The college kids who get drunk and fly around on Horsetooth will pay it.

Good thing I had to buy a habitat stamp to preserve the environment so I can get ripped off by Lawyermore Larimer County to enjoy it.

This just depresses me.

Ouch, that hurts. I'm guessing then that it will be $8 for the truck and $8 for the boat for each visit if you don't have a pass. Since I usually exceed 10 trips to Horsetooth and Carter by a fair amount (say, 20 trips total?), it will still pay for itself.

Dare I ask, what new services are we getting for all of those extra dollars?

I think it's actually $75 for non-residents and $65 for Larimer County residents. I bought one last week and was charged $75. Plus, it doesn't look like the daily passes have gone up since last year -- still $6 on Mon-Th and $7 Fri-Sun.

Either way, it's definitely steep, but it's the best option if you go a lot (which I do). Last year, I wish I would've bought an annual pass. I probably went at least a dozen times and would've went a lot more if I didn't have to play $6-$7 each time. So far this year, I've already been to Horsetooth three times, so at this rate, it's looking like an OK investment.

If this is true, I can't understand why the CWA would even consider holding a tournament there. A waste of
entry fee moneys when they can hold it at other lakes in CO, NE or WY for a nominal permit fee.
