back memories of three-legged sprints, wheelbarrow races, big blue ribbons and cheering friends. And that’s the spirit that Women’s Adventure event director Joanne Laubscher is going for with “The Playground,” the center point of her second annual Women’s Adventure Field Day at the Boulder Reservoir.

“It’s a day where there’s no pressure to do or be anything,” Laubscher says. “It’s just a chance to come out with your girlfriends and play. We wanted to try to remind people of that feeling of being a kid again and that sensation of trying new activities, that realization of being completely and totally alive.”

The $75 registration includes all-day access (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to clinics in rock climbing, orienteering, yoga, golf, bike maintenance, sports medicine, massage and nutrition, as well as equipment demos and opportunities to try stand-up paddling, kayaking, fly fishing, mountain biking, downhill skiing and other sports. There will also be gear giveaways, adventure-travel trip raffles, and swag bags put together by Women’s Adventure magazine, Merrel, Overland, Osprey, the Women’s Wilderness Institute, REI, Zeal Optics, Outdoor Divas and other sponsors. The Boulder Reservoir is located off highway 119 in Boulder County. For registration and more information, visit www.thewomensadventure.com.
