Spring Round-Up & Idaho State Championship Elk Calling contest April 10

   The Spring Round-Up is an area communities’ fundraising event in its tenth year and you won’t want to miss it! Hosted by the Clearwater Valley Chapter of the Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association, it is a relaxing day at Orofino’s City Park that includes live music, raffles and games, the ever popular ‘musical saddles’, live and silent auctions and the best darn BBQ rib-eye steak dinner in the valley, complimented by Dutch Oven potatoes and desserts.

   Once again, the Idaho State Championship Elk Calling Contest will be held at the Spring Round-up. This year marks the contest’s fourth year and again promises to be very entertaining. Prizes will be awarded. More details will be published in the weeks leading up to the April 10th event.

   Proceeds provide scholarships to four area High Schools and half of the profits are given to the ICARE project (Cancer Assistance and Recovery Effort) providing financial aid to people in Clearwater River areas who are actively receiving treatment for cancer or other serious illnesses. Area communities also benefit, throughout the year, with other various contributions made from the profits of the Spring Round-up.

   Roundup yer friends, bring out the elk bugle and come join the fun April 10! Dance to follow at Best Western’s Lodge at River’s Edge with Stampede! and Rockin’ HW!
