A city tradition for 52 years, pancakes and eggs are cooked by about 90 Soldiers who’ve been on site for hours. It’s a family event enjoyed by crowds sitting on hay bales and listening to The Durango Drifters. There are plenty of activities for the youngsters. The breakfast is a kick-off for the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo, which is in Norris-Penrose Stadium July 11-14. Pikes Peak Range Riders leave from the breakfast site to begin a five-day horseback ride around the area to promote the rodeo. Tickets are $5 on site; children under 5 eat free.

  • 33. 34 MOUNTAINEER — June 15, 2012Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Neil Werlinger Intramural softball player Neil Werlinger grew up in a small town in Montana where “pretty much all we had to do was play sports.” Werlinger played every sport from football to baseball to basketball to boxing. If there was a sport, he was playing it because it was pretty much all that could get him off the farm, he said. What is your favorite moment in sports? My senior year of high school we were picked to finish fifth, out of six teams, in our district and we ended up winning the district and going on to the state championship. It was the first time that (the) rugby (team from that high school) had ever been to the state championship. What would you consider your favorite professional sports moment? That would be in 1991 when Dan Gladden of the Minnesota Twins slid across home plate and scored the winning run against the Atlanta Braves in the World Series. That is still, without a doubt, my favorite sports moment. What haven’t you done in sports but wish you could do? I would like to win a championship. We won the spring term of this year, but before that every team I’ve ever played on has gotten as far as runner-up but never a championship. I have been on the runner-up team twice in softball but never won a championship. If you could play professionally what sport would you want to play? Baseball would be the game I would like to play. I have always had a passion for the game because of the technical (aspect) — a lot of thinking, but it is also just as much about your mental makeup as it is your physical makeup. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that … I’m a big guy so when people see me they automatically first think of me as a sports player. I think they would be surprised to know that I read a lot of books and I watch the game show “Jeopardy” every night. Photo by Walt Johnson Turn d Down? T ned D wn? Turned Dow ?

  • 35. 36 MOUNTAINEER — June 15, 2012 Story and photos by Nel Lampe Mountaineer staff Every summer for 36 years, people in Colorado have the opportunity to return to the Middle Ages via the Colorado Renaissance Festival. Forget the Diamond Jubilee in London, King Henry has been on the throne in the Kingdom of Larkspurshire for more than 500 years. King Henry invites all his royal subjects to join him and the royal family in merrymaking in the medieval-style village north of Colorado Springs near Larkspur at Exit 172 Saturday-Sunday for eight weekends, rain or shine. The Kingdom of Larkspurshire is a permanent village made up of medieval-style shops, stores, food stands, bars, bakeries, stages and carts. It’s in an uneven, wooded area and can be a long walk from one end of the village to the other. The village is filled with revelers, musicians, damsels, jesters, shopkeepers, knights, troubadours, artisans, food sellers and wannabes, all making merry and speaking Old English. Spending a day at the Renaissance Festival is not only fun, it’s educational. Visitors learn about times, culture and costumes of the 16th century. The marketplace is filled with artisans selling their wares that have a 16th century influence — swords, sandals, boots, toy swords and pieces of armor. Medieval-style clothing is available as well as ribbon headpieces. Many of the “subjects” that respond to King Henry’s invitation arrive in their best medieval clothing. Got a kilt? Wear it, or rent one at the Costumer’s Shop just outside the village entrance. Fit in with the crowd and get in the spirit. Entertainment is medieval style — sword swallowers, comedians, music groups, acrobats, a hypnotist , and an escape artist. Pick up a village map at the entrance. The village’s eight stages Sir Markus, played by Mark Fossey, rides past the royal family at the Tournament of Arms in the Joust Arena Sunday at the Colorado Rocky Mountain Raptors display birds Renaissance Festival opening weekend. during a demonstration Sunday at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
