10/30 Night before Halloween Flatwoods night ride
« on: October 21, 2008, 08:01:25 PM »
Talked to Gregg today about setting up a night ride at flatwoods. We're thinking next thursday, 10/30 is good, from 7:30 to 10pm.  We need at least 8 riders.  I believe it will cost $5 per rider - is that right Gregg?

Pine Log got me into night riding for sure :)

Who's in?  Maybe we could add some Halloween theme/gimmick to make it more interesting.

I confirmed with Eddie, the park manager, that he will let us do this. It would have to be Thursday.

FYI the 5 bucks goes to 'The friends of the county Parks" It goes to general park maintainance and other things including putting on the Squiggy event.

I need to let him know by the end of this week if we are going to do this. So they can schedule the ranger to be there.

I'd definitely be up for it but I have a feeling that y'all are much faster than I am. I wouldn't want to get lost out there in the dark either ??? But if you don't mind putting up with me I'd love to join you.

The n ight before halloween is traditionally known as hell night, If I were you guys I would park the trucks some where else and ride up to the spot, who knows what Hell could happen, especially if that spot is prone to break ins...

Well I was planning on picking up a light so I could join you but I used my savings on a Rays world series ticket instead. I'm not going to settle for a cheesy light either. Needless to say, I won't be able to go unless someone has an extra light that I can use.
