From email from the Ditch and Reservoir Company Association (John McKenzie):
We are only two weeks away from the start of our Tenth Annual Convention – Are Your Water Rights in Jeopardy? – It will take place from February 23-24, 2012, at the DoubleTree Hotel in Colorado Springs. We have compiled our largest list of speakers yet. Thirty-three speakers will discuss their views on timely subjects facing ditch and reservoir companies. The presentations will include topics on the recent United/FRICO change case, administrative issues, and keeping the next generation on the farm. Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory J. Hobbs will address the ditch and reservoir group on “Prior Appropriation: Does it Still Meet Changing Needs?” We are trying a new format this year and will be having three concurrent workshops on the morning of Friday, the 24th. The workshops are: What Directors and Officers Need to Know; Water Quality and Stormwater Issues; and Managing the Ditch Company. A complete agenda is available on the front page of the DARCA website.
You may be interested in attending the pre-convention workshop, Is Your Great-Grandpa’s Dam Ready for the 21st Century, on Wednesday, February 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please check out the great list of speakers at the DARCA website…
If you need to register you may visit www.darca.org to download a registration form or you may register on-line. You can always call, fax, or email me to register.
It will be good for us ditch people to get together and see what we have all been up to. Look forward to seeing all of you.
