Read, Aim, Shoot…

On November 1st the Northwest Trail Riders are going having a Turkey Shoot! Get your guns ready…Nerf guns, that is, and meander through the trails to find your Turkey target.

It is being held at Cadra Ranch (end of Old Mill Road) and the registration begins at 9AM. First rider out is at 10AM, last rider out is at 11AM. This fun family event is only $7 for members and $9 for non-members. There will be prizes through third place.

There has been a challenge by a member…she is coming in costume! So, it sounds like the gauntlet has been thrown in to have a costume contest, too.  It is the day after Halloween, so many of you may not have to change from your haunting Saturday night!  :-)
