Weekend Lowdown – Lander Events

What Lander Events are Happening This Weekend?

2/8 – 2/10 2018

Here’s a quick recap of all the Lander events I heard about, but let us know if you find more!


Lander Search & Rescue meet & greet

Thursday 2/8
At Wind River Outdoor Company

Come meet Lander SAR and help us raise money for their operations. These VOLUNTEERS are the ones that go out day or night to help locate and extract those folks that have had too much fun in the outdoors. They have our respect and WROC would very much appreciate anyone coming as we don’t have too many Lander events! 10% of gross sales from 2PM to 7PM are donated to the group, door prizes and other great times will be had. Beer garden starts at 5PM too. Stop by and meet the great team of WROC and Lander SAR!
