Job Description

We are needing a VO for an opening to a youth conference. The theme is classic western. Think John Wayne moving across the country with settlers.


Here's a bit of the script



They came west: from large cities, small rural towns, farmlands, and even beyond our shores. There were men, women, children, families, and immigrants from all walks of life.

They were looking for a better life, or to make a fresh start. Some came just to explore. Some came to find land, but most traveled to find gold and silver.

They came by rail, stage, Conestoga wagon, and horseback, braving long dusty trails, often times forging the trail as they traveled. Many brought everything they owned.


Tent cities appeared overnight. If there wasn’t a town, they started one. There was Leadville, Cripple Creek, Creede, Aspen, Blackhawk, Crested Butte, Silver Plume, and Gold Hill.

These early pioneers were brave, adventurous, hardy, and resourceful people. They dealt with bitter winters, dry summers, mountainous terrain, and many other hardships.

One challenge that faced all who came was lawlessness. Greed, wealth, and power fought against decency, fairness, self preservation, and respect. This new wealth attracted a variety of con men, poker players, bank robbers, and hired guns, who were eager to separate potential victims from their assets. Their names became notorious: Butch Cassidy, Soapy Smith, Poker Alice, and Clay Allison, to name a few.

This rampant lawlessness required new kind of justice, the frontier lawman. He was tough, resilient, and handy with a gun. It was a hard and dangerous life. Some lawmen gave up, and became outlaws. Some outlaws reformed, and became lawmen. The names of these Colorado champions of were also etched in the annals of frontier life: Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bob Ford, Bat Masterson, and Con Stapleton.

Today in Ft Collins, a new breed of pioneer has traveled to Colorado, the Law Enforcement Explorer. They’re preparing to face new challenges in law enforcement, unimagined by the pioneers of yesterday. They are armed with laptop computers, cell phones, and iPods, and GPS devises. Here onsite they’ll learn law enforcement techniques and practices, preparing to battle the innovative law breakers who continue to prey on others. For most it will be the first step in a new journey, just like those early pioneers who explored this great land, now known as Colorado. They are the future of law enforcement.


“Welcome to Colorado, explorers!”
