Two Lyons natives have taken a different angle on Colorado’s emerging marijuana industry by inventing a board game. Mike Ginwright and Robb Deeter, both of whom graduated in the 1980’s from Lyons High School, threw around the idea of making a board game based on marijuana in Colorado since they were eighteen or nineteen years old.

Folks of all ages, from crawlers to sitters (including some entertaining young people), came together earlier on January 19 at “Motown and More” to let it all hang out in Smokin’ Dave’s Log Cabin. Besides the usual couples and solo dancers, people joined in for some lively group dances, threading about from one to another in medleys. It was a time to be with friends and neighbors; old, new, and people who have been here twenty years but never met.
