    Trails looked good today. The ride is going to happen.

    Front and rear tow points are a MUST, anyone without them will not be allowed to ride! Bumpers DO NOT count as a tow point.



    WHEN:

    Sunday, February 21, 2016

    REQUIREMENTS:
    1)Typical Louisiana 4x4 Required Items (see http://la4x4.org/policy.html for details)
    2)Your Sweetheart and/or Your children if you are fresh out of a sweetheart (not really required but ENCOURAGED, and also encouraged to drive!)

    COST:
    Members Ride Free
    Non Members ride for $20

    WHERE:
    Sheriff Daniel's Property
    St. Francisville, LA
    Meeting location in DETAILS

    DETAILS:

    Meet at the CHEVRON TRUCKSTOP (US 61 just South of St. Francisville and just North of Thompson Creek on the West side of 61) ready to pull out for 8:00am Sunday February 21st. This is the ride where you are encouraged to let your sweetheart do the driving.


    Once we get to the Chevron, be fueled up and have something to eat and drink for the day. Lunch will be in the woods! No alcohol or drugs. Every vehicle must have tow points front and back.

    The ride won't officially start till we get off the road at the trail head but we will leave the Chevron headed to the property and show everyone the way. You must be comfortable that your vehicle is street legal. If challenged on route to the trail head (where the ride starts) you're on your own.

    We'll collect waivers from all participants. Participants are responsible for showing proof of current membership, registration, and insurance.


    Hope to see you there!!

    My sweetheart said she was too bored waiting in line last year (her first exposure to trail riding). This thing has turned into a jamboree sized event and needs to be managed as such. I'm not criticizing, just thinking with the volume of participants you may be able to turn this into a great event. Until then we're going to wait it out.

    I'd suggest splitting it into a Saturday ride and a Sunday ride . the volunteers are working so hard with the size of this thing that they would be less burdened with two days. Thanks and props to all those hardworking volunteers.

    Great Idea I'll look for it in the new events and reply that we will be going. Sounds good.

    Thanks
