Big Red of the Rockies in Estes Park

Many people have asked how Jesse Kosch and his family were doing due to the floods in Estes Park.  I'm happy to say Jesse emailed this morning with the good news that Estes Park is opening back up for visitors / tourists and his store, Big Red of the Rockies, is reopening for the weekend.  Because of road damage, the only way currently into Estes Park without checkpoints is the following:
I-70 to Central City / Blackhawk
119 to Nederland
Highway 72 to Highway 7
Highway 7 will take you into Estes Park

Jesse is looking to come to one of the watch locations for the game this Saturday with Kassondra taking care of Big Red of the Rockies.  As soon as Jesse lets us know which location he will be watching the game, we will share the information via Facebook and on the web site.
