A grand re-opening of Elks Park in Rangely was held Saturday last to celebrate the improvements to the park in the past year. Inflatables were set up for the kids and more than 100 people enjoyed “surf and turf” or hot dogs. A rib cook-off was won by Ryan Huitt, Brad Casto finished second, Dave Zikafose was third and John Fischer finished fourth. Rib judge Barry Swenson stated he would “pay top dollar in any restaurant for any of the ribs in the contest.”
RANGELY I Over the last year, Rangely residents have watched Elks Park undergo a facelift, from new restrooms and dugouts to a custom-made entrance sign and a larger pavilion.
RANGELY I In loving memory of the child who once played there, three custom benches and a one-of-a-kind concrete walkway now flank the south side of the Elks Park playground.
