RIGS Fly Shop & Guide Service and the Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership (UWP) have determined that with the rapidly evolving recommendations from state and local governments, it is essential for the protection of the greater community that our event be postponed.
We will be rescheduling this event at a later date at the Sherbino and truly appreciate the Sherbino Theater's flexibility and willingness to adjust during this time.
RIGS Fly Shop and UWP greatly appreciate your understanding about this necessary change, and your continued support of this benefit for the Uncompahgre River. We look forward to seeing you to celebrate with these amazing films and support a great cause at a later date, which will be announced with advance notice.

As a longtime supporter of watershed protection and improvement, RIGS Fly Shop & Guide Service recognizes access to quality waters as one of the most important resources for our community. RIGS is pleased to bring back this FT3 Film Tour as a fundraiser for the Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership. UWP will be the sole benefactor of 100% of the proceeds raised.
UWP is a Ouray County-based nonprofit with a mission of protecting and restoring the natural, scenic and economic values of the Upper Uncompahgre Watershed. Current UWP activities that benefit the community and the Uncompahgre River include maintaining plants and picking up litter and debris in riparian areas, monitoring water quality monthly, offering river and watershed ecology education, and providing scientific and community stakeholder input for stormwater, stream and public land management planning.
