Desert Dash 2017
We members of the Parker Rotary Club are very sorry that we had to cancel the 26th annual Buckskin Mountain Desert Dash, which was scheduled to take place on February 18, 2017. The safety of our participants and club members are always at the forefront of our concerns which led to our decision to cancel the event due to the projected weather. As you were not able to receive your shirt(s) for the event, if you have not already picked up, we will mail the shirt out to you.  We hope that you will understand the circumstances under which we have made this decision. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused and hope that we will see you at next year’s event.
