Who Remembers the Pirate?
Who remembers the Pirate?
I’m not sure of the dates. Back in the 1970s and earlier Pagosa had a skating rink. If memory serves, one of the Oak Ridge Best Western buildings was the skating rink. The rink was big on the Pagosa Pirates sports teams. They celebrated the Pirates by having the restroom doors painted with a girl Pirate and a boy Pirate. About 1982 I was building our alternant energy home using as much salvaged material as possible. I made a trade with a local fellow and got, in part, a stack of doors. Some came from the ornate old bank building and this one from the rink. It is kind of neat living with the history in this way. The pirate was hidden for many years and uncovered recently while remodeling.
