This seminar is an introduction to working with Photoshop Elements to make your digital pictures better. It will begin with an overview of Elements, its tools and features and a demonstration of what it can do for you. Following that, you will begin making some basic adjustments to your own photos using the tools so bring your computer (with Photoshop Elements) to the class to follow along. If you don’t have Elements, you are still welcome to attend to learn about the software, but you won’t be able to participate in the hands-on exercises. The seminar is scheduled for Saturday from 9-11 a.m. at the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco. The class is limited to 25 so call the center to pre-register at (970) 668-2940. Walk-ins will be turned away if the class limit is reached on the day of the seminar.

The 10th annual DogTerra winter event will be hosted again by the town of Breckenridge/Gold Run Nordic Center on Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Louisa Morrissey of Skijor-N-More will be running the skijor clinic again (beginners and intermediates). Our Dogstacle course is back this year (replaces the agility courses), so if you’re smart, you’ll start practicing with your hula hoop (we know you have one) and tell the furballs that you expect them to fly through the weaving poles and over the straw bales and not poke their noses in your face when you’re down on all fours trying to roll a tube with your nose … yeah, right, that never happens. Poker Snowshoe (not races) will start at 9:45 & 10:30 a.m. with prizes given for best and worst poker hands, so you really can’t lose. The Mighty Mite dashes were such a popular event that we will repeat those this year, so all you 20 lbs. and under dogs need to come out and show all those bigger slobbering mutts how to whup some butt! We’ll have the Frisbee/Chuck-It courses open throughout the entire morning too, so there’s at least one or two things that your pup and you can enjoy.Registration runs from 9-9:30, with events starting right after, so come early enough to get registered for the ski jor class that starts at 9:45 (it helps if you print a registration form from our website and fill it out at home and bring it to DogTerra: no pre-registration for this event). L.A.P.S. members pay $25 for the first dog and $10 per dog for multiples … humans are free. Non-members pay $28 and then $10. Bring the family and enjoy participating in all the events. Free Abbey’s coffee and donuts and water and free dog treats for the hairy ones (compliments of Trail Dog Treats). You must bring proof of current rabies vaccine and a 6′ leash, along with either snowshoes or Nordic equipment.
