                Archery will begin early next month in Highlands Ranch.  The range in the Backcountry Wilderness area will become open on April 1 and go all the way until October 31, 2018.  The range will be expanded to satisfy calls for 100 meter shot lengths, separate areas for lessons and tournaments, and other large areas to accommodate larger demands.  The expansion will also be able to house a 3D archery range, which is great for practicing on targets that resemble animals or anything besides a bullseye.  Archery classes will be on the calendar in the next few weeks.  We are still a little early before they are posted.  Working in Highlands Ranch property management means we are always ahead of the curve with respect to community events.  But the great thing about that is that you...

                Keep this date in mind for your calendars if you have little kids approaching the pre-school stage of their life.  Your children do seem to grow up so fast, and before you know it they have reached the 2.5 to 5-year-old and need to be registered for preschool.  At the Eastridge rec center from 9:00 to 10:30am on Saturday March 10 you can come for the registration day.  Classes tend to fall up quickly, so you really shouldn’t be missing registration day.  This is the same event to get your questions answered as well as meet the preschool staff and discuss the options of their full-day Enrichment program.  The homes we manage as part of our Highlands Ranch property management portfolio have had many long-term tenants.  Often, we have tenants move in with younger kids who o...

                 Come on down to the Southridge Rec center this afternoon for the Spirit Tasting’s second outing, an afternoon with Tiki Cocktails.  Tike drinks are an art and a delicate balancing act between sweet and spice, between stiff and watered down.  Taste that can go awry or south in a hurry.  If you have even a passing interest in tike cocktails you will be welcoming to come by this went.  Davidson’s will be co-hosting and sponsoring 7 events this year.  Back in January as part of our Highlands Ranch property management local event series, we reported about a mid-winter hot cocktail event.  These tike drinks will usher in spring and with the nice weather we have been having these tike drink recipes will go far.  They are the perfect spring, summer or sunny day year-round drink...

                 The Father-Daughter ball at Highlands Ranch Mansion is a once a year event.  There are boundless amounts of photos taken from previous years to show you how great an event it is.  In Highlands Ranch property management, we have been privy to a lot of these events year after year.  We have seen some long-term tenants take their daughters to these events and seen them grow through the pictures they have provided.  One of the perks of the business.  This night will create wonderful memories full, of fun, laughter love and dancing with your sweetheart.  Now more than ever we should be strengthening bonds like this, and keeping the importance of a strong bond between father and daughter.  It can be tough to navigate the world and social constructs you encounter, and so event...

Highlands Ranch has no shortage of community and local events as the weeks go on.  There will be a a great educational event for kids of ages 3 or older who have an interest in birds of prey.  Working in Highlands Ranch property management, we have our hand in many pots throughout the community and have an ear to the floor for every single event possible.  Sometimes they are spread out amongst the weeks, with the good ones peppered in throughout the year.  HRCA Metro District has an acute sense of what events the kids of the community will like.  They are usually casting a wide net to try and get as many interests covered as possible.This Raptors of the Rockies event will be a way for all the children ages 3 and older to get up close to the most common birds of prey in the Rocky Mountai...

If the weather continues to hold at this great sunny and temperate amount, we will hopefully be able to restart the Highlands Ranch farmer’s markets.  These will always occur on Sunday and once the weather becomes relatively stable they will be out in full force.  Some years past they have not been able to start until after Mother’s Day.  Depending on the amount of pre-summer farming done will obviously depend on how this nice weather will hold.  It is interesting to see just how relatively warm and unseasonably nice it is.  Regardless of when they resume, here is what you can expect.  Our Highlands Ranch property management office is 3 minutes from the farmer’s market, so we have visited several times before. There are a host of local farmers and vendors that show up and take over the ...
