About the Acts:
Steve Mudflap McGrew:
comedian Steve McGrew’s takes on the lighter side of life. Born in Tulsa, OK, but raised near the Houston area, McGrew began his career at the beginning of the 80’s, working as an editorial cartoonist for the Houston Chronicle during the day and performing standup at night, early on, he shared stages with comedians like Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison at Houston’s Comedy Workshop Club. After about five years, McGrew decided to concentrate on comedy full – time and quickly became a popular attraction around the South. From there he went on to appear on virtually every cable show devoted to standup comedy, including An Evening at the Improv, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, Showtime’s Full Frontal Comedy, and Comedy on the Road, among others. He also showed up on MTV, VH1, and TNN, as a finalist on Star Search, and on the Bob and Tom morning radio show.
Additionally, McGrew opened concerts for several rock and country artists, including Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, Wynonna Judd, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Doobie Brothers, and The Beach Boys. As he grew more ambitious, McGrew put together a series of one-man shows – including a stage piece based on his experiences as a divorced father – that allowed him to explore different comic territory. McGrew made a string of recordings available on the Laughing Hyena label, and then switched to Uproar for his most widely distributed album to date, 1999’s Too Much Man for Just One Woman and Other Lies. http://www.myspace.com/stevemcgrew.

Keystone Enduro Race Series #3
WHAT IS ENDURO? Enduro is a relatively new format which appears to have taken some inspiration from both car rally and motorbike enduro racing. Mountain bike enduro is essentially the competitive side of the mountain biking format often referred to today as “All-Mountain”. Due to this eclectic combination of attributes, enduro racing is increasingly recognized as the truest test of the all-round mountain biker. The Mass Start will take place on at the top of the Peru Chair (pleaser reference a Keystone Trail Map for directions). From there, participants will be required to climb (via bike) up the P-3 Trail. Once they have achieved the climb, a judge will mark the climb completed as the participant moves on to descend the mountain on a course of their choosing. All participants must stay to a maintained Keystone Resort Trail as they descend. The Race finish line is indicated with signage and a chalk line at the base of River Run Face, adjacent to the Summit Express Lift and at the South end of the Pedestrian Bridge. Races start at 6pm and are categorized between Men & Women, with the top 3 from each group be awarded with cash prizes.

Friday, 8/17/2012
Keystone Ascent Race Series #3
The Mass Start will take place on River Run Road, directly North of the Keystone Sports Sprung Tent. From there, a Neutral Start will ride to East Keystone Road continuing on to Jack Straw Road to the Summit of Dercum mountain, continuing to the North East side of the Summit House and wrapping around the North West side of the Summit house. The Race finish line is indicated with signage and a chalk line. WHAT IS ASCENT? An Ascent Race is an uphill race against the clock (also referred to as “the race of truth”). Winning depends only on each rider’s strength and endurance, and not on help provided by team-mates and others riding ahead and creating a slipstream. Starting times are at equal intervals, usually one or two minutes apart. The rider with the fastest time is declared the winner. Race starts at 6pm.

SummitCove Partners with Lake Dillon Water Taxi, Offering Guests a Unique Way to Experience Lake Dillon


The Summit Shuttle open for the summer season and is running shuttles daily between the Frisco and Dillon Marinas.  The water taxi runs across Lake Dillon, offering guests not only a ride, but a beautiful scenic tour across Lake Dillon. The ride offers up breathtaking views and is a great way to experience the lake from a whole new perspective, without the hassle or expense of renting and/or driving an unfamiliar boat.  This weekend I had the pleasure of my first water taxi ride.  After the quick boarding at the Dillon Marina, we set sail for our 25 minute ride across the lake in the pontoon boat that is decked out with comfortable chairs, an optional sunshade and of course the 360 degree panoramic views. Along the way, enjoy the beautiful landmarks and sights, including the Gore Range, 10-Mile Range, an old mining town, and even a glimpse of Keystone’s Dercum Mountain.   Sailboats, speed boats, and even some kayakers were also out enjoying the lake this weekend.  At 3,300 acres and with 24 miles of shoreline, Lake Dillon is the summertime gem of Summit County.

Visitors can choose to start from either side of the lake at the Dillon or Frisco Marinas and choose from a round trip ride or shuttle one-way.  The boat allows bikes, baby shuttles, and even dogs on board.  Make an afternoon of it by riding your bike or driving down to the Marina, ride the taxi across the lake, stop for lunch or a drink at the Island Grill at the Frisco Marina, do some shopping on Frisco’s Main Street, and then head back on the water taxi whenever you are ready.  The taxi phone is 970-389-9336 and although there is no set schedule other than the daily start and stop times, you are welcome to call the taxi line at any time and they will be able to give you a rough estimate of the next departure time, average time between marinas is 30-45 minutes.

In addition to its taxi service, the company offers private charter services 7 days a week for groups who want the luxury of having a vessel for their own private use. Over the years they have accommodated many family reunions, wedding groups and corporate outings. While they do not serve food and drink, you are welcome to bring your own on-board. All private charter prices include a captain who will take care of the driving while your group relaxes and takes in the scenery.  Try this service for a beautiful sunset cruise or just a fun afternoon with friends or family!

If you are looking for that one summer activity where all the members of your group, no matter how young or old, can be together, this is one activity that is sure to please them all.  Don’t forget to wear sunscreen when playing outdoors and bring a light jacket on the boat, as there may be a breeze out on the lake.  The taxi will run rain or shine unless lightening is spotted, and rain jackets are available to wear during the ride if necessary.   The taxi services typically run from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekends.  Be sure to bring your camera, as the views are spectacular!
